Wiki

Laura Catherine Schlessinger (born January 16, 1947) is an American talk radio host, socially conservative commentator  and author. Her call-in radio program occasionally features short monologues on social and political topics, but consists mainly of her responses to callers' requests for personal advice. Schlessinger's answers have been variously characterized as direct, wise, to-the-point, abrupt and cruel. Her website says that her show "preaches, teaches, and nags about morals, values and ethics."

Previously, Schlessinger combined a local radio career with a private practice as a marriage and family counselor, but since going national she has concentrated her efforts on the daily syndicated The Dr. Laura Program, and on authoring self-help books. A television talk show was launched in 2000, but it was short-lived. The Ten Stupid Things Women Do to Mess Up Their Lives, and The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands are among her bestselling works.

   First, let me say this.  As a nation we need to have a conversation about the word "nigger."  We need to look at the historical use of the word, how it has been used to oppress black folk, and how its continued use today (yes, by many in the black community) continues to oppress today.  This conversation is necessary to the continued struggle to overcome the legacy of racism in our nation.  The fact that Dr Laura complained about this double standard even …

I do not listen to her or other talk radio shows. In the car it is classical or Teaching Co. cd's, (an example I recommend to all on Lunch.com). I just think that all of these talking heads regardless of whether they are on the right or left act like "shock jocks" to boost ratings. I majored in Pol. Sci. as an undergrad and history and philosophy in graduate school and am presently an adjunct professor in Asian history, and I am appalled at how low political discourse in this country …
