Famous quotes containing the word cockburn:

    Nothing sets a person up more than having something turn out just the way it’s supposed to be, like falling into a Swiss snowdrift and seeing a big dog come up with a little cask of brandy round its neck.
    —Claud Cockburn (1904–1981)

    —Alexander Cockburn (b. 1941)

    Are you more likely to tolerate drivel than you were four years ago? I think the answer is yes. Four years of Reagan has deadened the senses against a barrage of uninterrupted nonsense.
    —Alexander Cockburn (b. 1941)
