Harlan Ellison, writer, agnostic, and "possibly the most contentious person on Earth". Love him or hate him, it's hard to ignore him.

"If they're spouting evil, and if they're turning bother against sister and man against man and woman against man. I think they deserve to be-- well, I'm a mild person actually-- I think we should probably just hang 'em up on the top half of a dutch door and beat 'em across the belly with an aluminium ball bat 'til their piss runs red." -Harlan Ellison

I've been a fan since reading the first Sci Fi story authored by the great man.

"...till their piss runs red."

Classic Harlan.

Never heard of the man 'til now. Someone who doesn't mince words. Hopefully I will have the opportunity to read one of his works in the future.

A favorite short story of mine is "A Boy and His Dog".

“You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant.”
Harlan Ellison

“If you make people think they're thinking, they'll love you; but if you really make them think, they'll hate you.”
Harlan Ellison

“The world is turning into a cesspool of imbeciles.”
Harlan Ellison

Harlan Ellison is an example of a true wordsmith and a damn fine one at that.
