  • This is a great day for France!  President Richard Nixon, while attending Charles De Gaulle’s funeral
  • Things are more like they are now than they have ever been.  President Gerald Ford
  • Capital punishment is our society’s recognition of the sanctity of human life. Orrin Hatch, Senator from Utah, explaining his support of the death penalty
  • My fellow astronauts…  Vice-President Dan Quayle, beginning a speech at an Apollo 11 anniversary celebration
  • Outside of the killings, Washington D.C. has one of the lowest crime rates in the country.  Mayor Marion Barry, Washington D.C.
  • We found the term ‘killing’ too broad.  State Department spokesperson on why the word ‘killing’ was replaced with ‘unlawful or arbitrary deprivation of life’ in its human rights reports for 1984-5
  • The exports include thumbscrews and cattle prods, just routine items for the police.  U.S. Commerce Department spokesman on a regulation allowing the export of various products abroad
