"The breakdown is $1.2 million over 20 years per team. What is that, a third of the average salary? There is no penalty there. It's pocket change." -- Former Minnesota Viking Brent Boyd on the NFL's $765 million settlement with victims of concussion-related brain injuries.
"It's both bizarre and racist that Dunkin' Donuts thinks that it must color a woman's skin black and accentuate her lips with bright pink lipstick to sell a chocolate doughnut." -- Phil Robertson, deputy Asia director for Human Rights Watch, on the controversy surrounding an ad, which was later pulled, for a new "Charcoal Donut" in Thailand.
