Wisdom from Polonius


David R. Young, aide to US Secretary of State Henry A Kissinger

I’m a plumber. I fix leaks.


Timothy Crouse

A lightweight, by definition, is a man who cannot assert his authority over the national press, cannot manipulate reporters, cannot finesse questions, prevent leaks or command a professional public relations operation.


Howard Brenton and David Hare

The press and politicians. A delicate relationship. Too close, and danger ensues. Too far apart and democracy itself cannot function without the essential exchange of information. Creative leaks, a discreet lunch, interchange in the Lobby, the art of the unattributable telephone call, late at night.


James A. McClure, US Senator

In that hearing, we didn’t hear anything.
