What are you doing December 16? Why not screen An Inconvenient Truth for your friends and neighbors as suggested here. Hey, it’s the only planet we’ve got. Al Gore will be on ‘Oprah’ today, and on ‘Today’ tomorrow. (I was on ‘Tomorrow’ years ago.)
John in Atlanta: ‘If you and Buffett, Ben Stein, and other glitter types, feel you are not paying enough Federal Income Tax there is a simple solution: just write a check for whatever amount you wish and send it to the IRS to be applied to the National Debt.

Speaking of déjà vu – what are you doing December 16? Why not screen An Inconvenient Truth for your friends and neighbors as suggested here. Hey, it’s the only planet we’ve got. Al Gore will be on “Oprah” today, and on “Today” tomorrow. (I was on “Tomorrow” and “Today” and “Oprah” years ago.)
