* "I have decreased my donations because I feel that the victims of the September 11 attack are in much more need of money."
* "I haven't increased or decreased. I just haven't given. I'm tired of all these groups calling me at dinner time. Obviously, if you've given to an organization before, that means they have the right to contact you any time they want."
* "Approximately 3,000 people died on September 11 from human terrorists. About that many people have died every day for the last 20 years from this viral terrorist. It's simple arithmetic."
* "Lesbians will keep on giving unselfishly to AIDS organizations regardless of what else is happening."
