another in a continuing series of quotes provided by a guy in St. Louis -- the editor

"As far as Moses on Mount Sinai is concerned, it was either a supernatural cosmic event, which I don't believe, or a legend, which I don't believe either. Or finally, and this is very probable, an event that joined Moses and the people of Israel under the effect of narcotics." Moses was probably also on mind-altering drugs when he saw the "burning bush", suggested Shanon, who admitted to dabbling with such substances.

* Benny Shanon, professor of cognitive psychology, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, about a
study he published in Time and Mind, a journal of philosophy, that Moses dabbled in
ayahuasca tea, a hallucinogenic brew made from the bark of the acacia tree

"I want Hillary to stay in this. I want the Democrats to lose. They're in the midst of tearing themselves apart right now. It is fascinating to watch, and it's all going to stop if Hillary loses."
* Rush Limbaugh on Fox News Tuesday night March 11, '08

"If Obama wins, we are doomed."
* Rush Limbaugh on Feb. 6 show to a Republican caller

"You don't believe that Senator Obama's a Muslim?" Kroft asked Sen. Clinton.
"Of course not. I mean, that, you know, there is no basis for that. I take him on the basis of what he says. And, you know, there isn't any reason to doubt that," she replied.
"You said you'd take Senator Obama at his word that he's not*a Muslim. You don't believe that he's*," Kroft said.
"No. No, there is nothing to base that on. As far as I know."
*-- Sen. Hillary Clinton on 60 Minutes on march 3, 2008.

"I appreciate the fact that you really snatched defeat out of the jaws of those who were trying to defeat us,"
* President George W. Bush to Lt. General Ray Odierno, former commanding general of
Multinational Corps in Iraq, during a meeting in the Oval Office this week
