Time Warner’s refusal to carry Disney programming on its cable distribution networks, while apparently legal, greatly inconvenienced television viewers and rests on shaky ethical grounds. Disney, owner of the ABC network, is one of Time Warner’s fiercest competitors. As such, no love was lost between the two in the contract dispute that led to this […]

Vietnam 25th anniversary recalls painful lessons

If we go, you will have a chance to find him. If we stay, we will all die. My mom had no idea where my dad was the day Saigon fell. He had been serving as a doctor for the South Vietnamese forces in Danang – the most important base for the U.S. Army during […]
