RIP Tom Wolfe

The Internet is the modern form of knitting.  In the old days women who had nothing to do would knit, but at least you got something out of it -- a pair of socks, maybe a scarf, occasionally a little bedspread.  That's mostly what the Internet is, just passing the time.  But unfortunately you are dealing with words that can have meaning.

-- Thomas Kennerly (Tom) Wolfe (2 March 1931 - 14 May 2018), best-selling American author and journalist, American Spectator interview (2005)
