When thinking of Tom Fox over the weekend, I was reminded of something actor and improv guru Ali Farahnakian says in his one man show "Word of Mouth":

If when you die, the cause isn't assassination, you're not taking enough chances.*

The more you think about it, the more you realize how genuinely wise this is.

* Paraphrased because I don't remember his exact words.

Personally, I plan to be killed by Focus on the Family for performing abortions with an overheated Magic Wand. It's the only way I feel I can make my mark on this world-- and if that mark has to be in the shape of a ten-inch fake dick, so be it.
