"It's a queer world, and the longer I live in it the queerer I find it.
Once I thought it would be a good idea to regulate things myself, and
run the world as it ought to be run; but I gave it up long ago.  The
world's a stage, they say; but the show ain't always amusing, by a long
chalk, and sometimes I wish I didn't have a reserved seat."--John
Merrick, _Aunt Jane's Nieces_, by L. Frank Baum
