Famous quotes with Knoll

  • The world has become one big grassy knoll, crawling with lone gunmen who think they're the Warren Commission.
    Ken MacLeod
  • John F. Kennedy … murdered in Dallas by some hapless geek named Oswald who worked for either Castro, the mob, Jimmy Hoffa, the CIA, his dominatrix landlady or the odious, degenerate FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover. The list is long and crazy — maybe Marilyn Monroe's first husband fired those shots from the grassy knoll. Who knows?
