Why People Like Bad Movies

“People didn't like the [1964 World's] Fair. People tried to like it, though. They agreed to like it. The Fair was hard to like, but they agreed to like it. Not to like it was the same thing as to break the agreement that was all that stood between them and being alone.”

-- George W.S. Trow, “Within the Context of No Context,” pg. 113
