||Dr. Laura Schlessinger
probably wishes she had added an 11th commandment to her new
book, "The Ten Commandments": "Thou shalt not
release smut on the Internet." (Chastened Republicans will
obey that one from now on.) The nation's radio mommy spoke to
her charges during the first week of November: " I have
undergone profound changes over the course of my life - the most
important of which is my journey from atheist to observant Jew.
In my 20s, I was my own moral authority. The inadequacy of that
way of life is painfully obvious today."
Not only was Schlessinger taken apart in an expose´ in
September's "Vanity Fair" magazine, but more recently,
she endured the humiliation of knowing that youthful nude photos
of her were posted on the Internet. On 97.1, Tom Leykis read
the article and later promoted the nudity.
"I am mystified as to why, 23 years later, this 80-year-old
man would do such a morally reprehensible thing," she said.
That man - once her "mentor and friend"- is former
radio personality Bill Ballance.
