> Is there a way for a variable to escape quotation marks? For example:
> print "The husband only had $x minutes to live before his wife,...
Use some variant of %-formatting, e.g.
print """The husband only had %s minutes to live before his wife, in a rage
of fury and wrath, would descend upon him like a thousand, shrieking
banshees, to rend his life (not to mention his manhood) from his cowering
body.""" % x
Note also the use of """ (triple quotes), because that allows the
string literal to span multiple lines.
