"Even if you're 'stuck' with a dishonest co-worker or landlord, it doesn't follow that you have to become like them. Instead, you can simply hold them accountable for their actions by refusing to excuse them for their behavior." -- Michael Hurd, in "Don't Resent Honesty" at DrHurd.com
"With rare exceptions, [John] Lott says, 'every multiple-victim shooting has occurred in places where guns are banned, reducing the chances that a licensed gun owner would be armed and able to stop the shooter.'" -- Richard Salsman, in "To Deter Gun Slaughters, the Federal Government Must Cease Disarming the Innocents" at Forbes
"The lawsuit against Regenerative is precedent-setting, because the FDA is, in effect, applying drug manufacturing standards to the use of your own bodily cells." -- Keith Lockitch, in "Will FDA Choke off Promising Adult Stem Cell Research?" at The Daily Caller
