"Naturally the common people don't want war.  But, after all, it is  
the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always  
a simple matter to drag the people along.  All you have to do is tell  
them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack  
of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.  It works the same  
in any country."

"Anyone watching MTV will tell you that Marshall Mathers, also known  
as Eminem, Slim Shady and 'Defendant,' has broken out like  
psoriasis.  After listening to his angry tirades filled with juvenile  
angst and contrived mayhem, I expected a rough man to saunter into my  
suite at the Four Seasons for our interview.  I was not prepared for  
the fey, timid little boy who has, no doubt, grown up under a barrage  
of taunts and insults (those directed at his 'look' would certainly  
fall comfortably under the expanding heading of 'constructive  
criticism').  It is with guarded jubilation that I discovered that  
this trailer-tenor has become a born-again Christian.  I also have an  
exclusive preview of Eminem's new CD, which is inspired entirely by  
Bible verses.  Being based on our Lord's Old Testament, of course, it  
will present no discernable departure from his previous misogynistic  
and bloodthirsty rants."

Congress... But I repeat myself."
