Quotations of the day

By The Associated Press

"It's too bad common sense policy has to be dictated in this manner. New conduct rules are necessary to preventing more shenanigans from happening in the future, and whether these are the best, and most cost effective, rules to stop future misconduct remains to be seen." - Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, after the Secret Service tightened conduct rules following an embarrassing prostitution scandal.


"I just feel like to have a plane fly that low over the Hudson, right past New York City, and to have everyone cheering and excited about it, shows that we don't have fear, that we have a sense of `This is ours.'" - Jennifer Patton, a tourist from Canton, Ohio, after a modified jumbo jet carrying the space shuttle Enterprise did a low flyover over Manhattan en route to its eventual new home aboard the USS Intrepid.


"To think that there's a bureaucrat in the United States Army that would consider the use or abuse of First Amendment rights in determining who is going to perform at an Army base is an insult and defiles the sacrifices of those heroes who fought for the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights." - Rocker Ted Nugent, whose planned June concert at Fort Knox, Ky., was canceled over his critical comments about President Barack Obama.
