“The nature of catastophic risks is that you can’t even begin to measure them. There’s no pattern of past nuclear attacks from which to derive the chances of another one, so nobody can know what the right level of response is.” --Sebastian Mallaby, Washington Post

You unpacked it and plugged it in and turned it on and fiddled with the knobs and…you’re just now starting to read the instructions, right??? We might as well just break these devices right at the factory before we ship them out, you know that?" — Dave Barry, Read This First!

But if intelligence mistakes are inevitable, is it better to worry too much about potential threats or to worry too little?  Worrying too much -- if that's what happened -- resulted in the toppling of one of the planet's most murderous tyrants.  Worrying too little resulted in 9/11. “

 --Jeff Jacoby, syndicated columnist for The Boston Globe

"If you look back on the 60s and think there was more good than harm, you're probably a Democrat. If you think there was more harm than good, you're probably a Republican."

--Former President Bill Clinton

“If you’re listening to a rock star in order to get information on who to vote for, you’re a bigger moron than they are. Why are we rock stars? Because we’re morons. We sleep all day, we play music at night and very rarely do we sit around reading the Washington Journal.”

–Alice Cooper (Vincent Damon Furnier)

"But there are two higher qualities which [the pilot] also must have. He must have good and quick judgment and decision, and a cool, calm courage that no peril can shake."

— Mark Twain
