"[...] I can also no longer deny to myself that there are issues I obviously need to examine within my own soul, and I've asked for help."

What a moron.

If you parse that statement, he hasn't apologized for anything.

My wife just asked me if I wanted to join her to watch "Doctors F**K and Patients Die".

Geez, I can't stand that show-it's a prime-time soap opera!

"I apologize to T.R., my colleagues, the fans of the show and especially the lesbian and gay community for using a word that is unacceptable in any context or circumstance.

What's wrong with this context:

It is a good thing to keep a fire going by putting a lot of faggots on it.

My sympathies to Washington. It is one thing to have to follow the path of Kramer and kiss Jesse Jackson's posterior.

It is another thing entirely to have to apologize to a bunch of f.., er people, who want to mess around with your posterior!

I can't wait until the day people go racing in front of TV cameras and crying to the press about being called "stupid", "dummy" or the always hateful "jerk" at work. This world has gone insane.

Well, I surely didn't know there was controversy. I'm shocked, SHOCKED(!) to hear there are homosexuals in Hollywood or that the folks there would make a show that glorified the lifestyle.

My wife watches that show so I had the misfortune to see part of one. Great Caesar's Ghost! That show is awful.

Did you ever notice that the Golden Globe awards are followed by the SAG awards? Sorta like life, eh?
