"Militants finding it increasingly harder to get to Syria and Iraq may choose instead to go to northeastern Nigeria and internationalize that conflict." — J. Peter Pham, director of the Africa Center at the Atlantic Council, after the Islamic State group accepted Boko Haram's allegiance to the jihadist movement.



"I lived it. I didn't just see it." — President Barack Obama on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" when asked if he was familiar with Sean Penn's 1982 coming-of-age comedy "Fast Times at Ridgemont High."


"They say there's nothing more American than grabbing a hot dog, heading to the ballpark, and watching nine guys from the Dominican Republic. ... But you know what, today I learned that was wrong. They had eight Dominicans, and one guy from Irvine, California." — Will Ferrell, who played all nine positions and coached for 10 teams in five Arizona ballparks in a spring-training blitz chronicled for an HBO special.
