That's Just The Way These People Are

News of the passing of Mike Douglas has launched a discussion in the comments section on the long-running battle between Douglas and Merv Griffin.

Frankly, I don't know that anyone ever really solves the explosive Griffin vs. Douglas debate, though thousands have senselessly died trying.

Years ago, it seemed like a possible resolution was on the horizon after Boutros Boutros-Ghali got the United Nations involved in response the worldwide outcry that followed Dinah Shore's tragic crossfire-related death. But such hopes proved ephemeral when hostilities renewed after the Jenny Jones/Montel Williams brigade commenced afternoon talk operations in the early 90's throwing the whole region into disarray.

One thing is certain. This ancient conflict was being fought long before any of us were every born, and there's no reason to think it will be solved in our lifetime.
