A Few Words from Claire

I don't usually read the TD's Michael Paul Williams, but in a comment below, my good friend and Sorensen partner-in-crime Claire Ward pointed out that Williams interviewed her on the Marriage Amendment.

How to characterize it? Well, here's a sample:

"Virginia has a long and rich history of doing really stupid things: The eugenics laws. The miscegenation laws. The poll tax. A long and rich history of just being stupidly mean-spirited," said Ward, a project manager for a Richmond-based Fortune 500 company.

"I would hope people would have learned by that. But we just keep doing it time and time again. It's really cause for wonder, don't you think?"

Yes it is.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns

"Don't pretend that you know me...cause I don't even know myself" -- The Who
