Dueling Quotations

Conservation, Bush Administration Style

The Bush Administration is now saying we all should be conserving (lest we become cartoonish energy gluttons like the Energy Hog). CNB agrees, and thinks the President can start by cutting down on his flights to useless photo-ops. Maybe, just maybe, he could even push Congress to enact fuel economy standards that boost the current standards by 5 or 10 miles per gallon during the next five years.

"Conservation may be a sign of personal virtue, but it is not a sufficient basis for a sound, comprehensive energy policy." Vice President Dick Cheney, July 2001.

Joy in Mudville

“Bring it over here. I want to finally see what that thing looks like.”

Glen Mason, football coach of the Minnesota Golden Gophers, 10/07/05, in reference to the Little Brown Jug after Minnesota beat the Michigan Wolverines 23-20. Minnesota, despite its historically strong program (including six national championships, thank you), last beat Michigan in 1986. Mason became coach of the Gophers (currently ranked 22nd) in 1996.

Go Gophers.
