Friday Short Cuts

Insight: “If a blending of individualism and of cooperative participation is a prerequisite to a democratic solution of the problems of a society of free men, it must also be noted that an atmosphere of freedom is required if these problems are to be met constructively and as they arise.” —Marshall Field (1835-1906)

Upright: “[J]ournalists need a refresher course on the plain meaning of English words. Breaking windows, stealing cigarettes, Red Bull and drugs, attacking journalists and other innocent bystanders is not a protest. That is a riot. It has no relationship whatsoever to a black police officer shooting an armed black man. But most media continued to refer to the violence as ‘protests.’” —Gary Bauer

Change: “I long for the day when a majority of Americans and a substantial percentage of minorities finally decide that liberals will no longer get a pass from minorities because of their allegedly good intentions when decades of abominable results scream otherwise.” —David Limbaugh

Non Compos Mentis: “I think the most important part is the contrast in [Keith Scott] having a book versus a gun. But in my mind and in most of the [Charlotte] community’s mind, it really doesn’t matter if he had a gun.” —NAACP’s Corine Mack (A gun makes all the difference.)

Village Idiots: “[I]t’s not only terrorists we need to be worried about. Terrorism is part of it, but gun violence kills 33,000 Americans a year.” —Hillary Clinton

Belly laugh of the week: “For all the challenges and threats we face as a nation … no threat is more terrifying in its global reach or more potentially destructive and destabilizing than climate change.” —Susan Rice and Brian Deese

Late-night humor: “House Speaker Paul Ryan was at the airport and didn’t recognize a three-year congresswoman from Massachusetts. And even asked her, ‘So what do you do?’ Ryan realized she was a congresswoman when she answered, ‘Nothing.’” —Jimmy Fallon
