Quote of the day - Joe Sobran

Criminal genius can be akin to artistic genius. The master criminal is not always driven by gain alone, and he may have no real desire to hurt others. But he finds the challenge of outwitting the law irresistible. It's almost aesthetic: Just as there is art for art's sake, there is crime for crime's sake. And even law-abiding people may have a sneaking admiration for the great criminal. (Please don't ask what this has to do with politics, or with President Clinton.)
