161. Thanks!
That one worked, and I appreciate it! But I must say I almost lost my lunch when I saw this:

Noonan: What do you say to those who are not especially religious, some of whom are very put off by your religious faith? What do you say so they won't be put off or frightened?

President Bush: You shouldn't fear a religious person. The Bible talks about love and compassion and to whom much has been given, much is required. That's really a lot behind my passion on AIDS policy, for example. As the President, I believe in a pluralistic society. I believe people can choose whatever religion they choose. It's not my job -- nor the government's -- to dictate religion. On the other hand, I would hope it would give people great comfort to know there's a religious person holding the office.

Bust out the hip-boots and waders, kids - it's getting deep around here! Honestly, I can't decide which emoticon to use after that - the laughing one, the crying one, the flaming one or the puking one!
