@hamburger,
great quote Hamburger but it is an "M" and not an "A". It is the author in alphabetical order, not the quote. (I missed that on my first post on this thread too though.)

A - Hank Aaron

Didn't come up here to read. Came up here to hit.

Believe me, my dear fellow, that so long as people refuse to give up everything for the sake of which they attack and devour each other on earth, that so long as they refuse to think of putting their spiritual fortune in order, there will be no fair distribution of earthly fortunes, either.

@Dutchy,
I'm not trying to convince you that you should like what Larry Flynt does. I don't like what Larry Flynt does. But, what I do like is that I live in a country where you and I can make that decision for ourselves. I like that I live in a country where I can pick up Hustler magazine and read it if I want to, or throw it in the garbage can if that's where I think it belongs. Or, better yet, I can exercise my opinion and not buy it. I like that I have that right. I care about it. And, you should care about it too.
