Notable Quotables From 2005

We're All The Same
"Andrea, what would it all matter if proven true? Someone brought up today the first several U.S. Presidents were certainly revolutionaries and might have been called terrorists at the time by the British Crown, after all."

- Boston Globe movie critic Ty Burr
