"It is going to be a true generation of swine, a decade run by cops with no humor, with dead heroes, and diminished expectations. A decade that will go down in history as The Gray Area. At the end of the decade, no one will be sure of anything except that you must obey the rules, sex will kill you, politicians lie, rain is poison, and the world is run by whores. These are terrible things to have to know in your life, even if you're rich."
- Hunter S. Thompson, Kingdom of Fear
