Hermann von Helmholtz
Affirmative action works but we're going to need to muster all our political resources if we are to keep it in place.
I filed a brief as a friend of the court in the U. of Michigan to keep affirmative action at the U. of Michigan, which I attended the law school. And I was one of the original sponsors of making the Martin Luther King birthday a federal holiday.
Inaction may be the biggest form of action.
The place of exciting innovation - where the action is - that's Rhode Island!
Donald L. Carcieri
Women look really sexy doing action on-screen, and it is my favorite genre.
