Inspirující myšlenky...

My budeme například prodávat konzervativní ideály, protože jsou dobré a žádají se. A budeme taky dělat liberální ideály – jsou pokrokové a mají své odběratele. Potom tu máme ideály komunistické, i na nich se dá vydělat. Dále jsou všelijaké církve a spiritisti a ateisti a mezinárodní politika a spousta jiných věcí, které se mají vyrábět. Tak jen do toho, mládenci. Každý list bude mít svůj ideál. Ale jakmile ten ideál bude mít málo konzumentů, nechá se padnout. Musíme mít též jeden velký nezávislý list, který bude mít za úkol potírat Johna H. Higginse, protože mnoho lidí si něco takového bude přát. A trochu rámusu občas udělá dobře; chlapci, perte se drobet navzájem. Lidi za své peníze chtějí vidět pořádný sport. To je všechno.
