‘Free State of Jones’ went beyond that.

Stephen J. Dubner

The challenges our state faces must be met with the best solutions and ideas we can muster – and good ideas and good people reside on both sides of the aisle.

Kelly Sue DeConnick
If we follow the traditional way of thought, there will always be traditional enemies. Extremist circles from both sides will find causes to give rise to problems.
The great joy of doing ‘The Daily Show’ for me is that I get to sit on the fence between cultures. I am commenting on the absurdity of both sides as an outsider and insider. Sometimes I’m playing the brown guy, and sometimes I’m not, but the best stuff I do always goes back to being a brown kid in a white world.
I understand that not everyone agrees with my perspective on Ray Kelly. But what you gotta look at here is somebody like Bill de Blasio talking out of both sides of his mouth and trying to have it both ways on a really critical issue like stop-and-frisk.

From the political angle, I’m trying to be apolitical if you will. I mean people say, ‘Are you a red state or blue state?’, I say, ‘I’m purple.’ I think there are great ideas on both sides of the aisle and neither side has cornered the market.
We are not frou-frou creative types. We have done both sides of the business and are constantly asking ourselves, ‘How are we going to pay for this?’ But the criteria is that it must fit with our world.

I have an office full of product from brands trying to be in videos and an inbox full of songs from artists, but at the end of the day if the artist doesn’t support the brand or it doesn’t make sense for the song, then it will never work. What we do is try to pair them up so that both sides are happy.
No longer is there a quest for the truth so much as there is this apparent need to present both sides of an issue even if one is nothing but lies and distortions.

It is not just willy-nilly running around. I need to fill certain spaces and make sure we are covered on both sides of the ruck and the numbers are right.
Faf de Klerk

I’m not anti-American. I was raised to love both sides.
I have found people on both sides of the aisle, white and black, that’ll give you the shirt off their back. And I’ve also found people that won’t give you a piece of bread if you’re starving to death.
I don’t feel real confident expressing myself except when I’m writing. I feel kind of scatterbrained. I can see everything from both sides and that makes it hard to reach conclusions. Writing enables me to clarify things.

I had just finished working on a play, and we started to talk to the ‘Happy Endings’ folks. There was interest from both sides, which was exciting, because I thought it was very fresh. Adam Pally’s just a really funny, talented dude. I thought I’d be great to jump on and do some comedy.
I’m not embarrassed that I’m mixed. I’m not ashamed that I’m mixed. I very much embraced both sides.

From the ground, I’m pretty solid from both sides. My form really helps me a lot and my backend complements it.
