    The corporate grip on opinion in the United States is one of the wonders of the Western World. No First World country has ever managed to eliminate so entirely from its media all objectivity—much less dissent.
    Gore Vidal (b. 1925)

    From hope and fear set free,

    Winds somewhere safe to sea.
    —A.C. (Algernon Charles)
