    Tributes to two of the most famous American entertainers of the 20th century serve as a reminder of how fame flees. The entertainers are Bing Crosby and Bob Hope; the reminders are the documentary “American Masters: Bing Crosby Rediscovered,” which had its premiere last week (and will run again on Dec. 26 ) on PBS, and “Hope: Entertainer of the Century,” a new biography by Richard Zoglin. Neither Crosby nor Hope have much cachet with contemporary consumers of art and culture, but the accounts of their careers make convincing cases that their contributions still influence their respective fields, even if...

Although Hope never officially served in the military, he dedicated a significant part of his life to entertaining the country's men and women in uniform starting in 1941 and continuing through Operation Desert Storm 50 years later.

    "I thought it was going to be just another birthday," Dolores Hope mused as she attended a Hollywood gathering celebrating her 100 years. When her late husband, entertainer Bob Hope, reached his 100th birthday, he was too frail to enjoy it. Although Dolores Hope was brought to Wednesday night's party in a wheelchair, she was alert and happy as she greeted old friends and posed for photographs. At 100, Dolores Hope is little changed. Her white hair is richly coifed, her skin is smooth and her voice is deep and warm. Her 10 decades were represented by 10 kiosks set...

Reporters continue to seek comment from candidates, political operatives, and pundits. It seems that everyone is an expert, and everyone has an answer. Some of the more interesting responses have come from Republican senators who typically begin by asserting that they honor Senator Kerry’s Viet Nam service, but… Honor: What is that all about? What virtues are honorable? More important, what virtues are both militarily and...

    Bob Hope immigrated to the U.S. when he was 4 years old, and like millions of other would-be Americans, Ellis Island was the first U.S. soil he stepped on. Now, Reps. Elton Gallegly, R-Calif., and Elliot Engel, D-N.Y., have written other members of Congress asking them to rename the Ellis Island Immigration Museum as the Bob Hope Memorial Library, reports the Associated Press. "Bob Hope held a special place in his heart for Ellis Island," read the letter, and the renaming would honor Hope's "great contributions to the American people, the American culture and the American dream."

He was always a modest, decent, good-humored man, with more common sense and a keener sense of proportion than most politicians. And he loved a good laugh. But the very qualities that made him charming and convivial underscored the absurdity of entrusting him, or any man, with the awful power of the American presidency. The superlatives his adulators heap on him seem as wide of the mark as the exaggerations...

    Some serious thoughts about a funny subject. Where there's life there's hope but sadly now, where there's Hope there is no longer life. Bob Hope's hundred-year life lasted until shortly after the old century, awash with wars, semi-wars, tyranny, conflicts, suffering and starvation, came to an end. He brought the sunshine of humor to shine upon the blasted landscape of a planet engaged, for much of the century, in brutal self-destruction. He was so funny for so long that we all became like Pavlov's dogs -- so conditioned by a lifetime of his humor that once he began his...
