Staying the Course

“However flawed the case for invading Iraq may have been, the premature withdrawal of U.S. military forces would not only be a humiliating defeat for the United States but a betrayal of the hopes of the Iraqi people….”

— “Staying the Course,” editorial in America, the Jesuit weekly, Nov. 24, 2003

“…all means to prevent procreation are illicit. This includes temporary or permanent sterilization, chemicals (like birth control pills or foams), mechanical devices (like the condom or diaphragm) or premature withdrawal.”

— “The Wisdom of Humanae Vitae,” by Father Jay Scott Newman

“This is a perfect example of what my father calls ‘thinking with your dick.’ “

Susanna Moore, author of In the Cut

Today’s birthday: Meg Ryan, star of the film version of In the Cut.
