The Best Notable Quotables of 1988:

Cows & Dogs & Cats

"Every month a truck would come from some slaughterhouse. I had become friendly with the cows; I knew them as individuals....I first realized something was ethically wrong with the milk industry - and I was right in the middle of it. You don't really know your relationship with an animal until you're making your living off of it. But I don't think it's right to exploit animals for money, or for any reason....I want [pets] to be free of humans. I think we should have a 20-year plan to phase out breeding [dogs]. Then, after a few centuries, we can move on to cats." 
-- Washington Post columnist Colman McCarthy in The Animals' Agenda, an animal rights magazine. Thanks to Washington Times columnist John Lofton, September 16.



"As a practical matter, the homeless won't get very far unless they can persuade a Republican to break with Ronald Reagan's policies -- or elect a Democrat." 
-- Tom Mathews, Senior Editor of Newsweek, in the March 21 issue.
