NORMING PATHOLOGY:

Wal-Mart And The Great Income Divide (Martin T. Sosnoff, 01.26.07, Wal-Mart)

"Unskilled single mothers" are my favorite charity, especially when they're giving me lapdances.

Moral and intellectual cripples like yourself should really not discuss grown-up things like marriage.

Jack, to which moral and intellectual cripples are you addressing your remarks? Just asking.
