Quote of the Week

"We think confidence games and hoaxes -- see, for example, most any David Mamet movie -- are sophisticated, elaborate schemes designed to slip by people's natural resistance to falsehood. But that's a mistake -- we don't have such a facility. A sucker isn't born every minute; a sucker is born every time someone is born."
- Peter Sagal, The Book of Vice, p. 111
