Voices in the News
LIANE HANSEN, host:
From NPR News, this is WEEKEND EDITION. I'm Liane Hansen.
And these were some of the voices in the news this past week.
Mr. JACK NICKLAUS (Professional Golfer): As I was coming down the last couple holes, and as nice as the people were, I'm sitting there and I said, `You know, I don't really think I want to make the cut.' Now that's a--I mean, that's sort of a funny statement for Jack Nicklaus. But, I mean, I felt like, you know, people have given me so much that, you know, I wanted to be part of it and enjoy it and then not have to come back and do that again.
Mr. WAYNE HALE (NASA Manager): After this flight, we will have a much, much, much better idea of whether or not our--the measures we have taken to reduce debris shedding from the external tank have been effective or not effective. All I can say is shucks. We came out here all ready to go today. We've been working really hard to be ready to go and we incurred a problem. It took us about five minutes of discussion to confirm that and decide that it was time to try another day.
Unidentified Reporter: You stood at that podium and said that Karl Rove was not involved, and now we find out that he spoke about Joseph Wilson's wife. So don't you owe the American public a fuller explanation? Was he involved or was he not? Because contrary to what you told the American people, he did indeed talk about his wife, didn't he?
Mr. SCOTT McCLELLAN (White House Press Secretary): David, there will be a time to talk about this, but now is not the time to talk about it.
Unidentified Reporter: Do you think people will accept that, what you're saying today?
Mr. McCLELLAN: Again, I've responded to the question.
(Soundbite of traffic)
Mr. GEORGE PSARADAKIS (Driver of Bus Bombed in London): As we stop together in silence, let us send our message to the terrorists: You will not defeat us, and you will not break us.
