The Washington Post

The best sentences we read today

- "The general way condominium associations seem to work—at least in our major coastal centers—is through a kind of arbitrary totalitarianism."

- "The biggest mistake we made in wedding planning was forgetting about the media: that silent, invisible dragon breathing down our necks all along."

- "Privately, many people working for the coal lobby concede that time has finally come for coal to face up to climate change."

- "'Oh, God, the major social ramifications, the political intrigue, all the important people involved in the case—I’m going to be played by some sinister character actor in a drama with tons of award buzz, aren’t I?' said Scalia, joining his fellow dissenting justices in realizing they would be antagonists in a film potentially titled Defense Of Marriage and probably written by Tony Kushner."

- "The edge of the solar system has no edge, it turns out. It has a fuzzy transitional area, not quite 'solar system' and not quite 'interstellar space.'"
