There was no incentive to make it economical or commercially feasible.

I think we kind of ran out of gas and panicked a little. I should have probably taken a time out, had the kids relax and settle them down. But it just didn't happen and it turned into a free-throw game after that.

I'm staying out of it, ... I couldn't give a shit. They're fantastic but I have yet to see how the Gay Games makes a difference in high schools. I'm not calling the Federation of Gay Games negligent, they just are what they are. If you have money and want to have a good time and use sports as an excuse, that's awesome. They offer a safe venue for post-collegiate gay athletes. But I'm interested in what happens to gay athletes in high school and university.
That is one of our concerns. Through an earmark . . . if Congress says we're allocated 10 million for a widening project in Goodyear, it is no longer subject to our prioritization.
A new hero is created when a spaceflight is launched, ... I want to create more private-space-travel heroes in China.

Mr. Fulton thought there was more in the horse than what we had seen the last two or three races. That's why we switched. I've known John for a long time and I know the kind of horseman he is and the kind of hands-on operation that he runs.
It has been a great situation down there for him. The decision was made easier because Kyle has always been a responsible child. He has always been organized - a little abnormal that way. He's very mature. I hate to say anything that would condemn my other children, but I don't think I could do that with the other two. He's a pretty 'with-it' kid.

We applaud Greg for his dedication to this mission, but also his drive to encourage young people to study science, math and astronomy by giving a first-hand description of the wonders of space.

Once the price is above 100,000, it's for the elite affluent, ... But if someone is offering flights right away and everyone else is talking about flying in five or six years, they'll be able to charge a big premium. People aren't going to want to wait.
