We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. We must remember that an accusation is not proof and that conviction depends upon evidence and due process of law. We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep into our history and our doctrine, and remember we are not descended from fearful men โ€“ not from men who feared to write, to speak, to associate, or to defend causes that were, for the moment, unpopular.

"It's not the fart that kills you - it's the smell!"

'Fart' means 'Speed'
And 'Smell' means ca. 'Collision' (in this case) in NORWEGIAN.

It seems those words have somehow found their way back on the website.
