The question Aug. 23: There has been some criticism of the army of pundits used on television news to comment on major events. How would you present an event like President Clinton's speech on Monday [about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky]?
President Clinton should've made his apology in a confessional to a priest. Everyone is so interested in his personal life, this would give them a real thrill.
I would present an event like the president's speech during a complete power failure at the White House.
I would have Bill Clinton go on television and sing the Brenda Lee hit song, "I'm sorry. . . . So sorry. . . . Please accept my aaaapology."
I would use Pinocchio inside Fantasy Land.
I would have included an opinion poll phone number, so President Clinton would have known first-hand our feelings on the subject.
