    Once again, being in bed by 10 pm has a lot going for it. I recommend it to others here.

    Tipper Gore's thing was rock music.

    The Married With Children thing was started by a woman from a wealthy Detroit suburb who obviously couldn't figure out how to work her remote control. She looked kinda like Tipper, though, and I forgot her name.

    Letterman was tanking big time in the polls and Palin made his numbers go up without even being on his show. Can't believe how "unpopular" this woman is.

    Hannity interviewed Sharpton the other night and Sharpton didn't seem that upset about Letterman and said Imus' faux pas was worse than Letterman's. I'm afraid I had to change the channel at that point so I didn't hear his "rationale". You can absorb just so much crap in a 24 hour period.

    With Jackson and Sharpton it's all about the Money !They put the squeeze on CBS and they caved in for several million. If they lose Letterman,as bad as he is, there goes the their network !They need to keep after Letterman and haunt him .He will lash out eventually as his ego must be enormous .I wonder if he fired the writer that wrote the Paulin skit ?

    Most old people go to bed early and the reference to old for some has nothing to do with age.

    Old people also know when to use "to" and "too"; I see that's dying out. :p

    I saw part of that-Sharpton was saying that Letterman's insults were directed to two specific people, and Imus' were directed toward a group, so he felt that it was on Palin to respond to Letterman's remarks, but it was for him to respond to Imus'. It was a roundabout way of saying that "I'm a civil rights activisit, so a racial comment is something I'm going to respond to".
