The Best Notable Quotables of 1988:

Cuban Communism

"There is, in Cuba, government intrusion into everyone's life, from the moment he is born until the day he dies. The reasoning is that the government wants to better the lives of its citizens and keep them from exploiting or hurting one another....On a sunny day in a park in the old city of Havana it is difficult to see anything that is sinister." 
-- NBC reporter Ed Rabel on Cuban life, Sunday Today, February 28.


Human Rights

"Soviet Rights Improved By 'Glasnost,' U.S. Says: Repression Eased Under Gorbachev Policy" 
-- The Washington Post, February 11

"North Korea, Cuba worst abusers of human rights" 
-- The Washington Times, same day


Oliver North

"The best favor anybody could do for Lt. Col. Oliver North would be to send him a copy of the U.S. Constitution." 
-- Mutual Broadcasting and CNN talk show host Larry King in his March 28 USA Today column.

"North's speeches are a skillful blend of showmanship and demagoguery." 
-- Newsweek White House reporter Thomas DeFrank, August 1 issue.
