Quote of the Day (Fran Lebowitz, on Lunatics and the Internet)

“I'm sure the Internet is a wonderful thing in many ways. But one of the bad things it does is connect a lot of people that, before the Internet, would have just been by themselves being lunatics. If someone is just a lunatic in their room, or a lunatic in their town, society can absorb it pretty easily. But if all the lunatics connect up, it can be very dangerous.”—American humorist Fran Lebowitz quoted by Jim Beckerman, “Fran Lebowitz Always Speaks Her Mind as a Quintessential New Yorker, by Way of Morristown,” The Bergen Record, Feb. 19, 2023
