QUOTE OF THE DAY: Jim Schutze

“It’s why we can’t have protest movements in Dallas. People here are too obedient. Gay rights, black activism, Tea Party — doesn’t matter. There’s something in the water. If the mob in Tahrir Square had been made up entirely of members of the Dallas Tea Party, all Mubarek would have had to do to shut the thing down was tell them all to go sit in time-out.”

— Dallas Observer columnist Jim Schutze,
in a blog post bemoaning the timidness of Tuesday’s protests
at the Dallas County Commissioners Court meeting

QUOTE OF THE DAY: Aaron Rodgers

“Yesterday [Tuesday], I enjoyed driving on the highway with semi-trucks going 25 miles per hour, which is a new experience for me because living in Wisconsin, they actually know what to put on the roads so that you can still drive a decent speed. Down here, I guess they put sand on the roads. They might need to revise that a little bit.”
