    but as well-written as it is it still basically says "It's very subjective" and "I know it when I see it"...

    Of course, the main thing is usage, i.e. how is this being used?  I think if you took a quote from someone and stuck it on the back of your book without their permission, that wouldn't be considered fair use.  But to use that same quote to illustrate a point or to parody the writer, that is fair use.

    Grandpa Simpson is a cartoon character...John McCain is an actual person...
