Quotations of the day

“The captor is now the captive.” — Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty after Ariel Castro, accused of imprisoning three women in his Cleveland home and subjecting them to rapes and beatings for a decade, pleaded guilty in a deal that will keep him in prison for life.


“It was just five minutes, it followed the regular ritual of confession, but then Francis stayed and talked with us. It was all very personal. He told us that young people have the responsibility of keeping the church alive and spreading the word of Christ.” — Estefani Lescano, 21, a student from Venezuela, after the pope heard confessions from five youths in Brazil.


“Today the attorney general stated — apparently thinking he was being conciliatory — that if Edward Snowden were returned to the United States we wouldn’t kill him or torture him. Those are concessions only in the mind of someone who’s very biased.” — Bruce Fein, a lawyer representing the father of the National Security Agency leaker, criticizing U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.
