pl,

I am a simple girl of the people. You may depend upon it, sir, as people used to say. And I do watch the teevee, but mainly for sports and movies. I just happen to disagree, courteously, with your assessment of Mr. Sterling and his chances at law. I am available for crow-eating purposes should it be called for.

Tyler

Hah hah glad to see the old man is refusing to buckle under and is gearing up for a fight. Commissioner Skeletor is going to hate this sideshow.

Sterling is a badly flawed business man (ugh!), but if he fights back against the ignorant armies of the PC world he is doing us all a favor. pl

Tyler

No you see Fred, we have racism to fight and racism is the worst thing ever so we must suspend the Constitution and English Common Law (which were invented by white racists) in order to deal with this.

Col,

Just a minor FYI, it occurred to me this might not be widely known in the east: They air "Morning Joe" at 3:00AM on the west coast and do not run it again, and very nearly all of us take the hint.

So, its not really a national show. Well, that would explain why it is so much a New York City show. Sorry, Stephanie. pl

Col.,

"ESPN reported Thursday that .... experts declared Donald mentally incapacitated."

So the NBA, the players, the media, the NAACP and multiple politicians including the President all weighed in on the comments of a many who is mentally incapacitated? A proud moment for all involved. I hope the public pays some attention to the legal ramifications.

Sterling is suing the NBA for one billion. I wish her luck in proving him gaga. pl

Larry Kart

Turns out he won't sue after all.

Let's see what he got in addition to the money. pl

Larry Kart

Well, luck was on her side; she proved him gaga:

He is not through. He may do something like adopt a child to continue the fight after he dies. pl

"He is not through. He may do something like adopt a child to continue the fight after he dies. "

With the introduction of the adopted-child ploy, I'm thinking we've got the makings of an excellent modern comic opera and/or musical here. Donald, Shirley, the adopted kid, the vindictive mistress, the NBA commissioner -- what a cast of characters! We should collaborate. I see the adopted kid as an Annie-type, with a blow torch voice; Shirley a cross between Mama Rose in "Gypsy" and Adelaide in "Guys and Dolls," and Rita Moreno or Chita Rivera as the mistress. Donald is tricker; I see him as Bert Lahr. The commissioner, who knows?

I see this as something like "The Producers." Casting will be critical but when do we start writing? pl

Mark Logan

LK,

Jack Nicholson.

Larry Kart

"The Producers," for sure. As for when we start writing, perhaps we should wait for events to unfold a bit more. If Joan Rivers had a bit more meat on her bones, she might make a good Shirley. LK
