"Your tax dollars are being used to pay for grade-school classes that teach our children that CANNIBALISM, WIFE-SWAPPING and MURDER of infants and the elderly are acceptable behavior." – Jesse Helms 1996

Since we are supposed to say something nice about the dead I’ll just say that I feel sorry for his family and understand the grief that they must feel, fully aware that Jesse is in hell today… most likely getting fucked in the ass by Roy Cohn.
