Favorite Columnists Quotes

1. "The real enemy" is the totality of physical and mental constraints by which capital, or class society, or statism, or the society of the spectacle expropriates everyday life, the time of our lives. The real enemy is not an object apart from life. It is the organization of life by powers detached from it and turned against it. The apparatus, not its personnel, is the real enemy. But it is by and through the apparatchiks and everyone else participating in the system that domination and deception are made manifest. The totality is the organization of all against each and each against all. It includes all the policemen, all the social workers, all the office workers, all the nuns, all the op-ed columnists, all the drug kingpins from Medellin to Upjohn, all the syndicalists and all the situationists."
Author: Bob Black
2. "These days, however, I am much calmer - since I realised that it's technically impossible for a woman to argue against feminism. Without feminism, you wouldn't be allowed to have a debate on women's place in society. You'd be too busy giving birth on the kitchen floor - biting down on a wooden spoon, so as not to disturb the men's card game - before going back to quick-liming the dunny. This is why those female columnists in the Daily Mail - giving daily wail against feminism - amuse me. They paid you £1,600 for that, dear, I think. And I bet it's going in your bank account, and not your husband's. The more women argue loudly, against feminism, the more they both prove it exists and that they enjoy its hard-won privileges."
Author: Caitlin Moran
3. "There were reprints of American editorials. Liberals saw it as a resurgence of social protest and decried the discrimination, poverty, and hunger that had provoked it. Conservative columnists acidly pointed out that hungry people don't steal stereo systems first and called for a crackdown in law enforcement. All of the reasoned editorials sounded hollow in light of the perverse randomness of the event. It was as if only a thin wall of electric lighting protected the great cities of the world from total barbarism."
Author: Dan Simmons
4. "Political columnists and sports pundits are rewarded for being overconfident."
Author: Daniel Kahneman
5. "Thirty years ago [written 2009], over-regulation, over-taxation, mis-regulation, statism, state corporatism, and economic folly, cosiness and regulatory capture, and a crescent ideological enemy without, who were assisted by enemies – both fifth columnists and useful fools – within, had led to a crisis of confidence in the West, and in all lands that – and amongst all peoples, particularly those who were oppressed in their own lands, who – loved and desired liberty. Of course, thirty years ago, Britain had Margaret Thatcher to turn to."
Author: G.M.W. Wemyss
6. "The permanent power brokers of this city are the columnists."
Author: Hugh Newell Jacobsen
7. "I don't usually comment on columnists' ideas of what I'm thinking. That's a dangerous game to get into."
Author: Leon Panetta
8. "He was nice. But the waitress spilled a drink in my lap during dinner, and then I noticed he had apiece of spinach in his teeth, and . . . you know, there's nowhere to go but down from there.""And then what?""I faked a work emergency.""Do newspaper columnists have work emergencies?""I might have led him to believe I was an ace reporter. And that there was a robbery somewhere"
Author: Maisey Yates
9. "Mother is the first word that occurs to politicians and columnists and popes when they raise the question, 'Why isn't life turning out the way we want it?'"
Author: Mary Kay Blakely
10. "It's a good thing that columnists don't make homosexuality their last taboo anymore. But I wish the columnists themselves would come out too."
Author: Michael Musto
11. "Do not be taken in by 'insiderisms.' Fledgling columnists, eager to impress readers with their grasp of journalistic jargon, are drawn to such arcane spellings as 'lede.' Where they lede, do not follow."
Author: William Safire
