Small Potatoes

“I got a letter from a lightning rod company this morning trying to put the fear of God in me, but with small success. Lightning seems to have lost its menace. Compared to what is going on on Earth today, heaven’s firebrands are penny fireworks with wet fuses.”

—E.B. White (1899-1985), author & essayist, One Man’s Meat, 1938
