	"When Ellen [DeGeneres] told me she was gay in real life, which was
	 20 years ago, I was ignorant about the subject...  I worried for
	 her safety because of the world's prejudice.  When she came out [on
	 'Ellen'], I still worried for her safety 20 years later -- which is
	 a sad commentary on our society."

				- Betty DeGeneres [Ellen's mother]


On the stock market..."Then there was the great comic Joe Frisco's
great line:  'I don't have to worry about the crash.  I went broke in
the boom.'" (Milt Larson)

"How bad was it?  E.F. Hutton didn't talk.  He yelled."  (Cutler Daily

"To give you an idea of how bad this stock market thing is, today
Microsoft applied for a small business loan." (Jay Leno)
