It seems pointless to be quoted if one isn’t going to be quotable . . . it’s better to be quotable than to be honest.”   —   Tom Stoppard

(I think this must be a line said by a character in one of his plays.  It sounds kind of tongue-in-cheek to me.  Maybe, it has to do with choosing one’s words more carefully, because sometimes people can be too brutally honest.  But, is being quotable really better than being honest?  Does anyone know the particulars of this line???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(I wonder how he views the computerized voting machines, that have a very high potential for manipulating the actual count?  Hmm!  I know a lot of people don’t have a very high comfort level with this method.  And, they’ve come to doubt the democratic process because of this.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
