Quotations in the News
"When it's man-made and when it was done with venom and when it was done intentionally, it is, in my mind, the prime example of political pettiness." -- Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich, after documents surfaced suggesting that an aide to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie engineered traffic jams in Sokolich's town to punish him for not endorsing Christie's re-election.
"I want to apologize. I take full responsibility for my actions. It had been a very stressful day. Some of my teammates were leaving because of pressure from their families and business associates. My dreams of basketball diplomacy was quickly falling apart. I had been drinking. It's not an excuse but by the time the interview happened I was upset. I was overwhelmed." -- Dennis Rodman, apologizing for disparaging comments to CNN about North Korean-held American missionary Kenneth Bae.
"Over the last year, doing a couple of charity events with Hall of Famers that are in, they've got a strong stance against anyone who's taken steroids. They do not want them in. They don't care when they started or when they did it, they do not want them in. I've got to take the right stance, too. No, they shouldn't get in. There shouldn't be cheating allowed to get into the Hall of Fame." -- Former Chicago White Sox slugger Frank Thomas, after his election to baseball's Hall of Fame.
