Other people saying things

"Spare us the invocations of 'black-on-black crime.' I will not respect the lie. I would rather be thought insane."

"The stench from your houses of worship is wafting its way across this country, polluting citizenship, demoralizing parents and families, mocking accountability and blaspheming the Holy God whom you say you love and worship.  If that offends you, try reading Amos."

"When I remember that Bill Gothard had successfully weathered a sexual abuse scandal even before I was born, I despair of things changing."

"Sorkin’s view is common and sounds logical—if heroin is a scourge, then the only solution is to get rid of it. As a medical matter and a matter of policy, though, he’s tragically mistaken."

"This was one of the motivations for the ACA. It is a feature, not a bug. There are a lot of people who would prefer not to work and would not work if they had some other way to get health care insurance."

"If this is the best AFP can do, does that mean that no one is truly being harmed by Obamacare?"

"Last month was one of the warmest Januaries ever. No, really."

"We’re talking about a piece aimed at golf readers. So we’re talking about a mostly white, mostly older, mostly male audience that wound up reading a story that reinforced several negative stereotypes about trans people."

"I’m fluent in the symptoms of preeclampsia and asthma and appendicitis. I play a mom whose baby has blue lips."

"When it comes to how decision-makers make decisions basically unrelated to their own ambitions, House of Cards has nothing to say—and it knows it."

"I think the easiest nut to crack might be those last few lines: TYAGFPFG, TAGFLTMPAAT. If we assume 'Thank you Almighty God for...' then we can maybe puzzle out what PFG and LTMPAAT were based on what you know about her life."

"Anyone with dietary restrictions—be it vegan, vegetarian, a shellfish allergy, or perhaps a low sodium or gluten-free diet—knows that there are two types of servers in restaurants."
