My oft-repeated (some might say too oft) point about the absurdity – indeed wickedness – of labelling children with the religion of their parents (“Would you speak of a ‘Postmodernist child’, or a ‘Gramscian Marxist child’?”) is usually effective. People nearly always get the point immediately, although whether their future consciousness is raised to the point of actually wincing, as I do, whenever they hear ‘Catholic child’ or ‘Muslim child’ is another matter.

“We succeeded in taking that picture, and, if you look at it, you see a dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever lived, lived out their lives.

The aggregate of all our joys and sufferings, thousands of confident religions, ideologies and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilizations, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every hopeful child, every mother and father, every inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every superstar, every supreme leader, every saint and sinner in the history of our species, lived there — on a mote of dust, suspended in a sunbeam.

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of the dot on scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner of the dot. How frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light . . .

To my mind, there is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly and compassionately with one another and to preserve and cherish that pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.”

— Carl Sagan, speech at Cornell University, October 13, 1994

I’m assuming Pelosi isn’t a Jewish name, right? It sounds Italian but I’m bad that way. Anyhoo … give me a shout back and let’s get the dialogue going!!— Rob Long, National Review, 20 Nov. 2006

Anyhoo. These divers saved a shark.— Kathie Lee Gifford, NBC News Transcripts, 4 Mar. 2010

… moving with the animated dash peculiar to the quickie films of the time, snapping such lines as “Say, what’s the big idea, anyhoo?”— Diane Werts, Newsday, 21 July 1991

Speaking of blonds with ambition, check out the latest from Tara Reid. You remember her—party girl, sometimes does a little acting. Anywho, she’s looking into other ventures, just like Miss Paris H.— Jan Uebelherr, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 29 Aug. 2008
