Some people when they look for a job in journalism ask themselves, What do I like to do and Who can take me there? Who can get me to a war zone? To a ballpark? To Wall Street? To politicians, to movie stars? Who’s got the vehicle? And you send them your resume and you say, “I want a seat in your car.” … And you wait.
But there are some people, who don’t wait.
I don’t know exactly what going on inside them; but they have this… hunger. It’s almost like an ache.
Something inside you says I can’t wait to be asked I just have to jump in and do it.” —Robert Krulwich’s commencement speech at Berkeley’s School of Journalism.
“The official Church response was something along the lines of ‘The Book of Mormon the musical might entertain you for a night but The Book of Mormon,’ — the book as scripture — ‘will change your life through Jesus. Which we actually completely agree with. The Mormon Church’s response to this musical is almost like our q.e.d. at the end of it. That’s a cool, American response to a ribbing — a big musical that’s done in their name.”
“Before the Church responded, a lot of people would ask us, ‘Are you afraid of what the Church would say? And Trey and I were like, ‘They’re going to be cool.’ And they were like, ‘No they’re not. There are going to be protests.’ And we were like, ‘Nope, they’re going to be cool.’ We weren’t that surprised by the Church’s response. We had faith in them.”” —Matt Stone talks about the feedback his musical The Book of Mormon has gotten from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
