sent up the exhaust stack compared to good-quality coal.

original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made,
through disobedience and through rebellion.” — Oscar Wilde, Soul of Man

“The free market is perfectly natural... do you think I am some kind of
dummy?” — Jarvis Cocker
