Quotations of the day
By The Associated Press
"We wanted this murderer to be executed. We were brought all the way from Afghanistan to see if justice would be served. Not our way - justice was served the American way." - Hajji Mohammad Wazir, who lost 11 family members in the attack by Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, who was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole.
"To all the women that I offended, I had no intention to be offensive, to violate any physical or emotional space. I was trying to establish personal relationships but the combination of awkwardness and hubris I think led to behavior that many found offensive." - San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, who agreed to resign in return for the city's help defending him against claims he groped, kissed and made lewd comments to 17 women.
