Why I loved Ross Thomas...

From Chinaman's Chance, a wonderfully cynical political thriller about California city politics:

Liberals, in her opinion, were the kind of people who'd work for Exxon during the day and then sneak off to stuff envelopes for Common Cause during the night. Liberals were the kind of people who'd file into the corporate concentration camps wearing buttons that said 'we MEANT well'.
I couldn't ever call myself a liberal, because I know that somewhere Ross would be laughing at me.
