Ever since the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke into the news, Turley has appeared in innumerable TV talk shows, magazines and newspapers. His voluminous comments are legally simplistic, and add up to a mindless diatribe against President Clinton and a defense of Turley's friend, Kenneth Starr. This pundit wants us to believe that the president committed such a heinous crime that he should be punished not once, not twice, but again and again.

A former subway motorman who was sentenced Friday to up to 15 years in prison for manslaughter, said he wished he had been killed instead of the five passengers in the crash that occurred while he was drunk. "My heart bleeds deeply for the families involved," Robert Ray said before being sentencing to the maximum of five to 15 years. "I wish it had been me. I'm saddened by the whole thing. It wasn't intentional. It was an accident. I can't explain how it happened, but it happened.

Irvine author Robert Ray, whose first novel wasn't published until 10 years after he began writing, admits to having made several errors in life. "One is not taking a writing course," said Ray, 51. "I wanted to do it my way. But writing is a craft, and you've got to apprentice yourself to somebody who knows more than you do: You need a mentor, a coach."
