More Sorkin

I was doing favorite dialog from “The West Wing” last week. I’ve been re-watching the first few seasons and re-reading the scripts. I’m in a mood for Sorkin. This was is from Toby Zeigler, who has more or less the same job in that fictitious White House as I have at PCC: communications director

“No. But I do know that if you combine the populations of Great Britain, France, Germany, Japan, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark and Australia you’ve got a population roughly the size of the United States. We had 32,000 gun deaths last year and they had 112. Do you think it’s because Americans are more homicidal by nature? Or do you think it’s because those guys have gun control laws.”

Lovely.
