Quote of the Day: Funny man Billy Crystal on the "murky" middle journey...

In my standup work, I always do these characters, older people who are just off to the side. It's easier to write a story about the guy who made it to the top, but the middle is so much more interesting, so much more murky.
-- Billy Crystal (via BrainyQuote)
