WIsh I'd written that - the problem with corporate suits
- Bill Veeck, The Hustler's Handbook, as quoted by Charles Pierce.
Notice how easily you can substitute so many different things for "Commissioner [of baseball]" - just about anything that the suits of Corporate America touch, in fact. Capitalism is a great model for economic diversity and success, but as Whittaker Chambers once pointed out, it's an ideology the same as Communism and Socialism, and if it lacks a moral foundation, it's no better than they are.
