Thousands turn out as Obama urges world to 'stand as one'

That is why the greatest danger of all is to allow new walls to divide us from one another. The walls between old allies on either side of the Atlantic cannot stand. The walls between the countries with the most and those with the least cannot stand. The walls between races and tribes; natives and immigrants; Christian and Muslim and Jew cannot stand. These now are the walls we must tear down.

...

My country must stand with yours and with Europe in sending a direct message to Iran that it must abandon its nuclear ambitions.
Hey, d'you remember that Duckman episode where in the future a mom tells her young son a bedside story about the war between the sexes and how everything ends happily and then the son says, "So now we have love and respect for everyone?!" and the mom replies, "Yes, son, everyone except the Irish."

God, I miss Duckman.

Oh, wait! See - this is what happens when you keep hope alive!

Edit: Fact-checking my own jokes again.

From "Remembering Thomas Disch":

"Let's be honest, the real interest in this kind of story is to see some devastating cataclysm wipe mankind out ... My point was simply to write a book where you don't spoil that beauty and pleasure at the end."
