Quotes of the Day

It seems this is becoming a recurring feature... I'm not prepared to commit just yet, but am enjoying it while it lasts. First funny, second serious, both good.

"Yeah who cares what homophones say... they all sound the same anyway."
- Neat skewering of a typo in a previous comment in the discussion thread following an article on an MMA fighter's outing as a former gay porn actor.

"For while this year it may be a Catholic against whom the finger of suspicion is pointed, in other years it has been—and may someday be again—a Jew, or a Quaker, or a Unitarian, or a Baptist. It was Virginia’s harassment of Baptist preachers, for example, that led to Jefferson’s statute of religious freedom. Today, I may be the victim, but tomorrow it may be you—until the whole fabric of our harmonious society is ripped apart at a time of great national peril."
- John F. Kennedy, as quoted in a New Yorker article on Rick Santorum and the things that make Santorum puke. As with the last time I talked about Santorum, don't click the link on his name if you're at work.
