"We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” - Elie Weisel

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor." - Desmond Tutu

"There comes a time when neutrality and laying low become dishonorable. If you’re not in revolt, you’re in cahoots. When this period and your name are mentioned, decades hence, your grandkids will look away in shame." - David Brooks

    As should be abundantly clear to anyone on either side of this who takes a minute to put their emotions aside, the only way the Town of Johnston could possibly prevail would not be through the law in and of itself but rather through the nauseatingly familiar scenario of interpreting the law for the sake of, in this case, municipal gain orchestrated by the cabal of Raimondo, Polisena, Sabitoni, and their BFFs. In other words, welcome to Rhode Island. The land of the community theater version of the Sopranos. And the curtain never closes.
