"Jerry Springer, I think, is valuable in that he is a
reflection of our culture, which is in decay."
-- Former talk-show host PHIL DONAHUE, telling The New York Times
that the First Amendment's guarantee of free speech applies to
Springer's daytime bouts of hair-pulling, name-calling, tell-all
The Constitution, edited by Rep. Dan Burton, R-Ind.:
Silence on Whitewater may get Susan McDougal a 10-year prison term....That
will put her on the street just before Ken Starr's report hits the street.
Ted Kaczynski is in Colorado's Supermax prison. The U.S. government puts
only the most hardened criminals there. This means he could share the same
cellblock as Susan McDougal. (Alan Ray)
The state of New Jersey is interested in luring away the New York Yankees.
The advantage would be less overhead. No city codes. No city taxes. No
loose beams. (Alan Ray)
