I find myself at the age of eighty, an old woman, hanging on to the tail of the world, trying to keep up. I do not want the drivers seat but the eternal verities. There are certain things that I wish to express: one thing that I am very sure of is that hatred is death, but love is light. I want to contribute to the civilization of the world but ...

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:55PM

I could swear that in one of her television campaign ads, Darcy Burner, the Democrat running against U.S. Rep. Dave Reichert, referred to the president as Georgie Bush. After that had run a few times, I noticed that she was now saying George. The technicians probably just nipped that second syllable out without having to re-film.

The WASL, other items making the news
