Quote of the Day

“Suddenly, without warning, [H.L.] Hunt dropped to the floor and began furiously crawling around the table. He made one lap around, then two, before the startled Pederson asked what he was doing. Hunt replied that he was indulging in his favorite exercise activity, “creeping.” “I’m a crank about creeping!” he blurted, still circling the table.

“Don’t go too fast,” Ruth pleaded.
“Yes, please slow down,” Pederson’s photographer said. “I want to get your picture.”

How appropriate for, quite possibly, the creepiest, weirdest, greediest lunatic the US has ever known.

I don't know...I actually found this to be kind of endearing.

Some of the political goings on in this book were pretty clearly underlying some characters in Warren Ellis's Crooked Little Vein.
