Quote of the day: Jack Valenti

In honor of the PIPA/SOPA boycott, our first quote of the day is from Jack Valenti, head of the MPAA, in 1982:

“I say to you that the VCR is to the American film producer and the American public as the Boston strangler is to the woman home alone.”

Yep. The VCR came out, and nobody ever went to the theater again.
