    I think Montel is probably living a lot better than most black men his age.
    Actually better than most men his age. Period.

    Montel, I'd like to go sea kayaking w/you.
    A low-key, zen like paddle if you stand it, baby.

    I heard an interview with him and he said he has to go to Chile every year during our summer season to snowboard and get out of the heat. How many of us can do that? Now he has turned into a fortune teller with a crystal ball who can predict his future?

    He is certainly interesting.....

    Thanks Agate. I actually like the man in a general way and admire that way he sticks up for what he believes in. Not many will.

    *whisper* do we not like Montel for some particular reason I may not know about?

    Watched his shows once in a while but am far from a seasoned fan.

    I can't speak for anyone else but I don't dislike Montel. Like Sally, I just haven't been following him very closely. Occasionally saw his shows.

    I just watched an interview with him (May 21?) on YouTube where he mentions being on Copaxone (which he didn't name but he calls it the drug you inject every day) for 12 years and missing only 14 shots in those years.

    Jack will apparently be on Piers Morgan on CNN on Thursday night to speak about his MS diagnosis.
