From ‘Woke-A-Cola’ to ‘pants were the problem’: Quotes of the Week


The past week began with a row over corporations voicing their concern over Georgia's election law reforms and ended with the death of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, at 99. In between, President Joe Biden launched new efforts at gun control, while his son, Hunter, continued his book tour, showing a remarkably clear memory for some details but conveniently sketchy on others that may prove incriminating.

Here are the quotes of the week.
