  The New York Times > Movies > Movies News and Features > Youth Who Like Films Rated R, but Not Chaperones, Get a Card: "Mrs. Needham, whose grandson turns 18 this summer, said she did not worry that he would say he was seeing an action picture, then instead slip into one with sexual content. 'He's really not interested in girls yet, he's caught up in all this,' she confided. "

ugh, how embarassing is that?

“A person today who knows horses, really knows them, understands more about what it meant in the past to be human than the most knowledgeable historian.”

  To Put a Fine Point on It - Which pens are best? By YiLing�Chen-Josephson: "Teacher's pets
Capped models make better hair clips (the discreet all-black Sanford Uniball goes with any outfit) because you don't have to worry about pushing down the pen point and marking up your scalp. The Bic Round Stic cap, meanwhile, tastes the best to me, which is to say the least conspicuously like treated plastic. But, as we all know, you really shouldn't chew your pens. "

  The New York Times > Opinion > Op-Ed Columnist: Level With Americans: ". Almost the entire burden of the war has been loaded onto the backs of a brave but tiny segment of the population � the men and women, most of them from working-class families, who enlisted in the armed forces for a variety of reasons, from patriotism to a desire to further their education to the need for a job."

Hell yes.  
  The New York Times > Opinion > Op-Ed Columnist: The Tiananmen Victory: "It's often said that an impoverished, poorly educated, agrarian country like China cannot sustain democracy. Yet my most powerful memory of that night 15 years ago is of the peasants who had come to Beijing to work as rickshaw drivers.
During each lull in the firing, we could see the injured, caught in a no-man's-land between us and the troops. We wanted to rescue them but didn't have the guts. While most of us in the crowd cowered and sought cover, it was those uneducated rickshaw drivers who pedaled out directly toward the troops to pick up the bodies of the dead and wounded.
Some of the rickshaw drivers were shot, but the rest saved many, many lives that night, rushing the wounded to hospitals as tears streamed down their cheeks. It would be churlish to point out that such people are ill-prepared for democracy, when they risked their lives for it. " 
  The New York Times > Opinion > Op-Ed Columnist: The Tiananmen Victory: "Lies written in ink can never disguise facts written in blood"

A good campaign slogan for kerry perhaps?  
Just a list of interesting things I read online that my friends and family might be interested in.
