NORM MACDONALD: A stand-up kind of guy -  Despite having starred in his own TV shows and movies, Norm Macdonald said he prefers doing stand-up comedy.

Opinions

CHARITA GOSHAY: American needs to overcome its fears, remember what sets us apart.

PAM ADAMS: Signs of the political times keep disappearing - Black equals bad. Bad equals Muslim. Muslim equals terrorism. Terrorism equals fear. Circular logic leads us to the local couple who believe Barack Obama has a secret plan to turn the country over to Muslims. The Republican who told me about them couldn't believe he heard them say what he heard them say. And, further along the spectrum of circular logic that makes you go "uhmmm," we go to the retired Peoria police sergeant who can't understand why Obama campaign signs keep disappearing from his yard.
