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.
quotes:
“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.”
