Judge: "Father Berrigan, regardless of the outcome of these hearings, will you promise the court that you will refrain from such acts in the future?"

Dan: "Your honor, it seems to me that you are asking the wrong question."

Judge: "OK, Father Berrigan, what do you think is the proper question?"

Dan: "Well, your honor, it appears to me that you should ask President Bush if he'll stop making missiles; and, if he'll stop making them, then I'll stop banging on them and you and I can go fishing."

Daniel Berrigan, Jesuit and Acvtivist, for those of you who were wondering.
