"We're horse and buggy. The Jewish community has focused all of its attention in the past on print and print media. We are the people of the book. The Catholics have always beat the Jews."
           -- Rabbi Mark Golub of Shalom TV about Catholic TV using 3-D on its network
"Our position is thoroughly identified with the institution of slavery — the greatest material interest of the world. Its labor supplies the product, which constitutes by far the largest and most important portions of commerce of the earth. These products are peculiar to the climate verging on the tropical regions, and by an imperious law of nature, none but the black race can bear exposure to the tropical sun. These products have become necessities of the world, and a blow at slavery is a blow at commerce and civilization."

and a couple from the archives:
“But the man who can most truly be accounted brave is he who best knows the meaning of what is sweet in life and of what is terrible, and then goes out undeterred to meet what is to come.”
                                                                  --- Pericles (495-429 B.C.)
"Thus that which is the most awful of evils, death, is nothing to us, since when we exist there is no death, and when there is death, we do not exist."
                        --- Epicurus (341-270 B.C.)
