Ink by the barrel

Posted by Ward on February 19, 2005

A wise man once advised me to 'never get into a public argument with anyone who buys ink by the barrel'--- or paper by the trainload!. I can't find an origin for this wise advice, even though I've heard it a great number of times in my career. Any help?
