Famous Quotes – Famous Sayings – Christmas

Instead of being a time of unusual behavior, Christmas is perhaps the only time in the  year when people can obey their natural impulses and express their true sentiments without feeling self-conscious and, perhaps, foolish.  Christmas, in short, is about the only chance a man has to be himself.

Seth Godin Quotes

-Seth Godin

Seth Godin on Misogyny and Fox News Porn

Seth Godin posted this morning about The end of misogyny? and had this to say:

“It’s sort of astonishing… in my lifetime, we’ve seen the end of public (but certainly not private) attacks on people because of race or mainstream religion (fringe beliefs and sexual orientation are still fair game, apparently)… but trying to humiliate half the population because of their gender seems just fine.”
– Seth Godin

It looks kind of like pimping for Robert Greenwald and a website called “Fox News Porn” which is selling a video of racy, sexy videos from segments shown on the Fox News channel.
