Quotes

"This trip will be an important opportunity as representatives of the American people to show our solidarity with the people of Israel,” Santorum said. “Our goal is to tell Israel's leaders and its people that Americans support them despite President Obama's inconsistent rhetoric and actions regarding their country.”"
"We're proud to have been a part of this very worthwhile program for the past five years," Volusia County Sheriff Ben Johnson said in a statement. "If it prevents even one violent crime or one accidental death or injury from gunfire, it will have been well worth the effort."
Maxwell quoted Lewis, who said things like "cunning, ambitious and unprincipled men," and that "the operatives involved made a mockery of the Legislature's proclaimed open and transparent process."
..."We’re extremely pleased WIHS has made this change in stabling," said Farrington, a board member of the North American Riders Group. "It makes a big difference knowing that our horses are in a safe, secure environment."
