Porch Quote 

Who's the extremist?
"They could blow the place up."
--U.S. Rep. Cass Ballenger (R-Charlotte), referring to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which is across the street from his home near Capitol Hill. In an interview with the Charlotte Observer, he blamed the stress of living near the group, which he called a "fund-raising arm" for terrorist groups, for the break-up of his 50-year marriage.
