Under the Dome - Stephen King

Stephen King at almost his best, dissecting the human psyche when faced with weird/strange/scary i.e. rapid dogs, plagues, aliens, Kathy Bates. The premiere of Under the Dome is scheduled for Monday June 24th on CBS.
“She can’t help it,’ he said. ‘She’s got the soul of a poet and the emotional makeup of a junkyard dog.”

“If you can’t laugh when things go bad–laugh and put on a little carnival–then you’re either dead or wishing you were.”

“She is a cat with a burning tail, an ant under a microscope, a fly about to lose its wings to the curious plucking fingers of a third-grader on a rainy day, a game for bored children with no bodies and the whole universe at their feet.”

“The top drawer was locked, but I forced it open. You know what else was in there, Sanders? Some of the skankiest jerk-off material I have ever seen.”
“Kids?” Andy asked. He wouldn’t be surprised. When the devil got a preacher, he was apt to fall low, indeed. Low enough to put on a tophat and crawl under a rattlesnake.
“Worse, Sanders.” He lowered his voice. “Orientals.”
