Why was Larry King such an ass to Queen Noor?
They were talking about King Hussein's last days and Larry kept saying he looked terrible. He kept interrupting, saying things like "bald" and "gaunt." To her credit, Queen Noor said that she thought he looked strong and valiant. King then interrupted again and said, "cancer--he had that cancer look." What an insensitive asshole!

1. King Hussein was a real King
as opposed to miserable Larry, who only has the name

2. The better question is...
Why is Larry King still on television?

3. Why was he ever?
Something about that creature has always made me want to vomit - I just can't help but feel sheer antipathy toward him, ever time I see or hear him, and I have no idea why. I mean, apart from the fact that I understand that his show is annoying - I can't even watch it.

He seems to have a monumental ego and, frankly, I don't know what he has to be so egotistical about (other than showbiz success and a succession of young wives who must see something that I can't see, like maybe his checkbook). Rarely has so terrible an 'interviewer' experienced such success. Horrible. Bleh. I feel queasy just thinking about him. I'd just love to stretch those %$#@*ing suspenders about four feet out and then let 'em fly....irritating SOB that he is.....

4. Larry King
With all those young wives he really had a nerve berating Clinton about Monica. Larry King is a dirty old man. He is obsessed with the sex lives of others. Sorta tells us something doesn't it? He made me want to puke. I don't watch him because he is so sleazy. Why others like him is beyond me.

6. I'm sad. King Hussein was one of the classiest people of the 20th

Century. And his wife is still a classy lady, Queen, and mother. Damn your coal black soul, Larry!

7. Maybe we should ask "Why is Larry King an ass?"
I mean, how is Queen Noir different from anyone else - Larry King is still an ass no matter what!

BTW, she's an incredible person and I hope to get to her autobiography one day soon!

9. Talk about pots and kettles ...
Bald? Gaunt? Larry King has that "cancer look" and he doesn't even freaking have cancer (I'm assuming King Hussein did, I don't know)
