Quotes of the Week- from Billionaires....
Since April 15th, the day of paying taxes here in les etats unis is just 'round the corner, we thought we'd dedicate our weekly series to famous (or infamous) quotes to some very, very rich people.
I must admit I had this idea before last night's 'Simpsons' episode, which featured Mr. Burns going to a billionaire's retreat, but I did decide to use eccentric Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban as the quote for the entry on our sister blog 'Politics, Culture and Other Wastes of Time' (see our links section).
Today, on this blog, we are going with a quip from Donald Trump, aka The Donald, who is known to be a bit of an ego-maniac, and if there was any doubt, this line should illustrate that proverbial point:
"All of the women on The Apprentice flirted with me- consciously or unconsciously. That's to be expected," Donald Trump.
I wonder if that also includes lesbians.
SIDEBAR: My good friend Christopher Knight of Reidsville, NC, pulled off a brilliant April Fool's Day prank when he suggested that radical minister Johnny Robertson of Martinsville, Va., who is a bit of a small-town Jim Jones, tried to attack the Pope at the Vatican. He actually got an email from the State Department saying that his prank caused some concern! He used an actual layout from The New York Post, and an imaginary BBC headline with an actual footage of some other lunatic trying to go after the Pope.
Check out his blog 'The Knight Shift' on our links page to see this for yourself!
