"This is one of those experiences that I want to see firsthand. I want to see the faces of the justices. I want to hear their questions." — Kate Kendell, the executive director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights in California, who contacted a line-standing service to secure her space for the Supreme Court's hearings on gay marriage.


"A hard worker, like all of us here. We all get up in the morning and go to work." — Richard Delgado on his New Jersey neighbor Pedro Quezada, winner of a $338 million Powerball jackpot.


"We want everyone who hears Tom's story to know that he lived his life believing in redemption, in the ability of the human heart to be changed. He would want justice certainly but moreover he'd want forgiveness. Our family prays for the family of the man who took Tom's life and we will pray for forgiveness in our own hearts and our own peace." — Lisa Clements, wife of Colorado corrections chief Tom Clements, who was shot to death at his front door last week.
