Quotation of the day
Vulture brings us the best quotation of the day from their “Run, Fat Boy, Run” post:
This summer the newly elected French president Nicolas Sarkozy’s morning jogs had les bien-pensants in a lather. “Western civilization, in its best sense, was born with the promenade,”
a “leading intellectual” sniffed on French television in July. “Walking
is a sensitive, spiritual act. Jogging is management of the body. The
jogger says I am in control. It has nothing to do with meditation.” Quelle vulgarité!
