Kate: Suddenly I'm Dr. Laura. Next thing you know I'll be talking about processing and my inner child. I'm sure I'll be back to my usual level of cynicism in no time.
"Dr." Laura Schlessinger is the host of the nationally syndicated call-in radio show Dr. Laura. Also the author of several books, she is known for her outspoken fundamentalist views on such issues as premarital sex, homosexuality, and abortion. Dr. Laura arrived on television in the fall of 2000, but due to much negative campaigning for the show (led mostly by gay activists and the website StopDrLaura.com) the low-rated show was quickly cancelled in early 2001.
