Quote of the Year

There was really no contest this year.

On the death of the young Iranian woman Neda Agha-Soltan during the protests in June:

I finally looked at her picture, and she looked familiar somehow. I think we have a statue of her in the harbor at New York. Delacroix caught a glimpse of her once on a barricade in Paris. She carried water to the cannon crews at Monmouth, and drove a chariot at Watling Street. She cut off Holophernes’ head.

She will be missed, but she will be back. She’s that kind of girl.
