QUOTES OF THE WEEK


“It’s very clear that private sector jobs have been doing fine.  It’s the public sector jobs where we’ve lost huge numbers.”
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) defending President Obama’s jobs plan.


“Those who are carrying out what is nothing less than urban guerrilla warfare are hurting the cause of people around the world.
Pierluigi Bersani,
head of Italy's Democratic Party, on the dozens of rioters in Rome who destroyed property and injured more than 100 people after breaking free from a large group of peaceful protesters.


 “I will be happy if all these prisoners are free, so that they can go back to their loved ones, their territory and their families.
Gilad Shalit, the Israeli solider who was imprisoned for five years by Hamas, in his first interview after his release in Gaza as part of an exchange for the release of more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners.


“The worst thing about Occupy Wall Street is that it’s ruining a good cause: hating Wall Street. Just when opposing Wall Street was gaining momentum, these brain-dead zombies are forcing us to choose between thieving bankers and them.”
Anne Coulter


“No society ever thrived because it had a large and growing class of parasites living off those who produce.”
Thomas Sowell


“There's not enough crime now. But it comes and goes, and there are always going to be knuckleheads stealing phones.”
Robert Weston, a Bronx man who is paid to find "fillers" to accompany the suspect in police lineups, on a slowdown in demand for his work as a recruiter.


“It was like a movie scene which they try to make as gnarly as possible.
Danica Patrick,
racecar driver, on the 15-car pileup at a Las Vegas race that killed racer Dan Wheldon.


“We started winning a little bit and literally played every game like it was the last game of our life.
Tony La Russa,
manager of the St. Louis Cardinals, after his team's 12-6 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers secured them an improbable spot in the World Series. The Cards were trailing by 10 1/2 games in the wild-card race on Aug. 25.


"St. Louis is hot.  Did they do anything wrong in this series? They outplayed us. They're a good team and they outplayed us."
Brewers manager Ron Roenicke after the Cardinals beat Milwaukee 12-6 last Sunday at Miller Park, eliminating Milwaukee from the playoffs.


"I wanted them to win so badly.”
88-year-old Brewers fan Doris White of Milwaukee who’s been going to baseball games since the days of the Braves at old County Stadium.


“The long season finally came to a close. Sure, there will be other sports to watch through the winter. The Green Bay Packers are unbeaten. So is the University of Wisconsin.

But the Brewers were something different, provided something unexpected.

They captured a lot of hearts.

For a lot of fans, the next opening day can't come here soon enough.

April 6, 2012, Miller Park, the first pitch scheduled for 3:10 p.m.

The Cardinals will be back in town.”
Bill Glauber of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
