My name is `Abdu'l-BahÃ¡ [literally, Servant of Baha]. My qualification is `Abdu'l-BahÃ¡. My reality is `Abdu'l-BahÃ¡. My praise is `Abdu'l-BahÃ¡. Thraldom to the Blessed Perfection [BahÃ¡'u'llÃ¡h] is my glorious and refulgent diadem, and servitude to all the human race my perpetual religion... No name, no title, no mention, no commendation have I, nor will ever have, except `Abdu'l-BahÃ¡. This is my longing. This is my greatest yearning. This is my eternal life. This is my everlasting glory.
I do not understand how it is that financial institutions could think that they could take taxpayer money and then turn around and act like it's business as usual. I don't understand how they can't see that the world has changed in a fundamental way, that it is not business as usual when you take taxpayer dollars.
I've always been part of comedy. One of the things about our family was that if we were reasonably funny with each other, particularly my two brothers and myself, when my father was upset with something you'd want to make sure in some way you made him laugh. Because when he didn't laugh, you were in trouble!
