6. he wouldn't say. He just said a senator I talked to who is not up for
re election. They were talking about the ones that are and how their constituents don't want this deal

5. I'd like to thank Keith for doing a story on Buck O'Neil. He is a hero
and a national treasure. Buck is the greatest living baseball ambassador and I am so proud that he so often represents Kansas City. I've met so many hall of famers in all sports, but Buck O'Neil is better than them all. For more info, please read here:

"John Jordan "Buck" O'Neil (born November 13, 1911 in Carrabelle, Florida) is a former first baseman and manager in Negro league baseball, most notably in the Negro American League with the Kansas City Monarchs, and a coach and scout in Major League Baseball.

Due to racial segregation, he was denied the opportunity to attend high school in Sarasota, Florida or play in the major leagues. His baseball career began with the Memphis Redsox in 1937, and he joined the Monarchs shortly thereafter. He led the Negro Leagues in batting in 1940 and 1946. A World War II tour in the U.S. Navy from 1943-1945 briefly interrupted his playing career."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buck_O%27Neil

Shame on the baseball committee for bypassing Buck once again. My eyes welled up with tears watching him on the local news tonight. He said (paraphrased) "Don't be mad at the folks on the committee. They did what they thought was right. They have a tough job. As long as you all still love me, that's all ol' Buck needs."

14. Ah, thanks for that story about Buck O'Neil.
I fell in love with him when he was featured in Ken Burns's PBS Baseball series. I think he should be declared a national treasure.

18. can you say 'severe irony deficit?'
10 Jun 2004

Bill O'Reilly: "Joseph Goebbels was the Minister of Propaganda for the Nazi regime and whose very famous quote was, 'If you tell a lie long enough, it becomes the truth.' All right? 'If you tell a lie long enough, it becomes the truth.' And that's what Stuart Smalley and Michael Moore and all of these guys do. They just run around <...> So who turns out for the screening of this movie last night? You ready? Now, here are the celebrities that turn out. Here are the people who would turn out to see Joseph Goebbels convince you that Poland invaded the Third Reich. It's the same thing, by the way. Propaganda is propaganda. Okay? Billy Crystal. Martin Sheen. Leonardo DiCaprio. Ellen DeGeneres. David Duchovny. Sharon Stone. Meg Ryan. Ashton Kutcher. Demi Moore. Norman Lear. Rob Reiner. Jodie Foster. Chris Rock. Larry David. Jack Black. Matthew Perry. Diane Lane."
