Two Terrible Quotations For Our Time
Quotation Number One:
Lawyer: Chapman's Son Sold N-Word Tape
HONOLULU (AP) - Television bounty hunter Duane "Dog" Chapman's son taped a private phone conversation in which the reality star used a racial slur repeatedly, then sold it to a tabloid for "a lot of money," Chapman's lawyer said Thursday. "I guess because of whatever level of anger he had of his father, he felt the need to express it in that manner," attorney Brook Hart told The Associated Press. Tucker Chapman could not be reached for comment; no one answered the telephone at a Honolulu number listed under his name.
Quotation Number Two:
"It was almost normal for people over thirty to be frightened of their own children. And with good reason, for hardly a week passed in which the Times did not carry a paragraph describing how some eavesdropping little sneak--"child hero" was the phrase generally used--had overheard some compromising remark and denounced his parents to the Thought Police."
-George Orwell, 1984, Chapter I.
