In 1934 the American Jewish charities offered to find homes for 300 German refugee children. We were on the SS Washington bound for New York Christmas 1934.
A study in the Washington Post says that women have better verbal skills than men. I just want to say to the authors of that study: 'Duh.'
To avoid entangling alliances has been a maxim of our policy ever since the days of Washington and its wisdom no one will attempt to dispute.
As you may recall Truman was extremely unpopular when he finally left Washington in 1953 thanks largely to the Korean War. Today however he is thought to have been a solidly good president a 'Near Great' even in the terminology of those surveys of historians they do every now and then.
A gaffe in Washington is someone telling the truth and telling the truth has never hurt me.
I intend to travel to Okinawa and to visit with Okinawa officials and the citizens of Okinawa at an early date. I will send my best analysis of that situation including the local attitudes back to Washington to the government there.
Everywhere I travel throughout Eastern Washington I hear from people demanding we do a better job of controlling our borders and reducing illegal immigration.
If you look - look at - I mean look at what's going on with your gasoline prices. They're going to go to $5 $6 $7 and we don't have anybody in Washington that calls OPEC and says 'Fellas it's time. It's over. You're not going to do it anymore.'
The Sunday School teacher talked too much in the way our grade school teacher used to when she told us about George Washington. Pleasant pretty stories but not true.
Nothing symbolizes American strength and vigor more than another unaccountable Washington bureaucrat.
The strength of America is not in Washington.
You know we don't look much alike but Denzel Washington would make a great sports agent.
We've established a Washington State Academy of Sciences that will enable us to make decisions based on science about what is right for our state meaning the quality of our lives will get better.
One hardly knows where in the history of science to look for an important movement that had its effective start in so pure and simple an accident as that which led to the building of the great Washington telescope and went on to the discovery of the satellites of Mars.
It's a sad indication of where Washington has come where policy differences almost necessarily become questions of integrity. I came to Washington in the late '70s and people had the ability in the past to have intense policy differences but didn't feel the need to question the other person's character.
The president we have today is a typical Washington politician that's prone to hyperbole and decisiveness and false outrage. And I think it's very sad - very sad to watch.
We saw what happened in Jimmy Carter's administration. President Carter was a good man with the best of intentions. But he came to Washington without a good working relationship with Democratic members of Congress which played a big part in his administration's problems.
But even after the first week when Hart got out of the presidential race because of the Washington Post's threat to reveal a long-term relationship Hart had apparently been having with a prominent Washington woman the media continued to embellish my past.
You know what's funny is that I have this ongoing relationship with the city of Washington D.C. I went to George Washington University and my nickname was K-Dub - based on G-Dub - and I'm now on the board of trustees at George Washington University.
I was able to do The Saint of Fort Washington on the relationship between two homeless men.
It seems to me the Washington Monument is a symbol of America's power. It has been the symbol of our great nation. We look at the symbol and we say 'this is one nation under God.'
The real rulers in Washington are invisible and exercise power from behind the scenes.
Washington State has a strong tradition of a positive relationship - positive working relationship between labor and management whether in the private sector or the public sector. It needs to continue to be that way.
Living in Washington you can't take politics too seriously. I draw the line at honesty. I have no time for political hacks who say things they don't believe because they get paid to.
