Quote of the Day

Courtesy of my literary crush, Junot Diaz:

How come I am not surprised [about being the first Latino elected to serve on the Pulitzer board]?…I guess that I’m standing in for hundreds of other qualified writers, artists who should have been in that position before me. That’s always what I think about when people tell you, oh, you’re the first. Man, that’s not really the way it should have been.
