In my own words, I played some significant part in changing the social-sexual values of our time. I had a lot of fun in the process.
The obvious types of American fascists are dealt with on the air and in the press. These demagogues and stooges are fronts for others. Dangerous as these people may be, they are not so significant as thousands of other people who have never been mentioned.
Henry A. Wallace

Liberty Hyde Bailey

Our adversaries - our Democratic adversaries - like to be able to portray the Republican Party as a bunch of wingnuts - narrow based, always have some agenda that's not attractive to the public...

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
