Martin Luther King didn’t coach t-ball; neither did Ghandi. Start a revolution if you want, but that’s not a price that I’m willing to pay.  (Tony Jones on the death of “emergent”)

I despise “revolutionary” branding like the image of a Hugo boss glasses wearing, goateed face 20 something drinking free-trade coffee while wearing a Che Guevara t-shirt listening to protest music as if that is a revolution. That is capitalism and you have been bought by a brand. Sorry to inform you that what you thought were changing actually co-opted your myopia. (Drew Tatusko on the same thing)

Astrophysics is his passion. Albert Einstein and Bruce Lee are among his idols. (Moshe Kai Cavalin, 11)

If this were a family, AT&T would be the drunken uncle who always throws up at wedding receptions, and Apple would be the long suffering brother who always has to drive him home. (Charlie Sorrel on At&T’s botched unveiling of the 3G iPhone)

It adds up to a perpetual all-you-can-hate buffet, which, frankly, can be quite delicious when a zillionaire superstar misbehaves his way out of town and then gets suspended for 50 games in his new city for taking fertility drugs.  (Kevin Hench on sports and hate)
