Neil Gaiman "I feel that freedom of speech is an incredibly valuable thing, coming from England, which has no freedom of speech enshrined under law. … Coming out to a country where freedom of speech is actually enshrined in the Constitution is incredibly important. And I felt like somebody coming to a country in which every citizen is, at birth, handed a large gold egg, and most of them find it an embarrassment, and lose it, or hide it, or think maybe things would be better if the gold egg were taken away from everybody and put somewhere where it's not going to offend anyone. It's just weird." From Boskone 39 interview, 2002, published in "Hanging out with the Dream King; Conversations with Neil Gaiman and his Collaborators" by Joseph McCabe
