Famous quotes containing the words sport and/or radio:

    I wish glib and indiscriminate critics of industrialists had some conception of the problems that have to be met by factory management.... General condemnation of employers is a favorite indoor sport of the uninformed intelligentsia who assume the role of lance- bearers for labor.
    Mary Barnett Gilson (1877–?)

    A liberal is a socialist with a wife and two children.
    —Anonymous. BBC Radio 4 (April 8, 1990)
