The Nature of Fame
This one simply needs more circulation, even if it isn't true (though my guess is that it is!) It hit my mailbox in September 1996:
Comments by actor Jason Alexander, "George" on the TV sitcom Seinfeld, discussing the nature of fame on Dennis Miller Live:
I once went to speak at a school, and there was a 16-year-old girl. And the girl says to me, "You know what? I don't care what I do, I just want to be famous."
And I thought, you know, I should really just shoot her in the head because it would serve two things: It would make her famous as the girl that Jason Alexander shot in the head, and it would, you know, spare the world of the banality of the rest of her life.
