Quote of the day: HURT

September 23, 2010


When a beast is hurt it roars in incomprehension.
When a bird is hurt it huddle sin its nest.

But when a man is hurt,
he makes himself an expert.
Then he stands there with a glass in his hand
staring into nothing
as if he was forming an opinion.

— Tony Hoagland, from “When Dean Young Talks About Wine”

…I was most fascinated by Jane Mayer’s Talk of the Town piece on Walter Mondale, who makes a savvy assessment of Obama’s presidency so far:

“In my opinion, Obama had a few false presumptions. One was the idea that we were in a post-partisan era.” The other was “the idea of turning things over to Congress—that doesn’t work even when you own Congress. You have to ride ’em.” Further, he suggested that Obama should stop thinking about what he can get from the Republican opposition: “You should explain clearly what you want, and, if they oppose you, attack them for it.”
Also in this issue, nice piece by Rebecca Mead on Elevator Repair Service, whose production of Gatz coming up at the Public Theater is a must-see.
