    Larry was doing the work of anyone up high in this case. Why would anyone waste that time and power on Anthony Weiner, at this point in time?

    I find what you've pointed out, interesting. But as of now, I still find it just a new angle for LO to ball out Anthony Weiner. To tell him what he thought. That is not the purpose of an interview. A good interviewer let's the subject expose themselves.

    What happened tonight, is that LO made no points, and in fact, made many have sympathy for the person he was attacking. As far as I can tell, most did not get LO's point, because they were so uncomfortable seeing him bully to no good or important end.

      I don't know. The whole thing was very weird.

      I think I prefer the idea of a puppet master pulling strings because it makes more sense. Otherwise Lawrence just went off the rails for the purpose of being cruel.

      So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.

        was to be cruel. Do think he got all tied up in his own ego and his, often, need to make it about his own smug satisfaction, which is imo, his achilles heel, despite the fact that I've seen him do very good work.
