On Glenn Beck Tonight
The subject was the death penalty, and we were supposed to debate an anti-death penalty actor/activist named Mike Ferrell.
We say “supposed to debate” because the host, a highly aggressive Philadelphia talk radio personality, monopolized the time attacking Ferrell.
He should have left that to us.
We did get in a couple of good points, and guess that Andy Warhol’s famous dictum that everybody will be famous for 15 minutes needs to be revised.
In this age of cable news, it should be that everybody will get to be famous for 15 seconds.
