“They love me,” said the singer, wiping a mustard-covered tomato from his forehead I’m not an actor or a dramatist by training.

When they call you a racist I had breakfast with a PR guy who began his career as an actor. The stage and public relations both require “alligator skin,” since people with an agenda are absolutely willing to lie about you these days. (They believe their own lies, so it makes it easier, and, of..
Debating I’m actually debating whether or not to return to Facebook now that my jail sentence is up. Think about it this way. Suppose you enjoy a tavern where all your friends hang out, and you’ve spent quite a bit of time there. You truly enjoy the company; the company enjoys you, for the most..

You aren’t even given the courtesy of communicating with your friends, either on Facebook, or off it. There’s no — “would you like to..
The Government Will Buy Your Chalkboard.. ..As Long As You Forfeit The Bill of Rights Wrong. Our lawsuit against Claremont School district, (background here) filed by Thomas Eastmond’s Firm, has prevailed in its first big test. A federal judge has ruled today that.. “..the Court finds Riley has standing to pursue his claims.” “..the private..
