Quote Of The Day

"Being the first sucks. I'd rather not be the first but someone has to be first, or among the first. I think I'm experienced and very well qualified to deal with anything that might show up because I've broken barriers at lots of other places and I always win people over with who I am and what I can do." -Amanda Simpson, America's first openly transgender presidential appointee, on starting her job at the U.S. Commerce Department.
