Quote for the day.

"I don't expect to come to New York to 'deal with the publisher.' The only way to deal with him would be to shoot him, and I don't want to spare the ammunition."

—E. B. White to Harriet Walden, 3 September 1971, Letters of E. B. White 574 (White was in the midst of revising Strunk and White's The Elements of Style).
