Executive summary: Lounge singer, 45-million records sold
Mellow singer of the early rock era, known for covering music from black musicians in a manner palatable to white audiences. Also a movie actor in the late 1950s and 1960s, best known for starring in a 1959 adaptation of Jules Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth.
Eventually lived next door to Ozzy Osbourne for three years in Beverly Hills. Later, Boone covered "Crazy Train" on his faux heavy metal album In a Metal Mood: No More Mr. Nice Guy (1997), which was comprised of big-band arrangements of Ronnie James Dio, AC/DC, Metallica, and others. Now a far-right political activist, and proprietor of Pat Boone All-American Meats, a mail-order steak business.
Always politically conservative, Boone has become more outspoken and generally wingnutty in his old age.
"I don't think censorship is a bad word, but it has become a bad word because everybody associates it with some kind of restriction on liberty."
Hasn't anybody got the guts to accuse the worst perpetrator in this whole Abu Ghraib prison debacle -- CBS and 60 Minutes II?
What do you call it when, in time of war, someone takes military intelligence and turns it over to the enemy, who in turn uses it to kill Americans?
Isn't that the definition of treason? Did Benedict Arnold do worse? Did Julias and Ethel Rosenberg pay with their lives for something like this?
These things happen in war on all sides, and though they are not excusable, they are kindergarten exercises compared to car bombs, ambushes, rocket launchings and dangling burning bodies over bridges -- and this is what the interrogators at Abu Ghraib were trying to find ways to stop.
And as a direct result of CBS callous and patently unpatriotic action, America is suffering great loss of prestige around the world, and will for decades.
America has lost credibility with Muslims and the Arab world internationally, perhaps forever; and every American life is in far greater danger from terrorist reprisal, no matter who and where we are!
For me, CBS has become "the enemy within", and I hope never to watch the network again. I think most Americans ought to reflect on the results of their irresponsible and unpatriotic behavior and perhaps narrow their viewing options by one network. The next time America or Americans suffer at the hands of terrorists, thank CBS.
P.S. As of today, May 21st, you can add Brokaw, NBC and The Washington Post to the list. Have these media pariahs gone mad?! Who'll be next to fire at our own troops?
