"You made six 'Police Academies' but you can't make one 'Passion of the Christ!' "
- Academy Awards host Chris Rock chiding Hollywood in his opening monologue last night for its reluctance to fund Mel Gibson’s film about Jesus [EDITOR’S NOTE: Didn’t watch the Oscars; didn’t care. But we’re glad a non-liberal like Clint Eastwood won. Just goes to show that in America, people CAN overcome their handicaps!]
Considering the tremendous drop in first-class mail volume due to cheap long distance rates and the internet, how many days a week does the post office need to deliver residential mail these days?

“America's high schools are obsolete. By obsolete, I don't mean our high schools are broken, flawed and underfunded, though a case could be made for every one of those points. By obsolete, I mean that our high schools, even when they're working exactly as designed, cannot teach all our kids what they need to know today."

IS THIS ASKING TOO MUCH?
“(Congress) should also require that legal immigrants be fully assimilated into American culture. This means they would have to learn U.S. history and the English language to pass a citizenship test.”
- Columnist Cal Thomas
“Before last year's election, Congress passed a Medicare drug entitlement that was outrageously, irresponsibly expensive - a budget breaker, an economy stopper - but while many in Congress admit as much, they claim innocence for their errant votes. Their whine is that George W. Bush made them do it, and Bush does have a lot to answer for in this act of fiscal mayhem - political fraud and abandonment of principle, for starters.
“But he no more tricked Congress, as some members allege, than a bear tricks a trapper into snagging him. Congress, which is supposed to be a check on the executive, checked nothing: It prodded Bush into this mess and has since sought sanctuary through flimsy excuses that verge on being lies.”
- Columnist Jay Ambrose
FAMOUS LAST WORDS
“I would remind you that extremism in defense of liberty is no vice. And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.”
- Barry Goldwater
"Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice."
