Second (Used To Be Third) Quote of the Day, Or: Self is on a roll !

From a Letter to the New York Times Book Review Editor (which, by the way, has “jazzed up” its stodgy-looking pages by putting all book titles in cherry red — !!), published in NYTBR of 6 May 2007:

To the Editor:

Rachel Donadio‘s report on “The Iron Archives” (April 22) laments the “re-secretization” of the former Soviet archives and refers to recent Congressional efforts to protect access provided by the Freedom of Information Act to American archives. As someone who has worked with the documents of both countries, I can attest that Washington has never “de-secretized” important historical holdings in the first place. Just this week, my appeal for some F. B. I. documents over 60 years old was rejected because they might “disclose the identitites of confidential sources.” Some questions of United States policy making that will never be resolved by Soviet archives could be answered quite easily with a reasonable relaxation of American rules. I suspect that would be a threat less to our national security than to our national mythology.

Quote of the Day: From English 1C Student Ashley G, Asked to Write an In-Class Paper on Whether or Not Marijuana Should Be Legalized

Student Paper # 5:

Wednesday, 9 May

Title: “To Weed Or Not To Weed”

Since I’m not a weed smoker, I honestly don’t care if marijuana is legalized or not. I’ve seen many people smoke weed, and the effect is drowsy idiocy. I believe medicinal benefits are important, but as we already have the Cannabis Club, I don’t think anything needs to change right now.
