a few words about pat o'brien

ah yes -- pat o'brien. if you want the details of his life, especially his recent troubles, click on the above link.

i was watching him one time when this thought came to me: this guy is slick. if there's anyone in television who is the exact opposite of c-span's lowfrills to nofrills approach, it's him.

but he didn't come across as a con artist. he believed in what he was presenting. he wasn't a liar or thief; he was just deluding himself.

it's a lot like the difference between falsehoods and lies. we wrote about the difference in more detail here.

if you want a funny take on him, which also is somewhat cruel, click here.
