Quote of the Day

"Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf."
-- From the Mudville Gazette

David of Third World County points out that this is George Orwell speaking above.

That was said by George Orwell, writing, for once, as hinself: Eric Arthur Blair. IIRC, the "Good people" is a later redaction of the simpler "People."

Another good quote for the day:

"If you wanted to reduce crime, you could -- if that were your sole purpose -- you could abort every black baby in this country and your crime rate would go down. That would be an impossibly ridiculous and morally reprehensible thing to do, but your crime rate would go down," said Conservative butt boy William Bennett the other day - Bennett held prominent posts in the administrations of former presidents Ronald Reagan and George Bush.
