  1. Joe Biden:

    They hate that worldview because it's a challenge to their worldview of dominion, religious faith is a natural check on their power – and Christianity specifically is that – so if you're a Christian conservative – holy smokes, you, on a gut-level, feel threatened.

  2. Gillian Giannetti:

    This is tremendous news for West Virginia, West Virginia, and North Carolinians who deserve clean air, safe water and protection from climate change, as they abandon this dirty pipe dream, Dominion and Duke should now pivot to investing more in energy efficiency, wind and solar -- that's how to provide jobs and a better future for all.

  3. The Republican:

    The Republicans' hopes for capturing the governorship in the Old Dominion hinge upon running competitively in Northern Virginia and dominating in the mountain and western parts of the state, those hopes depend on which issues are at the forefront. If voters are thinking about the economy, taxes, and critical race theory, the data here suggest Youngkin might pull this off. If they are thinking about the virus and health care, McAuliffe cruises.

  4. Umberto Eco:

    There is only one thing that arouses animals more than pleasure, and that is pain. Under torture you are as if under the dominion of those grasses that produce visions. Everything you have heard told, everything you have read returns to your mind, as if you were being transported, not toward heaven, but toward hell. Under torture you say not only what the inquisitor wants, but also what you imagine might please him, because a bond (this, truly, diabolical) is established between you and him.

  5. Arthur Schopenhauer:

    In the sphere of thought, absurdity and perversity remain the masters of the world, and their dominion is suspended only for brief periods.
