Quote of the Day (Joe Queenan, on Icons as a Cure for Missing Celebrities)

“The professionally iconic perform an important function in society by taking our minds off taxes and Social Security and the ugly specter of death. It hurts us all when those who have provided so much entertainment over the years—Tiger Woods, Lindsay Lohan, Lil’ Kim—suddenly disappear from sight. This is why Madonna is so very important to the fate of the world. She never goes away.”—Joe Queenan, “The Case of the Missing Celebrities,” The Wall Street Journal, Jan. 16-17, 2016
