Title: Interesting Quote
Post by: Cheryl on September 19, 2006, 02:08:57 PM
This is from Ben Blake at SpeedTV.com and certainly sums up today's entertainment version of NASCAR:

"A reader, mindful of NASCARís threats to make the playoff script infinitely changeable, sends along this quote from commentator Walter Lippmann, in 1931: When everything is dramatic, nothing is dramatic. When everything is highly spiced, nothing after a while has much flavor. When everything is new and startling, the human mind just ceases to be startled."

Very appropriate!
