Once we control our capacity for love and happiness, the light has been turned on.

As soon as the toilet is flushed or the faucet turned on-or the bathtub, the shower, the humidifier, the washing machine-these contaminants leave the water and enter the air. A recent study shows that the most efficient way of exposing yourself to chemical contaminants in tap water is to turn on a dishwasher.

They’re huge corporations, selling audiences, potential consumers, to other businesses, all linked up closely to the government, especially the big media. What picture of the world do you expect them to present?

    Creed Bratton
  • The study of how substances alter gene expression is part of the field of epigenetics. Some chemical exposures appear to turn on and turn off genes in ways that disregulate cell growth and predispose for cancer.

    Steven Wright
  • I could turn on my radio in the morning when I was getting dressed for school and hear Frank Sinatra and Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman and think this is the music. Now that music is art.

    Woody Allen
  • As a child of the 1970s, I couldn’t hold a narrative in my head; I was lucky if I could hold a joke in my head, because every time you turn on television or radio, it wipes the slate clean – at least in my case.

That’s pretty much when I started writing.

  • We sit at our consoles and play “Gears of War”, but we don’t see images from war. We don’t turn on the news and see the evidence of war, the result of war. Maybe twice a year, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, we’ll go out, we’ll hang our flags, we’ll try to inculcate in our children some sense of national honor for the fallen. But really, we don’t see it. We just don’t see the pictures. There’s no drive-by on the freeway of death up close. So we don’t really see bravery.

    Bruce Campbell

They don’t understand how easy it is for things to break apart, how someone you thought would be by your side forever can just disappear, or turn on you, or decide she likes someone more than she likes you. Parents always talk about romantic relationships being so ephemeral and fleeting in high school. What they don’t get is that friendships can be the same way.

    Lauren Barnholdt
