You're fired!" I just wanted to put those words in print one last time, while it's still legal for me to do so.
Top-selling R&B singer R. Kelly had some of the child pornography charges brought against him dropped recently because of a judge's ruling that evidence was seized illegally.
One of my favorite conversation topics among my journalist friends and colleagues is that of media ethics.
Last week I asked you, the reader, to submit ideas for this week's column. Responses ranged from short ideas to the flattering suggestion that I should give up photography and write full time. There was also a comment from someone who thought I was soliciting ideas to boost my own ego and that I might not have any quality material left to work with.
You'd think Republicans had the perfect scam going. Having had George W. Bush appointed to the White House, no matter what outrages were perpetrated during his administration no one would doubt the plausibility of his denials of awareness.

Elton John turns 57 this week, Thursday, to be exact. After several years of following Donny Osmond, David Cassidy and the Jackson Five, I fell in love with Elton John n obsessed, even. Nearly every inch of my bedroom walls was covered in his posters and magazine cutouts of his campy, bespectacled mug. I made a pencil holder out of an empty jelly jar that I glued on smaller cutouts of him in various costumes. I still have it but the posters are long gone.
