No. 20: The ‘Cat that sunk Pittsburgh

East Regional finals, March 28, 2009 — The Panthers were trying for their first Final Four berth since 1941, but Scottie Reynolds’ mad dash to the hoop ended those dreams. Dante Cunningham received the in-bounds pass, but dished it to a sprinting Reyolds, who went nearly the entire length of the court and into the lane, where he hit an off-balance jumper for the 78-76 win.


The funny thing is Pitt went down again yesterday early in the NCAA Tournament and this time by one point to Butler. I will be surprised if Arkansas does not go after Butler’s coach this year.

Reagan quotes


The taxpayer – that’s someone who works for the federal government but doesn’t have to take a civil-service exam.

Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Millions of individuals making their own decisions in the marketplace will always allocate resources better than any centralized government planning process.

How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.

If I could paraphrase a well-known statement by Will Rogers that he never met a man he didn’t like – I’m afraid we have some people around here who never met a tax they didn’t like.

Welfare’s purpose should be to eliminate, as far as possible, the need for its own existence.

The size of the federal budget is not an appropriate barometer of social conscience or charitable concern.

We don’t have a trillion-dollar debt because we haven’t taxed enough; we have a trillion-dollar debt because we spend too much.

President Reagan drafts his address to the nation after an Oct. 23, 1983, terrorist attack on the U.S. Marine headquarters in Beirut killed 241 service members.
