Truly Patriotic Quote of the Day

"In this time when a citizenry applauds the liberation of a country as it lives in fear of its own freedom, when an administration official releases an attack ad questioning the patriotism of a legless Vietnam veteran running for Congress, when people all over the country fear reprisal if they use their right to free speech, it is time to get angry. It is time to get fierce."

- Tim Robbins, from a speech he gave at the National Press Club after the Baseball Hall of Fame cancelled a celebration for the 15th anniversary of "Bull Durham" because of the anti-war stance taken by Robbins and his wife/co-star, Susan Sarandon.
