Gallows Humor Quote of the Day

leave a comment »

Much of what WikiLeaks has uncovered is enormously unsettling, but I just laughed out loud when I read this quote from a NYT profile of WikiLeaks head Julian Assange:

“When it comes to the point where you occasionally look forward to being in prison on the basis that you might be able to spend a day reading a book, the realization dawns that perhaps the situation has become a little more stressful than you would like.”

It’s a bit of welcome gallows humor in the midst of a story of two stupid wars that should be making us all angrier by the day.
