This "Quotations of the day" was the top news story on my computer screen when I powered up this morning. I clicked on it, fully expecting so see your typical "inspirational, thought-provoking, humorous, literary, and special occasion" quotes. (The "AP" was not part of the headline.)

Is this a new "service" that the AP is providing?

Has anyone else noticed this on their home pages?

I have never seen this until today. At first I thought this was a new section just on my ATT home page until I googled AP Quotations of the Day and saw that Yahoo and others have it also.

Very interesting.........
