MICHAEL BROWN, Director of FEMA, 9/6/05:

People want to lash out at me, lash out at FEMA. I think that’s fine. Just lash out, because my job is to continue to save lives.

JACK NICHOLSON, starring as Colonel Jessup in A Few Good Men:

I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago and you curse the marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: That Santiago’s death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives.
