Political Color In his new book "Politics Lost," Time magazine columnist Joe Klein complains about today's colorless political figures.

Is Aaron Bruns a co-writer on the daytime soap series "As The Stomach Turns"?
Stupid is as stupid does....

Feeling a little threatened by the Breck Girl, Momma T? It sounds as if you felt a pressing need to clarify, as to just who was the spouse, lol.
