Famous quotes containing the words media and/or home:
“The media have just buried the last yuppie, a pathetic creature who had not heard the news that the great pendulum of public conciousness has just swung from Greed to Compassion and from Tex-Mex to meatballs.”
—Barbara Ehrenreich (b. 1941)
“For most visitors to Manhattan, both foreign and domestic, New York is the Shrine of the Good Time. I dont see how you stand it, they often say to the native New Yorker who has been sitting up past his bedtime for a week in an attempt to tire his guest out. Its all right for a week or so, but give me the little old home town when it comes to living. And, under his breath, the New Yorker endorses the transfer and wonders himself how he stands it.”
—Robert Benchley (18891945)
