Hard Case Crime Quote of the Day (from Somebody Owes Me Money by Donald E. Westlake)

"The girl I went with last year ... kept wanting me to put money in the stock market.... I’d tell her I’d rather play the races than the market because I knew the races and I didn’t know the market, and she’d get mad and start claiming that horse-racing and the stock market weren’t the same thing, and I’d say of course they were and give her analogies, and she’d get madder and insist the analogies were false, and so it went until finally we gave the whole thing up and she went her way and I went mine."
