From Gunner at No Quarters:
Liberty is the only thing you cannot have unless you are willing to give it to others.

From Christopher at The Kallini Brothers:
Once again we see Paris turn into the wild west due to their cowboy attitude and insane gun culture…
UPDATE: I gotta add this post by Aaron at Free Will, who brings us this great exchange between Jon Stewart and New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, via Rolling Stone.
DOWD: Your shows are like mirrors within mirrors, using a cycle of fakery to get to the truth. You've tapped into a sense in society that nothing, from reality shows to Bushworld, is real anymore. Do you guys ever get confused by your hall of mirrors?
STEWART: I didn't know we were going to have to be high to do this interview.
DOWD: Your show has thrived during the Bush administration. Will you miss it?
STEWART: I remember people used to say, "What are you gonna do when Clinton leaves?"...I'd much prefer these guys to leave than to have to continue to make Lord Vader jokes about Cheney. I have great faith in institutional absurdity.
DOWD: But wouldn't, say, a President Obama be harder to make fun of than these guys?
STEWART: Are you kidding?
