The famous mayor of DC has died

Marion Barry, the beloved Washington DC politician has died. Here are some of his more famous quotes, lifted from another post.

"If you take out the killings, Washington actually has a very, very low crime rate."

"First, it was not a strip bar, it was an erotic club. And second, what can I say? I'm a night owl."

"What right does Congress have to go around making laws just because they deem it necessary?"

"I read a funny story about how the Republicans freed the slaves. The Republicans are the ones who created slavery by law in the 1600's. Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves and he was not a Republican."

"The laws in this city are clearly racist. All laws are racist. The law of gravity is racist."

And perhaps his most infamous quote...
