      --Toy Story

"I saw a werewolf drinking a piña colada at Trader Vic's /
And his hair was perfect."
      --Warren Zevon, "Werewolves of London"

"I want to be a clone"
      --Steve Taylor, from the song of the same title

"I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed, or numbered. My life is my own."
