"While I've always been critical about this peddling of spiritual materialism, it wasn't until I went to Nepal that I came face-to-face with my own spiritual materialism.

And at that point, you have to ask the question, - which U.S. industry will suffer because the Canadians retaliated against it?" - Donald Trump

"Las Vegas does have its fair share of males in the business. But the male sex trade is often more underground.

"OK, so here's the deal. First of all, "The Wall Street Journal" was bought for $5 billion. It's now worth $500 million, OK. They don't have to tell me what to do.

When Ford moves their massive plant to Mexico, we get nothing. We lose all of these jobs." - Donald Trump

"I'm convinced after spending three weeks in China and Tibet, unless the United States gets its act together, our grandchildren will be living in a world dominated by the People's Republic.

It is relentless in advancing its national interests." - Mort Kondracke

"Book culture has also become something that's kind of incredible to younger people now, because of the Internet. If you go to any of the book fairs - PS1 or the MOCA Book Fair - none of the people are over the age of 40 years old there, and they trade and buy books, because they're almost antiquities at this point. They're not really important, in a way, because the Internet is how information is taken in." - Jim Walrod
