Hey, y'all, I'm a brand new editor kicking off the comm today, so please, if there's something I'm missing or a resource that seems to be lacking, please comment and let me know so I can provide a better service to all you people, made of awesome :)

Leo: He hopes never to do it again.
C.J.: Seriously, they're laughing pretty hard.
Leo: He rode his bicycle into a tree, C.J. What do you want me to – "The president, while riding a bicycle on his vacation in Jackson Hole, came to a sudden arboreal stop." What do you want from me?
C.J.: A little love, Leo.

SAM: Why are you so bent on carrying these idiot leaflets?
BRUNO: 'Cause I am tired of working for candidates who make me think I should be embarrassed to believe what I believe, Sam. I'm tired of getting them elected. We all need some therapy, because somebody came along and said "liberal" means soft on crime, soft on drugs, soft on Communism, soft on defense, and we're gonna tax you back to the Stone Age because people shouldn't have to go to work if they don't want to. And instead of saying "Well, excuse me, you right-wing, reactionary, xenophobic, homophobic, anti-education, anti-choice, pro-gun, 'Leave it to Beaver' trip back to the Fifties," we cowered in the corner and said "Please, don't hurt me." No more. I really don't care who's right, who's wrong. We're both right. We're both wrong. Let's have two parties, huh? What do you say?

DONNA: Can I ask you a question?
WILL: Sure.
DONNA: It's going to sound a little wacky.
WILL: Go for it.
DONNA: If something had happened with us, when we were working, romantically, would that have been inappropriate?
WILL: Wow, uh... I'm flattered, but...
DONNA: Oh, no, no, no.
WILL: I'm actually seeing someone in a very nonpublic and poorly defined way.
DONNA: No, not you. I was talking about someone like you with your job in relation to me.
WILL: You're talking about Josh?
DONNA: You're seeing someone?
WILL: You're seeing Josh?
DONNA: No.
WILL: Then who?
DONNA: I'll tell you mine if you tell me yours.
WILL: Yours is Josh; you're not cryptic.
DONNA: And yours is...
WILL: Classified.
DONNA: Nothing happened with me and Josh, at all. I'm sorry. I shouldn't have brought this up. We should drop it.
WILL: Good idea. [pause] It's not inappropriate. Seeing someone, that is. It's a little weird, maybe. But you'll figure it out.

With apologies for the delay ...

MARK: Is Sam Seaborn lying?
AINSLEY: Lying's an awfully strong word...
MARK: Do you...?
AINSLEY: [finally looking up] Yes, he's lying.
SAM: I don't...
AINSLEY: [talking over him] And we should tell the truth about education.
SAM: Well, if you're gonna call...
AINSLEY: The bill contained plenty of money for new textbooks. Also computer literacy,school safety, physical plants. The difference is we wanted to give the money directly to communities, and let them decide how best to spend it, on the off-chance that the needs of Lincoln High in Dayton are different from the needs of Crenshaw High in South Central L.A.
MARK: Sam, why did the President veto the bill?
SAM: There are...
AINSLEY: [talking over him] Because it guaranteed by law that ninety-five percent of the money go directly into the classroom and bypassed the pork-barrel buffet, which is troubling to this President because he doesn't work for the students...
SAM: [quietly] Well that's just...
AINSLEY: ...and he doesn't work for the parents of the students. He works for the teacher's union.
SAM: The difference with the old...
AINSLEY: The bill contains plenty of money for textbooks, Mark, and anyone who says otherwise is flat-out lying. And we should tell the truth about textbooks. Textbooks are important, if for no other reason than they'd accurately place the town of Kirkwood in California and not in Oregon.

Following unavoidable technical difficulties, this week's newsletter is going to be delayed. One way or another, one of us will get the edition up tomorrow, and I'm sorry for any inconvenience. Feel free to berate in the comments, but I assure you I'm at least twice as frustrated at my ISP!
