changed the word in its transcript from addiction to affliction

somebody should have done an article on the MYRIAD times they've changed his actual words

the chicago tribune responded, briefly, to some LTTEs about the media's own cleanups of Bush's words, defending it by saying it was obvious, usually, what the president meant, and it was more important to accurately record what he MEANT, rather than what he actually SAID

9. "Come to the bar...
...I'll buy you a beer; I'll have an orange. Tell me about your day..."

That's Spalding Gray quoting Athol Fugard in his movie "Swimming to Cambodia"

That line was my answering machine message for about five years until that machine crapped out on me.

(Yes, my avatar is Spalding Gray, poor bastard)
