I don't know if anybody wants to mix their politics with their entertainment.
I went to a military school between the ages of six and 12 and later into the air force. You learn discipline and strength of character.

I've looked at pictures that my mom has of me, from when I was four years old at the turntable. I'm there, reaching up to play the records. I feel like I was bred to do what I do. I've been into music, and listening to music and critiquing it, my whole life.
I just write what I wanted to write. I write what amuses me. It's totally for myself. I never in my wildest dreams expected this popularity.

Harry Connick, Jr.
Like many women my age, I am 28 years old.
Cursed is the man who dies, but the evil done by him survives.

God's love is too great to be confined to any one side of a conflict or to any one religion.
