Mayo on the Side: Michael Mayo | Sun Sentinel BlogsFunny how one ugly word can shape lives forever. Just ask Mark Fuhrman, the L.A. homicide detective whose use of the N-word became a national issue during the O.J. Simpson trial. Or Michael Richards, beloved as Kramer on Seinfeld, whose......
"Steve Harvey" is not everyone's cup of afternoon tea. Devotees of, say, "The Colbert Report" will find "Harvey's" right-down-the-middle humor uninspiring. Funny newspaper headlines and jokes about how men behave versus how women behave — where...
