Communism is a hateful thing, and a menace to peace and organized government.
I have to say, if someone literally said to me, 'You're going off to a desert island, what is the one thing you would bring?' I would say, 'It's my concealer or you can just kill me now.' I've thought this through! Because I would find, like, berries in a bowl and make blush.
If a university official's letter accusing a speaker of having a proclivity to commit speech crimes before she's given the speech - which then leads to Facebook postings demanding that Ann Coulter be hurt, a massive riot and a police-ordered cancellation of the speech - is not hate speech, then there is no such thing as hate speech.
Don't ever forget that a small group of thoughtful people can change the world, it's the only thing that ever has.
The best thing about baseball is there's no homework.
I think the most wonderful thing in the world is another chef. I'm always excited about learning new things about food.
I don't really do that whole 'single life' thing. I'm kind of heads down and get things done.

The thing with pretending you're in a good mood is that sometimes you can.

Those who want to be serious photographers, you're really going to have to edit your work. You're going to have to understand what you're doing. You're going to have to not just shoot, shoot, shoot. To stop and look at your work is the most important thing you can do.
