He was a good senator and a good man who never lost his sense of humor. He was unafraid to speak out against his own party and even helped me in the fight against women’s heart disease! He will be sorely missed.

Singer, actress, director & philanthropist to meet health leaders to advance gender equity research and ensure women’s heart disease is a health policy priority

Washington, D.C.  (May 15, 2018) — Barbra Streisand, co-founder of the Women’s Heart Alliance, was in the nation’s capitol today to deliver the prestigious J. Edward Rall Cultural Lecture at the National Institutes of Health and raise awareness about women’s heart health and cardiovascular disease (CVD), which kills more women each year in the U.S. than … Read more »

In an ovation-filled evening, Barbra Streisand received the Paley Media Center’s coveted Icon Tribute Award from that organization’s  CEO and President Maureen Reidy, culminating an evening of laughter and surprising revelations as television’s noted power producer and lifelong Streisand fan, Ryan Murphy, engaged in  a conversation of candor, truth, wit and charm with the star.

To clarity misinformation in a story issued by local Los Angeles television station, KABC, the nature of cloning occasionally results in the birth of a litter rather than a single animal. The cloning procedure in this case resulted in a litter of four beautiful puppies, three of which survived. The KABC story was inaccurate in it’s headline which stated that Ms. Streisand had had beloved Coton de Tuléar, Samantha, cloned twice. The fact is that in using the DNA of … Read more »

Karl Rove may have resigned as the President’s chief strategist, but the dirty and secretive tricks that have characterized the Republican Party in recent years are still here to stay.

This smells all too familiar.

“Shortly after George W. Bush was elected…sort of…I saw him on television say, “If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck-of-a lot easier, just so long as I’m the dictator.” And he laughed…

You know people never really joke. That was very revealing…a taste of things to come…the arrogance of wanting unlimited executive power… a government that operates in secret…keeping presidential papers secret…holding secret meetings with oil companies…”

The Iraq war has cost more in American lives and resources than the Bush Administration originally advertised. I recently read that we have now spent upwards of $340 billion dollars on this failed war, with much of the money going into the hands of private companies that were handpicked by this administration to rebuild Iraq with no bid contracts. Before the war, White House economic adviser Lawrence Lindsay estimated the cost of the war to be $100 to $200 billion … Read more »

When I do an interview, I like to be quoted accurately. I also expect the truth to be told, with facts checked.

I fought hard for that part! How could they make that mistake? I loved the character of Fanny Brice (they even misspelled her name Franny).… Read more »
