Then when I got in the military I used to host - even in high school - I hosted the talent shows and when I was in the military I would host all of our base Christmas parties and stuff.
I think the one thing this picture shows that's new is the psychological disproportion of the kids' demands on the parents. Parents are often at fault but the kids have some work to do too.
I have to work really hard eight shows a week to get a nice check as an actor. But when I write a play and it's a - knock wood - hit the checks come in for many years.
I love it when Muslims go to war with each other as I do when the Christians do because it shows there's no such thing as the Christian world and the Islamic world. That's all crap.
It shows the truth - that the real meaning of a word is only as powerful or harmless as the emotion behind it.
Ah well the truth is always one thing but in a way it's the other thing the gossip that counts. It shows where people's hearts lie.
Ideas are only lethal if you suppress and don't discuss them. Ignorance is not bliss it's stupid. Banning books shows you don't trust your kids to think and you don't trust yourself to be able to talk to them.
Will some reporter or some Republican on the Sunday shows please ask why tax cuts raid the non-existent Social Security Trust Fund but all the Democrats' new spending doesn't? Will someone please ask that?
I would like to host a show something like travel or cooking or something like that something I'm really interested in and so I'm pitching a couple television shows.
Michael Palin decided to give up on his considerable comedy talents to make those dreadfully tedious travel shows. Have you ever tried to watch one?
When someone shows you who they are believe them the first time.
Research shows that parents are the single biggest influence on children - if you are worried about your teen and drugs talk to them.
In the Top 40 half the songs are secret messages to the teen world to drop out turn on and groove with the chemicals and light shows at discotheques.
We're seeing how the videos translate to the live shows and how the technology is really reaching kids.
I would love to be a guest on a talk show or a panel that shows women who have been on reality shows who've had success to prove to audiences that you don't have to be a fool to become successful.
Girlfriend and 100 Percent Fun were my two peeks around '92 and '96. The reality is that the times I had the most media success sold lots of records and played bigger shows I had the least control of my own life.
If you can go out with your live show and turn people on to that where you have that fan base that's religious and they're going to come see you when you're in that town once your radio success is gone and you're not a mainstream guy anymore you can still go out and play your shows.
I think the success of a talk show depends on how true it is to the personality of the person hosting it. The shows I really admire like 'Oprah' and 'Ellen ' are distinctively like their hosts so I think my show will be successful only if we try to stay consistent to my own sense of myself.
The historical basis for the gap between the black middle class and underclass shows that ending discrimination by itself would not eradicate black poverty and dysfunction. We also need intervention to promulgate a middle-class ethic of success among the poor while expanding opportunities for economic betterment.
Constant success shows us but one side of the world adversity brings out the reverse of the picture.
The fact that we're going through a crisis is an opportunity for Europe to be more coordinated and more integrated. We're actually talking about a European Monetary Fund or euro bonds about guarantees for countries about economic governance in the European Union. That shows the strength of Europe.
Atheism shows strength of mind but only to a certain degree.
My tastes in all things lean towards the arty and boring. I like sports documentaries about Scrabble players bands that play quiet unassuming music and TV shows that win awards. In that way I am an elitist snob.
Obama often criticizes policies that place the interests of the powerful ahead of the powerless. But through his administration's support of abortion rights Obama shows his lack of empathy for society's most powerless.
