NYT article quote of the moment

"When Mr. Chansley addressed the court, he quoted Jesus, Gandhi and Justice Clarence Thomas. He went on to discuss his tattoos, his late grandfather's role in his life and the prison movie "The Shawshank Redemption."

***

He also apologized for his role in attacking the Capitol, saying that in the days since, he has often looked into the mirror and told himself, "You really messed up, royally.""

After Mr. Chansley's lengthy speech to the court, Judge Lamberth thanked him, saying the comments were among the most remarkable he had heard in 34 years on the bench. But the judge then told Mr. Chansley that he would still have to serve time in prison.
"What you did is terrible," he said.
