The Slice

Do you agree with F. Scott Fitzgerald?

I'm not in the office this week. The Slice Blog will be back in gear on Monday. In the meantime, here's something I''ve been thinking about.

Was watching a PBS rerun the other night focusing on Garrison Keillor. I think I had seen it a few years ago.

But there was at least one moment I hadn't remembered. Keillor recited a quotation he attributed to fellow Minnesotan F. Scott Fitzgerald.

"What people are ashamed of usually makes a good story."

Of course, that assumes people are capable of feeling shame, and that's not always clear.

Interesting observation, nonetheless.

Now here's an unrelated yet entertaining quote from Keillor himself.

"A good newspaper is never good enough, but a lousy newspaper is a joy forever."
