Assorted quotes

Here's another little collection of quotes to usher in the weekend.

Regina, we all need to get behind Mudflats and the article about the slaughter of bear cubs and wolf pups. This will draw more heat from the American populace than most any other Palingate. The story is now at Huffington Post, but since it is on the secondary (Politics) page, it is getting very little attention so far. I have already sent the link to WWF. This story needs to spread like wildfire. It may be emotionally based, but emotions can pay off bigtime!
