Not since the 1992 campaign has Hollywood been so eager to enter the political arena. The difference between then and now is that in '92, Hollywood's liberals were comprehensible; the crowd grabbing the headlines today astounds in its ignorance.
Michael Jackson, according to the Santa Barbara district attorney, allegedly molested a 12-year-old boy. But not long after the search of Michael Jackson's estate, and the issuance of an arrest warrant, Jackson defenders whipped out the race card quicker than you could say "Billie Jean."
The Democratic presidential contenders, in their most recent debate, spent much time condemning the new health bill. This was to be expected: People who are running for president do not pause to congratulate the incumbent president on new social legislation.

When I dropped them off at their respective homes, something was obviously missing as nearly every child jumped out and slammed the van door. It was mildly shocking when it first "happened," perhaps an oversight, I told myself. But as the omission turned into a pattern, it became more than shocking – it was maddening.
It was gratifying news when fans around the country volunteered to donate their kidneys to basketball star Alonzo Mourning, who would otherwise have to cut short his career because of life-threatening medical problems with his own kidneys.
