"I don’t know why people think attention spans are getting shorter. Thirty years ago, you could go and get a sandwich in the middle of a Kojak episode, come back and still follow it. Today, if you get a glass of water in the middle of Homeland you have to pause and go back."

Malcolm Gladwell, The Guardian, July 26, 2014.

"Running teaches you about the inherent unfairness of the world. Two people can work exactly the same, in fact, one can be infinitely more devoted and train much harder and not do as well. An object lesson in how unfair life is."

They are brutal, savage events, and nothing the state tries to do can mask that reality."

Hon. Alex Kozinski, Chief Judge of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, dissenting opinion.
