I have a musical called Goodbye and Good Luck based on a Grace Paley short story. I also have King Island Christmas and there are 20 different productions of it this year.
Women love to be called cruel even when they are kindest.
While gossip among women is universally ridiculed as low and trivial gossip among men especially if it is about women is called theory or idea or fact.
To a philosopher all news as it is called is gossip and they who edit and read it are old women over their tea.
Women have been called queens for a long time but the kingdom given them isn't worth ruling.
This society in which we live is radically changing. What previous generations saw as evil is now embraced as being good. It is a dangerous and slippery slope upon which we stand when we reject what Solomon called the beginning of wisdom - the fear of God.
A great memory is never made synonymous with wisdom any more than a dictionary would be called a treatise.
I just wrapped this movie called The Wedding Crashers which was a pretty big break for me.
One side-effect of the so-called war on terror has been a crisis of liberalism. This is not only a question of alarmingly illiberal legislation but a more general problem of how the liberal state deals with its anti-liberal enemies.
I made a French film called 'Merry Christmas' which is a very European film. It's a World War I piece.
War continues to divide people to change them forever and I write about it both because I want people to understand the absolute futility of war the 'pity of war' as Wilfred Owen called it.
Al Jazeera aired a new tape of Osama bin Laden. It was the usual stuff he called Bush evil the Great Satan called him a war monger. Basically the same thing you heard at last night's Democratic debate.
And we love to dance especially that new one called the Civil War Twist. The Northern part of you stands still while the Southern part tries to secede.

Gossip is called gossip because it's not always the truth.
I now announce myself as candidate for the Presidency. I anticipate criticism but however unfavorable I trust that my sincerity will not be called into question.
We believe. We believe in our destiny as a nation. We believe we have been called to do good to spread the blessings of liberty and encourage the sense of trust upon which free societies depend.
Eventually I booked a 2-line role on a show called 'JAG' and slowly the parts got bigger and better. I'm very thankful that I had to appreciate how difficult the business is before I had any kind of success.
I take mentoring very seriously and I am on the board of an organization called Girls Write Now where we match teen girls and writing mentors because it changes their lives.
To even be called the 'teen queen' is crazy.
I am a technological activist. I have a political agenda. I am in favor of basic human rights: to free speech to use any information and technology to purchase and use recreational drugs to enjoy and purchase so-called 'vices' to be free of intruders and to privacy.
There used to be this country called the Soviet Union it's not there anymore. Our technology was better than theirs.
I am fascinated by all the new technology that creates places for us to meet in what is called cyberspace. I understand what it must have meant for the rebellions in the 19th century especially in 1830 and 1848 when the mass circulated newspaper became so important for the spreading of information.
I think we are living in selfish times. I'm the first one to say that I'm the most selfish. We live in the so-called 'first world ' and we may be first in a lot of things like technology but we are behind in empathy.
