    This is for all things "George"

    Etymology: from the Greek name Γεωργιος (Georgios) which was derived from the Greek word γεωργος (georgos) meaning "farmer, earthworker", itself derived from the elements γη (ge) "earth" and εργον (ergon) "work".

    All the Georges I know are amiable characters. And for some reason they all had red/brown hair.

    Guess which George said these things:-

    "Rarely is the question asked, 'Is our children learning'?" --Florence, S.C. Jan 11 2000

    "It's in our country's interests to find those who would do harm to us and get them out of harm's way."—Washington, D.C., April 28, 2005

    "See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda."—Greece, N.Y., May 24, 2005

    "After all, Europe is America's closest ally."—Mainz, Germany, Feb. 23, 2005
