Time magazine credits convicted Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff with one of the quotes of the year: "God sent me 1,000 hints that he didn't want me to keep doing what I was doing. But I didn't listen, so he set off a nuclear bomb." Time, however, doesn't credit the source. The quote came from David Klinghoffer's exclusive interview with the disgraced Beverly Hills High School alum in the Jewish Journal of Greater L.A. The quote actually had a little more to it:
ďI had lost a sense of proportion and judgment. God sent me 1,000 hints that He didnít want me to keep doing what I was doing. But I didnít listen, so He set off a nuclear bomb.Ē
