From the Quotation of the day mailing list, 2010-07-11:

"If I'm going to die, I'm ready. But I'm going out playing `Sophisticated Lady.' "

-- Charles Mingus, musician, on refusing to leave a concert venue in 1972 that had received a bomb threat. Mingus told police "Racism planted that bomb, but racism ain't strong enough to kill this music."
