NOTES

"Actor-playwright Wallace Shawn once told an interviewer: 'I actually believe that what we Americans are doing in the world is wrong. So, even though I have this moderately affable personality in person, I have no interest in leaving an American audience feeling great. I don't think they SHOULD feel great.'"

--From Lawrence Christon, "Wallace Shawn Turns Up the Heat", Los Angeles Times Calendar, May 12, 1991.

"We Americans have the nerve and effrontery not only to savagely protect our interests, but to insist that we be paid and complimented at the same time for being warm-hearted and humanitarian. We are used to reading about the crimes of the Russians or the Chinese and enjoying the feeling that so many terrible things that were being done in the world were not our fault. Now that we're living in this New World Order with just one superpower, that kind of fantasy may be less available to us." --From Lawrence Christon, "Wallace Shawn Turns Up the Heat" in Los Angeles Times Calendar, May 12, 1991.
