Quote of the Day: Monday, September 19, 2005

Remember that standard journalism legend in which two cars crash in an intersection, five people witness it, and, minutes later, all five people tell different stories about what happened? This exercise doesn’t tell us anything we didn’t know already: people lie, memory fails. But it does confront us with choices.” – Laura Wexler, from her essay “Saying Good-Bye to “Once Upon A Time,” or Implementing Postmodernism in Creative Nonfiction”
