Colin Powell's Quote

I often spend time on various boating message boards on the web. I'm the guy that posts links to snopes.com to debunk stuff that gets posted on the "Dock Walk" or "Non Boating Related" section.

Today I ran across this that I had seen elsewhere before:

When in England at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of empire building by George Bush.

He answered by saying that, "Over the years, the United States has sent many of its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders. The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return is enough to bury those that did not return."

It became very quiet in the room.

I dutifully headed off to Snopes. It turns out that not only is it true (though the paraphrase is a bit off) there is even more laudable in the Secretary of State's comments. Snopes on Powell's comments.

A slow cooker is basically nothing more than an electric
pot with a stoneware insert that can cook food at a consistently
low and even temperature for 10 or 12 hours.
Well, if the previous cooker is still working and we
can still use it. These wonderful little devices are essential to any kitchen, and
no matter which one you buy, you'll have plenty of delicious dinners to look forward to.
