"I have a friend who just got back from the Soviet Union, and told me the people
there are hungry for information about the West. He was asked about many
things, but I will give you two examples that are very revealing about life in
the Soviet Union. The first question he was asked was if we had exploding
television sets. You see, they have a problem with the picture tubes on color
television sets, and many are exploding. They assumed we must be having
problems with them too. The other question he was asked often was why the
CIA had killed Samantha Smith, the little girl who visited the Soviet Union a
few years ago; their propaganda is very effective.

Im often asked the question, "Do you think there is extraterrestrial intelli-
gence?" I give the standard arguments -- there are a lot of places out there,
and use the word *billions*, and so on. And then I say it would be astonishing
to me if there werent extraterrestrial intelligence, but of course there is as
yet no compelling evidence for it. And then Im asked, "Yeah, but what do you
really think?" I say, "I just told you what I really think." "Yeah, but
whats your gut feeling?" But I try not to think with my gut. Really, its
okay to reserve judgment until the evidence is in.

"Once he had one leg in the White House and the nation trembled under his
roars. Now he is a tinpot pope in the Coca-Cola belt and a brother to the
forlorn pastors who belabor halfwits in galvanized iron tabernacles behind
the railroad yards."
-- H. L. Mencken, writing of William Jennings Bryan, counsel for the
supporters of Tennessees anti-evolution law at the Scopes "Monkey
Trial" in 1925.
