Quote of the day

Tommy Smothers, receiving an honorary Emmy last night, 40 years after pulling his name from the list of writers of the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour to increase its chances to win an Emmy by dissociating his "controversial" self from it:
"It’s hard for me to stay silent when I keep hearing that peace is only attainable through war. And there’s nothing more scary than watching ignorance in action,” he said, dedicating his award to “all people who feel compelled to speak out, and are not afraid to speak to power, and won’t shut up and refuse to be silenced.”
Keep swinging, Tommy. Your mom may have always liked Dick best, but the rest of us always preferred you.
