Quote of the week

Dude, Bernie Madoff stole FIFTY BILLION DOLLARS. In a PONZI SCHEME. Which is the criminal equivalent of convincing people you are going to fly to the moon in a refridgerator box. The single, unpleasant truth is that most people, particularly criminals, are NOT complex. They are shallow, greedy sons of bitches to whom we attribute genius planning or complex motivations in order to preserve a false sense of order in our universe.

Leverage is quite possibly the best television show I've never seen in my life.

Um ... let me explain. I stumbled across the Kung Fu Monkey blog a while ago, I don't even remember exactly how now. Anyway, the post on The Sequence Shuffle was excellent enough to get it added to my list of RSS subscriptions, and since then John has regularly provided commentary on each Leverage episode as it screened. He has an easy, engaging writing style and I really enjoy the writer's insights he brings to the characters. I wonder if the show is any good? Maybe they will screen it in Australia sometime.
