There is either understanding, or no understanding.

The prospect of domination of the nation's scholars by Federal employment, project allocation, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded.

Yet in holding scientific discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower in his farewell address on Jan. 17, 1961.

The late Townes Van Zandt famously said of Olney: "Any time anyone asks me who my favorite music writers are... I say Mozart, Lightnin Hopkins, Bob Dylan and Dave Olney. Dave Olney is one of the best songwriters I've ever heard — and that's true. I mean that from my heart."

The role of politics is to keep things in order,

I am certain there is too much certainty in the world.~ Michael Crichton, MD.

There is no such thing as consensus science. If it’s consensus, it isn’t science. If it’s science, it isn’t consensus. Period.~ Michael Crichton, MD.

I would rather have questions that can't be answered than answers that can't be questioned.~ Richard Feynman

Liberty is the possibility of doubting, the possibility of making a mistake, the possibility of searching and experimenting, the possibility of saying “No” to any authority — literary, artistic, philosophic, religious, social and even political.~ Ignazio Silone

“Fascism should rightly be called corporatism, as it is the merger of corporate and government power.”

― Benito Mussolini

“A society that separates it’s scholars from it’s warriors will have it’s thinking done by cowards and it’s fighting done by fools.”

I can't get over how interested people are in Zappa now. He was considered a novelty act throughout most of his career, like Spike Jones, but transgressive.

He had a loyal cult following from the 1970s into the '80s.  I had a number of friends who would go to his concerts whenever he came near by.  It seemed like he would play a medium-size venue (The Palladium or The Beacon Theater) in NYC at least once a year, but never large arenas like MSG or stadiums.  He didn't get much radio play other than a few "pre-playlist-era" stations or college stations though.  I think he was considered more musically "convoluted" or satirical than he was considered a novelty act to most critics and other musicians - "Dancin' Fool" and "Valley Girl" notwithstanding.  He likely was a fan of Spike Jones though certainly more transgressive.

Never saw that one before, but I have seen this one for a number of years:
If you want to get laid, go to college. If you want an education, go to the library.  -  Frank Zappa

That quote seems more like something Ray Bradbury may have said, but likely did not. 
 
I heard Zappa interviewed on NPR in the early 90's, after the Soviet Union broke up. He had just come back from Russia.  People wanted to know how capitalism worked and had asked: How do you make money running hotels? There is no profit in it.  He said, You don't make money running hotels, you make money selling them.  In other words, assets inflate by design. That was news to me too at the time.
