If you're killed, you've lost a very important part of your life." -Brooke Shields, during an interview to become a spokesperson for a federal anti-smoking campaign "Outside of the killings, Washington has one of the lowest crime rates in the country." -Mayor Marion Barry, Washington, D.C. "Hawaii has always been a very pivotal role in the Pacific. It is in the Pacific. It is a part of the United States that is an island that is right here." -former Vice President Dan Quayle "Nobody in football should be called a genius. A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein." -Joe Theismann, former NFL football quarterback and sports analyst
