Wish I'd Said That: The sneakiest two words in the English language arc "plus lax." Remembered Quote: "When you have broken ribs, a hiccup is a crisis, a cough is a calamity, a sneeze is a disaster, and a pat on the back is the meanest thing one human being can do to another." 'Earl's Pearls: "One of the evils of drink is a bartender who won't give credit." Neil Diamond's outdoor concert in New Zealand drew more than Billy Graham or Elton J OHN. When it began to rain, Neil told the crowd, "God is punishing us for breaking Billy Graham's record." There's been an increase in viloence on TV. Have you noticed how many shows have been killed off?
