Peace Corps Online: Frequently Asked Questions: Can I post excerpts from news articles on PCOL?

I read a letter in the Denver Post, today, which I would like to quote in a message I would like to post to pcol...if I credit the author and use quote marks, is that okay? Or, do I have to get permission from the Post or something? It is just a beautiful phrase...the letter is about patriotism, not the Peace Corps. Thank you.
