Quotes of the Morning

“Remember Bernie Kerik? The person nominated by Dubya to take over Homeland Security until a few of his little indiscretions became known? Well, here’s another one. Sure, its legal, but somehow it just seems.. dirty.”

“Former Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik accepted thousands of dollars in royalties from a book published to raise money for the families of heroes killed on Sept. 11, 2001, the Daily News has learned. Kerik contributed an 11-sentence foreword to the book of photographs, titled ‘In the Line of Duty,’ in which he praised police and firefighters who ‘desperately fought and struggled and bled and died in a noble effort.’ ‘Theirs is a story beyond words; a story of bravery, fidelity and sacrifice; a story that must never be forgotten,’ Kerik wrote. Kerik's royalties on the book have so far totaled $75,954.52, sources told The News. The deal came about when Kerik was engaged in a torrid year-long affair with the book's publisher, Judith Regan, as The News revealed in December. “

“And now.. Good news.”

“A judge ruled Monday that California's ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional, saying the state could no longer justify limiting marriage to a man and a woman. In the eagerly awaited opinion likely to be appealed to the state's highest court, San Francisco County Superior Court Judge Richard Kramer said that withholding marriage licenses from gays and lesbians is unconstitutional. ‘It appears that no rational purpose exists for limiting marriage in this state to opposite-sex partners,’ Kramer wrote.”
