"Turkish floats above my head like the smoke from the joint, which I like a true Californian, smoke too greedily. The meticulously polite, offensively charming boys are somewhat outraged that I drag three times before passing it on. “In Turkey,” says one of the boys in his round about English, “We smoke once.”"

-- From the Most Brilliant Girl In the World, La JohnJoseph's blog about being in Turkey.

"Barry also had a knack for interceptions. When a joint was making the rounds, he often elbowed his way in, out of turn, shouted "Intercepted!," and took an extra hit. No one seemed to mind."

-- From Barack Obama: The Story, by David Maraniss (2012).

There are times when we have to do what we have to do.
