"We want to listen" - Feds in response to church fires

The article on CNN's website has some really great quotes from Jim Cavanaugh of the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. F-U-N-N-Y!!! Here are a few of my favorites:

"I think there's probably some stressors in their life: Family, relationships, work, the economy."

"We do think they have a message. We would like to hear what they would have to say ... We want them to call us. We want to listen."

"This is some high-risk behavior. They need to think about that," he said. "We're not trying to hornswoggle them on this."

So, there you have it. Probably my favorite of the quotes is the first one. I love the acknowledgement of the possible problems in these arsonists' lives, which may have led them to such "high-risk behavior". No Hornswoggling going on there.
