Should we call him "Spartacus"? Or "Champion"? Both names certainly fit the man. Kirk Douglas turns 95 tomorrow, and he is still very much with us.
Cameron did what many drug-addicted prisoners do when they are imprisoned. They seek to get high to escape the living hell they are in, even if it means breaking the law.
Non-violent drug offenders like Cameron should not go to prison, but should receive drug treatment. This would be a more effective and more affordable solution for the individual and the community.
I don't care if he's married. I don't care if he's over 50. I don't care if he's a curmudgeon. I don't even care if his eyebrows enter a room five minutes before the rest of him. Andy Rooney's the guy for me.
After nearly four decades covering and editing hundreds of crime stories, Ronni Chasen's murder struck me as the kind of random violence that often strikes after dark in many parts of Los Angeles.
Why are so many young people looking at bleak futures with fewer jobs and lower incomes and no reserves? Could it be that Wall Street and its craven machinations are somehow to blame?
"In 1981, I went to the Golden Globes with United Artists executive Steven Bach who green lighted "Raging Bull". This film went on to win Best Actor ...

The Gordon-Gecko-of-France's sentence was pathetically short compared to the 20 years the fictional character played by Michael Douglas was ordered to serve.
With movie critics split on the film, here's a look at what Wall Street's real bankers -- and those who cover them -- had to say about the movie, its 1987 original, and the larger-than-life Gordon Gekko.
Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps was a missed opportunity to shed light on the worst financial crisis since the 1930s. The crash of 2008 deserves a defining film. This isn't it.
Simply put: Michael Douglas can't stop talking. None of this is good for the sleep of Oliver Stone, a wayward director who needs Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps to be a mega-hit to stay on top.
Oliver Stone is never content to just make one movie; he always makes several, then squeezes them all together into one engorged package, chockablock with gaudy visuals, oversized characters and unchecked passion.
As seen through the revealing lens of timeless film, you can derive a measure of comfort and perspective amidst the seeming complexity of it all, because the pressures and vicissitudes of the work place go back a very long way.
