NBC's West Wing was canceled by the network Sunday after
seven years on the prime time schedule. Martin Sheen knew in
advance but was able to be tight-lipped about it. He's the only

Harry Belafonte likened Homeland Security to the Gestapo
Friday a week after he called President Bush a terrorist. Words
have consequences. Harry Belafonte could be banned from New

John Kerry refused to tell ABC News Sunday whether he will
run for president again. He did say that both Richard Nixon and
