This Week’s Quote: “At some point, during every stage show I do, I take a sip of water and ask the audience, ‘How’s the water here?’ I haven’t gotten a positive response yet. Not one.

This Week’s Quote: “The highwayman takes solely upon himself the responsibility, danger, and crime of his own act. He does not pretend that he has any rightful claim to your money, or that he intends to use it for your own benefit. He does not pretend to be anything but a robber…Furthermore, having taken your money, he leaves you, as you wish him to do. He does not persist in following you on the road, against your will; assuming to be your rightful “sovereign,” on account of the “protection” he affords you…The proceedings of those robbers and murderers, who call themselves “the government,” are directly the opposite of these of the single highwayman.” —Lysander Spooner
