Anyone who for long pursues the calling of a job in opinions eventually arrives at the condition of an intellectual slot machine. If the penny is inserted, either by the asking of a question or by the happening of an event, then the wheels will turn and a nicely packaged opinion will emerge.

– Geoffrey Crowther, editor of The Economist (1938-1956)
