Posted February 8, 2012 | 02/08/12 04:24 PM ET

I arrived into this world at the Queen of Angels hospital in Los Angeles into the hands of Dr. Sidney Kolodny.

Dr. Kolodny was Jewish.

Last night, I heard Senator Rick Santorum tell...

Posted August 30, 2010 | 08/30/10 03:20 PM ET

Five years ago this week, a beast drowned New Orleans. Don't blame Katrina: the lady never, in fact, touched the city. The hurricane swept east of it.

You want to know the name of the S.O.B. who attacked New Orleans? Locals call him "Mr. Go" -- the...

Posted September 22, 2009 | 09/22/09 01:45 AM ET

I still get a thrill whenever I get my hands on a confidential memo with "The White House, Washington" on the letterhead. Even when--like the one I'm looking at now--it's about a snoozy topic: This week's G-20 summit.

But the letter's content shook me awake and may keep me up...

Eighty billion dollars of WHAT?

I searched all over the newspapers and TV transcripts and no one asked the President what is probably the most important question of what passes for debate on the issue of health care reform: $80 billion of WHAT?

On June 22, President Obama said he'd...

The Day the President Turned Black
(But Has He Turned Back?)

Posted July 30, 2009 | 07/30/09 01:30 PM ET

He's in hot water now. For a moment, on national television, the President of the United States turned black!

Last week, when his buddy "Skip" Gates got busted for being Black in Boston, Barack Obama forgot his official role: to soothe America's conscience with the happy fairy...

Obama's "Way-to-Go, Brownie!" Moment?

Posted December 11, 2008 | 12/11/08 05:13 PM ET

Has Barack Obama forgotten, "Way-to-go, Brownie"? Michael Brown was that guy from the Arabian Horse Association appointed by George Bush to run the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Brownie, not knowing the south shore of Lake Pontchartrain from the south end of a horse, let New Orleans drown. Bush's response was...

No question, Mr. Bruce was my favorite teacher in junior high.

I went to this Loser-ville school in the San Fernando Valley. It was all Chicano kids and working class white losers like me. Everyone had to take "metal shop" so we could work the bottom-end jobs in the Chevy...
