    Default Say What?

    9/17/94 Alabama's Heather Whitestone is selected as Miss America 1995 and was asked the question: "If you could live forever, would you and why?" Her answer: "I would not live forever, because we should not live forever, because if we were supposed to live forever then we would live forever, but we cannot live forever, which is why I would not live forever."

    "Whenever I watch TV and see those poor starving kids all over the world, I can't help but cry. I mean, I'd love to be skinny like that, but not with all those flies and death and stuff." -Mariah Carey

    "Smoking kills. If you're killed, you've lost a very important part of your life." -Brooke Shields

    "I've never had major knee surgery on any other part of my body." -Winston Bennett, University of Kentucky basketball player

    "Outside of the killings, Washington has one of the lowest crime rates in the country." -Mayor Marion Barry

    "Half this game is ninety percent mental." Philadelphia Philly's manager, Danny Ozark

    "It isn't pollution that's harming the environment, it's all the impurities in our air ans water that are doing it."
    AND
    "We are ready for an unforeseen event that may or may not occur." -VP Al GOre

    "We've got to pause and ask oursevles: How much clean air do we really need?" -Lee Iacocca

    "We don't necessarily discriminate. We simply exclude certain types of people." ROTC Instructor Col. Gerald Wellman

    "If we don't succeed, we run the risk of failure." President Bill Clinton

    "Traditionally, most of Austalia's imports come from overseas." -Keppel Enderberry

    And my favorite is:
    "Your food stamps will be stopped effective March because we received notice that you passed away. May God bless you. You may reapply if there is a change in your circumstances." -Department of Social Services, Greenville, S.C.
