Quotations of the day

“We must have the trust of the American taxpayer. Unfortunately, that trust has been broken.” — Acting IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel, who say he has installed new leadership at the agency and is conducting a review of what went wrong and how to fix it.


“I think there will be some who will step back and say: ‘Am I really doing something safe here?’ I think you’ll probably have others … that just feel that invincibility that they’ve always felt and they’ll keep doing what they’re doing and basically look at it as though it was an aberration or an outlier.” — Michael Armstrong, a meteorologist for KWTV in Oklahoma City, after the deaths of three storm chasers in the state.


“We already have a spring in Turkey. But there are those who want to turn this spring into winter. Be calm, these will all pass.” — Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who rejected comparisons with the current protests in Turkey and the Arab Spring uprisings that toppled governments in Tunisia, Libya and Egypt.
