Bio: Daniel Webster was a leading American statesman and senator from Massachusetts during the period leading up to the Civil War.

Quote of the day

Take your cigarette from its holder, And burn your initials in my shoulder. Fracture my spine, And swear that you're mine, As we dance to the Masochism Tango.
