Oh the shark
keep the world
Oh the shark has
Oh yeah, we back!

Fresh kid T
Oh yeah, we back!
Oh the shark has

You rediscover the web. I'm napping.

My guest tonight, a very funny comedian and actor, known from
Knocked Up, Superbad

Oh the shark has
You keep the world at bay

My first kiss with Roberto on the wire
was unlike any other kiss I’ve ever had

And I’ll be strong enough to try

I know what it's like to be twenty-two, scared and in shackles too. I've been there. I hope none of you ever have to make a choice like that.

You can’t come back down and land before you shoot.

- SAWYER: What’s the answer we most want?
- HAWKING: I want to know why the universe exists...

Can’t stop, now I know who I am
Oh the shark has



Hackers confide in me all the time.
I'd go to prison before I'd betray their trust.
I didn't get Manning arrested. He got himself arrested.

I don’t pay for the meter, I remember I was-
be strong enough to
There’s still plenty of time remaining. (De-fense!)

I outed Brad Manning as an alleged leaker out of duty.
I would never, and have never,
out an ordinary decent criminal.
There’s a difference.

- HAWKING: ...and how insignificant and accidental human life is in it...

PRESIDENT MUSHARRAF MEETS WITH COMMANDER USCENTCOM: (Source: AMEMBASSY ISLAMABAD 01570, 10 April 07)

New US Central Command Commander, Admiral William J. Fallon, met March 31 with Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf. They discussed Musharraf's participation at the recent Arab League Summit. (disappointing), Musharraf's interest in engaging on Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts (as a go-between), his efforts to construct an alliance of moderate Muslim states (slow going), the situation in Iraq (Sunnis need to be given more), continuing concerns about Iran (too unpredictable), and the status of Pakistan-Afghanistan relations and a plea for better understanding of Pakistan's perspective (can't trust President Karzai).
