"One should not associate with controversy;
one should always reach for the highest ratings;
one should never forget that there is safety in numbers;
one should always remember that comedy, adventure, and
escapism provide the best atmosphere for selling."
Peter G. Peterson
(1926-) Chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations, Senior Chairman of the Blackstone Group, US Secretary of Commerce (1972-73)
as President of Bell & Howell on the standards of advertisers, New York Times, September 28, 1961

    Many people just want to escape, want someone to tell them what to do and want someone else to be responsible for their problems. Peterson is giving the people what they want, but they don't realize how much they are losing.
