Chris Rock was on "Inside the Actors Studio" the other night. I'm pleased to report that excruciatingly white host James Lipton did not this time refer to himself as a honky or otherwise attempt what he thinks is street vernacular. In fact, it was a good interview.

Example: Lipton asked Rock to explain the sociology behind blacks but not whites using the n-word. Rock's incredulous reply: "Now I've got this job?!"

But the highlight was a revelation about an episode of the old Chris Rock Show on HBO. Eight years before the OJ book, Rock presaged it to a startlingly accurate degree. There's truth in comedy, indeed.
