Interesting News from Elsewhere

It’s all quotes this week:

  • “Remember when many Democrats were horrified (or at least when they purported to be) at the idea that Bush was merely eavesdropping on American citizens without judicial approval?  Shouldn’t we be at least as concerned about the President’s being able to assassinate Americans without judicial oversight?” – Glenn Greenwald
  • “I think the best thing that happened to the education system in New Orleans was Hurricane Katrina.” – Arne Duncan
  • The man (along with Glenn Beck and others in the right-wing talk radio circuit) is a jackass and a lout.” – Harold Pollack
  • “Pretty much the whole political world has been buzzing about this. But so far, nothing has come of it.” – Elizabeth Benjamin

Apparently, there is some kind of sporting event this weekend that people are all excited about.

Go Saints!
