There could never be anything worse than losing a child. Clapton turned his grief into "Tears in Heaven," but don´t you know he´d give anything to trade that great song for having his son back again. The tears weren´t only his. God bless Eric, the father.

Re #3: "I never knew how he could sing that song in public."

Eric sang that most personal song on his acoustic "Unplugged" album. He could sing it live for the same reason that Elton John sang his and Bernie Taupin´s "Candle in the Wind" (reworked for Diana) in her funeral service: because he is a professional. That doesn´t make it any easier. But a pro performs. Eric and Elton are among music´s ultimate professionals.

Clapton is a very talented man. It is a miracle that he´s still alive after abusing drugs, alcohol and living through the loss of his child.

I think he can play that song because it´s cathartic. For a musician, working your problems out through your craft can be tremendously satisfying and help to heal wounds. I´m glad he has this outlet, just as I´m glad those of us who aren´t musicians have music of others to help us through our struggles.

I wanna see this doc.

About half the American people do not believe the mainstream media tell the truth. They believe the media are more interested in promoting their left-wing views than reporting the truth. I am, I note with sadness, a member of that half. Here is but one more example: The New York Times best-seller list. As a writer (who, for the record, had a previous book on that list), I have long known it isn´t a best-seller list, and I don´t pay attention to it. But I paid attention last week to see if my recently published book, which opened up on

Diamond and Silk, two of President Trump’s most outspoken and loyal supporters, say the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency “should go pay” Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) “a visit” so long as he keeps calling himself “an undocumented person.” In a speech this week, Cuomo referred to himself as an illegal alien, saying: I’m an Italian-American, I came from poor Italian-Americans who came here. You know what they called Italian-Americans back in the day? They called them w**s. You know what w** stood for? Without papers. I’m undocumented.

President Trump lashed out at “the dishonest media” in defense of his longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen, who is under pressure from prosecutors in the wake of the FBI raid on his office and home last week. “The New York Times and a third rate reporter named Maggie Habberman, known as a Crooked H flunkie who I don’t speak to and have nothing to do with, are going out of their way to destroy Michael Cohen and his relationship with me in the hope that he will ‘flip,’” Trump tweeted from his motorcade in Florida Saturday in the first of

Todd said, “Sean Hannity can do what he wants to do, but I’m surprised Fox isn’t making him, at a minimum, disclose a conflict every time he talks about this.” Todd then denounced a post on Hannity’s website, “The Utter Hypocrisy of Chuck Todd,” which

Rush Limbaugh on his April 19 show said the important news in the report of Inspector General Horowitz´s report is the August 12, 2016 call to McCabe from the Obama DOJ regarding the Clinton Foundation investigation. Limbaugh believes that it was Sally Yates, of the Obama DOJ, who called McCabe to tell him they were "concerned" about the investigation. Horowitz found that McCabe lacked candor in describing how he authorized his in-house FBI special counsel (not Mueller) to reveal the phone call to Wall Street Journal reporter Devlin Barrett. By doing so, McCabe confirmed there was an FBI investigation of

First-term Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is emerging as a Democratic presidential contender in 2020. However, according to Politico, her own voters in California do not really know much about her. In an article titled “Kamala Harris’ rapid rise confounds California,” Politico’s David Siders writes: Kamala Harris has been called “the female Barack Obama.” She’s built a national following with her outspoken criticism of Donald Trump and prolific fundraising for fellow Democrats. But the California senator’s rapid rise — she’s just 15 months into her first term — has created an awkward issue: Even as progressives tout her as one of

Donald Trump’s long-planned visit to Britain is back on, the Mail can reveal today. In a major boost to relations between London and Washington, the US President is expected to come to the UK for several days this summer. A senior Whitehall source said dates in mid-July were ‘pencilled in’ the diary, with July 14 the favourite. Mr Trump is expected to hold talks with Theresa May either in No 10 or at Chequers. He could also meet the Queen or other senior members of the Royal Family, even though it is not a state visit. Officials will be keen to

The Democratic National Committee filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit Friday against the Russian government, the Trump campaign and the WikiLeaks organization alleging a far-reaching conspiracy to disrupt the 2016 campaign and tilt the election to Donald Trump. The complaint, filed in federal district court in Manhattan, alleges that top Trump campaign officials conspired with the Russian government and its military spy agency to hurt Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and help Trump by hacking the computer networks of the Democratic Party and disseminating stolen material found there. “During the 2016 presidential campaign, Russia launched an all-out assault on our democracy, and it found

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently told the White House he might have to leave his job if President Trump fired his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the exchange. Sessions made his position known in a phone call to White House counsel Donald McGahn last weekend, as Trump’s fury at Rosenstein peaked after the deputy attorney general approved the FBI’s raid April 9 on the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen. Sessions’s message to the White House, which has not previously been reported, underscores the political firestorm

The past 12 hours brought two very big revelations involving former FBI director James B. Comey, President Trump and the Russia investigation, and they must be looked at side by side to fully grasp their collective importance. Comey’s memos of his conversations with Trump have leaked in full. This came after Republicans threatened to subpoena them from Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, leading him to release them to Congress. Comey confirmed to Rachel Maddow that before getting fired, he ordered an internal investigation into whether Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani had been privately tipped off by people in the FBI two weeks

A California school district says that parents can’t opt out of a new sex education course that will deal with abortion, homosexuality and transgender issues. California passed a law called the California Healthy Youth Act in 2015 to promote “healthy attitudes” about “gender [and] sexual orientation.” The law is meant to teach students about the “effectiveness and safety of all FDA-approved contraceptive methods” and allow for “objective discussion” about “parenting, adoption, and abortion.” The law also gives parents the ability to opt-out of this education and said that the “pupil” shall not be punished academically in any way if they don’t

But I think it is important that we understand the degree of oppression we are up against. I regret to say: I have been silenced. I expressed an opinion, and people criticized that opinion. And since that day, my voice has never been heard again. I am entombed where none can hear my jangling bells, for doing nothing more than walking down the street, saying that women who get abortions
