LBN-LYRICS OF LIFE By BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN:
We swore we'd travel darlin' side by side.
We'd help each other stay in stride.
But each lover's steps fall so differently.
But I'll wait for you.
And if I should fall behind.
Wait for me.
LBN-HISTORICAL COMMENTARY By COCO CHANEL:
I love luxury.
And luxury lies not in richness and ornateness but in the absence of vulgarity.
Vulgarity is the ugliest word in our language.
I stay in the game to fight it. (1943)
"He was not perfect, but my father believed in redemption.
And he never surrendered."
-EDWARD M. KENNEDY Jr., at his fathers funeral.
CALL FOR REFORM:
At a private service for Senator Edward Kennedy, prominent politicians used his death as a rallying cry for health reform while also sharing personal memories of the senator.
Senator John Kerry and Kennedy's nephew, Rep. Joe Kennedy, vowed to carry on Kennedy's fight.
"Don't ever, ever, ever, ever give up," Joe Kennedy said to applause.
BILL WOULD GIVE PRESIDENT EMERGENCY CONTROL OF INTERNET:
Internet companies and civil liberties groups were alarmed this spring when a U.S. Senate bill proposed handing the White House the power to disconnect private-sector computers from the Internet.
They're not much happier about a revised version that aides to Sen. Jay Rockefeller, a West Virginia Democrat, have spent months drafting behind closed doors.
CNET News has obtained a copy of the 55-page draft of S.773 (excerpt), which still appears to permit the president to seize temporary control of private-sector networks during a so-called cybersecurity emergency.
The new version would allow the president to "declare a cybersecurity emergency" relating to "non-governmental" computer networks and do what's necessary to respond to the threat
By FREDDIE MERCURY:
You can have everything in the world and still be the loneliest man.
And that is the most bitter type of loneliness, success has brought me world idolization and millions of pounds.
But it's prevented me from having the one thing we all need:
A loving, ongoing relationship. (1986)
LBN-COMMENTARY By LEON HOFFMAN:
Sigmund Freud arrived in Hoboken, N.J., 100 years ago today on his first and only visit to the United States.
He came to lecture on psychoanalysis and to receive an honorary degree from Clark University, in Worcester, Mass.
It was, he said, an honorable call, a mark of his academic success.
Freud was then 53 and had been practicing for 23 years.
At the time, most doctors here and in Europe still considered mental illness to be caused by degeneration of the brain.
They assumed that there was little to be done for it beyond physical treatments like diet, exercise, drugs, rest and massage.
But a growing awareness that the mind could influence bodily functions was giving rise to debates about the nature of the unconscious mind.
LBN-HISTORICAL COMMENTARY By JAMES DEAN:
I think there is only one form of greatness for man.
If a man can bridge the gap between life and death.
I mean, if he can live on after he has died, then maybe he was a great man.
To me the only success, the only greatness, is immortality. (1953)

LBN-COMMENTARY By HUGH HEFNER (Founder, Playboy Magazine):
One of the things I find really curious is when people say I've lived an amoral life.
From my perspective, it's quite the contrary.
I feel I've lived a very moral life.
I've been on the side of angels from the beginning.
