Craig's one liners

UPDATE: well... I don't know if Craig withdrew his comment or Paul, the Reluctant Blogger, did away with it...

Craig: "brevity's the soul of wit"

this must be one of the most abused cliches: it assumes the writer has something smart to say (plenty of people who bring up that cliche really don't...) AND that it can be said briefly (this disqualifies complex ideas -- you can't possibly convey those in one liners).
