- Writing is like hitting yourself on the head with a hammer. It always feels good when you finish.
- The old attitude toward newspapers was that they were completely disposable – today’s newspaper is tomorrow’s fish wrap.
- This satire business, that was one of the worst things that ever happened to me. I was certified funny. From then on, I had to be funny – people expected it. Twice the work for the same pay.
- I always had this feeling when writing about all politics… that when it’s so lopsided, that if a newspaper or news organization has any weight whatsoever, it should automatically go to the other side.
- I’ve written just about everything for the sake of putting shoes on the children’s feet – and a bottle of gin in the cupboard.
- I still get a few dirty looks over the racks in the supermarket, but nobody kicks me in the shins on Water Street. I’ve made sort of a point, apart from being a social dud, not to fraternize with the people I write about.
- Newfoundlanders, what are we? We’re slobbering idiots, slack-jawed simpletons, rustic fish billies living in Dogpatch-on-the-rocks, lower than lower Slobovians, the laughing stock and ‘white trash’ of Canada.
