“Help us to make America great again.”
Octavia E. Butler, Parable of the Talents

Charles Stross
“one of the quirkier cognitive disorders to which software project management is prone.”
Charles Stross, The Rhesus Chart

“Greene’s nonconformity infuriated Frank Sinatra. He wanted Greene for the Rat Pack, but Shecky had no interest. Sinatra didn’t take rejection well. One night a real-life incident became Greene’s most famous joke: “Frank Sinatra saved my life once. I was jumped by a bunch of guys in a parking lot. They were beating me with blackjacks.

Kliph Nesteroff, The Comedians: Drunks, Thieves, Scoundrels, and the History of American Comedy

Bob Hope was a blackface comedian. He abandoned it only because he was late for a gig: 'I missed the streetcar to this theater one night and I didn’t have time to put the blackface on.

Kliph Nesteroff, The Comedians: Drunks, Thieves, Scoundrels, and the History of American Comedy

“Al Boasberg was an influential comedy writer who focused on format and persona rather than jokes. Not only was he Baker’s main writer, but he essentially created the comic personalities of Jack Benny, Milton Berle, George Burns and Bob Hope.”
