"I hated mystery. I think it comes from being religious, being a Fundamentalist, especially, because that's all about certainty."

"Somehow, jumping up a foot to stare at my own face framed in Lincoln's Springfield shaving mirror makes the whole far-fetched, grisly, inspiring story of the country seem more shocking and more true."

- Sarah Vowell [born 1969]
