Geraldo Rivera: I'm Not A Boastful Man, But Among My Many Accomplishments, I'd Have to Say Ending the Cold War and the Soviet Union Are Rather High on My List of Favorite Epoch-Changing Events

I'ma gonna stomp my planets post that no one except a few geeks cares about.

If anything, it unsettles the Cuban government, the repressive communist Cuban government. I detest what they stand for, a lot of what they stand for.

Get 'em satellite TV. Let 'em see what America's all about.

Andre Sakahrov just emailed me to say, "He's right, I was a huge fan."
