Meme With A Theme
Not so random quotes:
I propose to fight it out on this line, if it takes all summer.

The humblest citizen of all the land,when clad in the armour of a righteous cause, is stronger than all the hosts of Error.
-William Jennings Bryan, Speech at the National Democratic Convention, 1896
History will absolve me.
-Fidel Castro At his trial for his raid on the Moncada military barracks, 1953
I am simply a human being, more or less.
-Saul Bellow, Herzog, 1964
Hope I die before I get old.
Pete Townshend, My Generation
The trial transcript quotes Ms. Hayden as saying Murphy called
her a snitch bitch “hoe.” A “hoe,” of course, is a tool used for
weeding and gardening. We think the court reporter, unfamiliar
with rap music (perhaps thankfully so), misunderstood Hayden’s
response. We have taken the liberty of changing “hoe” to “ho,” a
staple of rap music vernacular as, for example, when Ludacris
raps “You doin’ ho activities with ho tendencies.”
- United States v. Murphy, Nos. 04-2032, 04-2293 & 04-2309 at 2, n.1.
Usual suspects: Give me six.
Everybody else, have a party.
