Quote of the Day

"Hitchhiking is choosing to have faith in other human beings, and man, like a small god, rewards those who have faith in him."

-- Pippa Bacca and Silvia Moro, two performance artists who demonstrated their faith in humanity by hitch-hiking across the Balkans wearing wedding dresses.

I'm so used to reading (and writing) unproved statements that just hang there. Not only is their truth debatable, but so is the sincerity with which they are presented. Making an outrageous statement for shock value is so easy.

Pippa Bacca proved beyond all doubt that she really believed what she said. She also proved that she was wrong.

When you read my little pearls of arrogance here, please remember that I'm not prepared to stake my life on anything I write.

I'm sorry.
