On Life Support

Good Morning. A few new items as the Democrats' Senate majority hangs by a thread...

  • Godspeed, Peter Boyle. But the death of one of the stars of "Everybody Loves Raymond" only highlights a death of much longer date. See "A Graveyard of Comedy..."
  • Jimmy Carter is catching all sorts of flack for his new book, "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid." Naturally, friends of Israel are hyperventilating. See Pierre's "You Mean It's Not Apartheid?"
  • Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" is having a hard time getting a hearing in some public schools, where the oil lobby is putting up a fuss. Candide's Notebooks contributor Linda Sexauer writes "Goring Gore from Schools..."
Plenty more in the Daily Journal, including barbarism with an American face, the flabby state of education, why the French riots were a good thing, and more... Thanks for
