Did he really say that?

The kind of humor I like is the thing that makes me laugh for five seconds and think for ten minutes = GEORGE CARLIN...Stained glass, engraved glass, frosted glass–give me plain glass = JOHN FOWLES...Music is the mathematics of the gods = PYTHAGORAS...Nothing is more fluid than language = R.L.SWIHART

re: The Fourth H

Three H words appear on a recent page and another H-word
appears in a recent comment but, more importantly,
the fourth one was inspired by Eric Sevareid

Next to power without honor,
the most dangerous thing in the world is power without humor

Sevareid was also quoted on a 9/13/12 blog:

The biggest big business in America is...
the manufacture, refinement and distribution of anxiety

It is no wonder that Walter Cronkite regarded his CBS colleague
as a master of the extemporaneous essay
