Quotations of the day
By The Associated Press
"This was an unprovoked attack. The pig was posing no threat to anybody. It was just brutal." - Effingham County Sheriff's Office spokesman David Ehsanipoor, speaking about an incident in which a man unleashed his pit bulls on his neighbors' pet pig and stabbed it 23 times.
"I'm not saying take a burro and have it loaded down with supplies. But what I am saying is think it through. If you're going for just an hour, you want a full bottle of water. And you don't want to take a sip and leave it in the car because you don't want to carry it with you. Bring the bottle." - Ron Silverman, senior director of the Sierra Club's Angeles chapter, speaking about the dangers faced by inexperienced hikers like the two recently rescued from a California forest.
