Random Quote

We write to expose the unexposed. If there is one door in the castle you have been told not to go through, you must. Otherwise, you're just be rearranging the furniture in rooms you've already been in. Most human beings are dedicated to keeping that one door shut. But the writer's job is to see what's behind it, too see the bleak unspeakable stuff, and to turn the unspeakable into words - not just any words, but if we can, into rhythm and blues.

America

 

Eight years later, in spite of physical and cultural attacks from outside and inside, America remains America.

Eight years from now, it will remain America, because I believe mankind's innate craving for freedom will ultimately carry the day.

People, in America, have a right to conduct their business and their lives in a manner they choose for themselves, just as the people at the World Trade Center eight years ago had the right to go about their lives without interference from a bunch of people who wanted to insist that others live according to their beliefs. From their desire to force their beliefs on others, they murdered so many people. Those murderers didn't believe in individual freedom.

I believe it is our obligation to disassociate with those who don't believe in freedom, whether those people live outside the United States or inside the United States. Otherwise, we legitimize their pursuit to coerce others against their will, and in so doing, we make ourselves part of the problem.
