On The “Missing” Commandments: There were actually more than ten, but Moses was old and grumpy, and after he broke the tablets he could only remember the negative ones. “Don’t do this. Don’t do that.” The truth is, most of them were more like advice. The Twelfth Commandment, for example, was “Whistle while you work.” (People think its from Disney, but Disney stole it from God.)

Don, born January 1, 1943, is still very much entertaining us all and currently lives in Marin County, CA. His sister-in-law, Antonia Novello, was Surgeon General of the U.S. from 1990 to 1993, and could not be reached for comments on the recently exposed ill-effects of “huffing” microwave popcorn vapors.
