Dr. Laura repeatedly used the N-Word, told the woman she was being too sensitive and suggested that maybe she shouldn't entered into a mixed marriage. The blogosphere responds. Dr. Laura apologized that day.

"If Hillary ran, I'd have to run against her,"

"If Hillary ran, I'd have to run against her," proclaims Dr. Laura Schlessinger. Interviewed for the new print publication of the right-fringe Newsmax.Com, Schlessinger describes Hillary (and Bill) as "perverse, disturbed and destructive … and immoral." and says that if Clinton throws her hat into the ring for a 2004 presidential bid, she will feel it necessary to follow suit. There aren't really words...

"[The child's mother] can punish the whole world because of this affliction of her son. She can punish everybody who doesn't want to call this normal. But it's not normal. And it's not nice."

"[The child's mother] can punish the whole world because of this affliction of her son. She can punish everybody who doesn't want to call this normal. But it's not normal. And it's not nice." Dr Laura on . . . children with Tourette's Syndrome. Words fail me. Nice story of how people networked on the Net to respond though.

Pop psychology, in fun-for-the-whole-family game form.

Pop psychology, in fun-for-the-whole-family game form. Based on her nationally syndicated radio show, this fast-paced board game has players matching wits with the doctor, responding to some of her 600 real, phone-in dilemmas. This amazon outlet deal features Nag, Preach, and Teach cards, and a scary looking box. You know your fifteen minutes are up when you hit the amazon outlet rack.

Letter to "Dr." Laura

Letter to "Dr." Laura since laura schlessinger can make biblical pronouncements on gays and lesbians, perhaps she can clear these things up as well. [and i refuse to call her doctor seeing as how she doesn't have a medical licence. but that's another discussion...]

Feed has a thought provoking Daily.

Feed has a thought provoking Daily. I haven't been following this controversy very closely, but the article is interesting. The focus is not on the anti-gay sentiments of Dr. Laura (and subsequent backpeddling thereof), but rather the implications of the mutability of the digital medium.

I have got to get this new book.

I have got to get this new book. I've had to listen to Dr. Laura's mean spirited gibberish for years. It's nice to see someone's finally wrote a book about the real person.
