Bread And Circuses

The New York Times "Quotation of the Day" (July 4, 2008)

"People go ape when they see it. It’s a feeling. It’s a feeling that takes over a whole stadium. If anyone in the stands opened their mouth and objected, there would be hell to pay."

(Jim Alexander, whose company, Superflag, creates field-size American flags for sporting events.)


How about a gigantic toilet, to symbolize where the country is headed?
