Quote of the Day (John Ford, on ‘Irish and Genius’)

“I’m tough to live with--heaven knows and Hollywood didn't help — Irish and genius don't mix well.”—Four-time Oscar-winning director (and equally legendary crank) John Ford, letter to his wife Mary, quoted in Scott Eyman, Print the Legend: The Life and Times of John Ford (2012)

Shh-h-h-h. Not so loud. Otherwise, more than 40 million Americans of Irish descent can permanently kiss goodbye to those MacArthur grants!
