I remember her when she was an NBC reporter -- correspondent in Japan -- and I thought she did great work. I haven't watched their morning show that much in late years, but from what I remember then, I can't see how she would lose her ability to be a journalist.
Probably the most important single element that I found in my own marriage was a sense of humor. My wife had a delicious sense of humor, and I think I have an adequate one.
And that's the way it is.
We've got a great percentage of our population that, to our great shame, either cannot or, equally unfortunate, will not read. And that portion of our public is growing. Those people are suckers for the demagogue.
We are on the precipice of being so ignorant that our democracy is threatened.
When Moses was alive, these pyramids were a thousand years old. Here began the history of architecture. Here people learned to measure time by a calendar, to plot the stars by astronomy and chart the earth by geometry. And here they developed that most awesome of all ideas - the idea of eternity.
Everything is being compressed into tiny tablets. You take a little pill of news every day-23 minutes-and that's supposed to be enough.
I grew my mustache when I was nineteen in order to look older. I never shaved it off even though it overran its usefulness many, many years ago. Once you get started in television, people associate you with your physical appearance - and that includes the mustache. So I can't shave it off now. If I
We're living in a state where no one can trust his telephone conversations, nor even his personal conversations in a room, in a bar or anywhere else.
The very first day we were there, ... I started getting notes in my box to call this Bernard Shaw.
Our country today is at a stage in our foreign policy similar to that crucial point in our nation's early history when our Constitution was produced in Philadelphia.
The debates are part of the unconscionable fraud that our political campaigns have become a format that defies meaningful discourse. They should be charged with sabotaging the electoral process.
For nearly five decades the World Federalists have worked to promote a strengthened UN and more effective institutions of global governance. I offer my personal endorsement. Now a great opportunity has opened for the realization of the dreams of the UN's founders.
It is difficult to think of our craft without him.
I can't imagine a person becoming a success who doesn't give this game of life everything he's got.
For how many thousands of years now have we humans been what we insist on calling "civilized?" And yet, in total contradiction, we also persist in the savage belief that we must occasionally, at least, settle our arguments by killing one another.
Everybody knows that there's a liberal, that there's a heavy liberal persuasion among correspondents.....Anybody who has to live with the people, who covers police stations, covers county courts, brought up that way, has to have a degree of humanity that people who do not have that exposure don't ha
We cannot defer this responsibility to posterity. Time will not wait.
America's health care system is neither healthy, caring, nor a system.
Errol Flynn died on a 70-foot boat with a 17-year-old girl. Walter has always wanted to go that way, but he's going to have to settle for a 17-footer with a 70-year-old.
The profession of journalism ought to be about telling people what they need to know - not what they want to know.
Would it be better to have a president who cries easily? Well, that depends on what he cried about. I would not like the thought of a president who could not cry. That would be worse than one who cried over the right things. Which, in this case, would be the things I would cry over.
I sort of think in a way that many of us young reporters who had the opportunity to go overseas for our organizations were kind of, in a sense, war profiteers. We were enhancing our careers while covering that terrible conflict.
My piece just kind of was another bullet in his rear end.
It seems now more certain than ever that the bloody experience of Vietnam is to end in a stalemate,
I think he's terrific. I've always had a great appreciation of his ability. And I would rather like to see him stay on the job there.
So now the question is, basically, right now, how will the Osama Bin Laden tape affect the election? And I have a feeling that it could tilt the election a bit. In fact, I'm a little inclined to think that Karl Rove, the political manager at the White House, who is a very clever man, that he probabl
The invasion of Iraq was illegal from the start.
I think he [composer Joe Raposo] was the first man who kissed me on the cheek.
People who understand music hear sounds that no one else makes when Frank Sinatra sings.
