I'm sitting in a booth, and there's a couple in front of me. I'm not paying attention to them until I hear the man spill his drink. I still don't look up... until I hear the unmistakable sound of liquid pouring off a table onto the ground. For 20 seconds.

America is facing devastating times. We need to pull together, be decent and help each other. I didn't think about whether the folks waiting in line for gas were republican or democrat. I just donated to the Red Cross and prayed for them all.

I'm so thoroughly boiled in bile after 30 years of cranking out newspaper and TV stories that I'm amazed whenever anybody does the right thing without working an angle. This is an amazing story about one of my favorite people...

Are You Decent?

I learned long ago not to use God to justify my actions, to act like I'm superior to anyone else, or to rationalize my false need to control the lives of my fellow man and woman. Instead, I try my level best to cultivate my decency, and pray for other Americans to do the same.

I have seen individuals and organizations of all types become trapped in the same disastrous pattern from which they rarely escape, or at least not completely unharmed.

NBC axed the show after episode 3. Feminists, parents and anti-porn groups that boycotted the program are elated -- but arguably Playboy will come out on top for three reasons.

You must not believe that we are in a financial debt or deficit "crisis." It is a complete sham. The problem is that our leaders do not have the spine to go after the rich and the powerful.

I want to create a new organization to stamp out stupidity and indifference and restore common decency and goodwill into society. I think I'll call it the National Organization of Pissed-Off Elders (N.O.P.E.).

The Media's Double Standard On Showing Neda's Death

Either show us the Neda video uncensored, or don't show the poster. You can't really have this one both ways. The American public can either handle this image or we can't. Decide, and be consistent.

I don't draw the line at debate -- I draw it at decency: respect for each other, for the rule of law, for the role of America in the world.

Barack Obama has gone back on his word, Barack Obama is a hypocrite ... I couldn't be happier. Truth is, if what's necessary to win in November is some outright cheating, I'd be all for that, too.
