The actor, a brother of better-known Alec Baldwin, suffered back and neck injuries. He faces possible driving under the influence charges following the Wednesday crash in Los Angeles. Reuters reports:
Baldwin, 45, smashed his silver Ford Thunderbird into two parked cars after an officer saw him driving at more than 80 mph and weaving through traffic on bustling Bundy Drive on the city's west side, Los Angeles police spokesman Jason Lee said.

"The officer tried to catch up to the Thunderbird, lost sight of it momentarily and came up to a traffic collision where the T-bird had crashed into two parked vehicles," Lee said. "The Thunderbird pushed one of the vehicles about 20 feet , and that was a Hummer," Lee said.

Baldwin was taken to UCLA Medical Center after complaining of back and neck injuries, Lee said, and would be detained on suspicion of reckless driving and driving with a suspended license.

Lee said Baldwin could also face charges of driving under the influence if he were found to be intoxicated. There were no other injuries reported and Baldwin's female passenger, who was not identified by police, was not charged.

Baldwin, who has appeared in a number of television series including "Homicide: Life on the Street," is a member of an acting clan that also includes brothers Alec, Stephen and William Baldwin.
Nearsighted God mistakes Daniel for Alec?

Who cares.

I sure don't.

The whole Baldwin family has a gene-pool problem.

And you would know, Newtie.

Yes I would.

Any man who advocates dragging a family from their home and hanging them in their front yard is sick.

That's what Alec Baldwin said he would do with Ken Star and his family in defense of Billy boy.

If that's normal, thank-god I don't share the gene-pool problem of the left in this country.

Newtster: Wrong again, you are. Baldwin said these things about Henry Hyde, the lawmaker from Illinois who led the House impeachment effort against Bill Clinton.

And it's Starr, with two Rs. You may dismiss proper spelling as an insignificant detail. That would not be a surprise.

So, what's next? Do I get my knuckles rapped with a meter stick? Do I write Starr 1000 times on the blackboard? What is not a surprise is how mean spirited you are. Christ, take a cigarette break!

But Baldwin did say that about Ken Starr as well. I watched his sound bite on TV. I refrain from saying I heard him say it on TV as to not give offense to Doc Larry.

So is it alright in Liberalville to hang a member of Congress over that of a Special Prosecutor?

I seen it happen on the turner report, I seen it happen on the ky3 political blog, and now I see it happening on chatter.

Some people appear to hide behind the clock of anonimity and post preposterous and often untrue comments about people and positions with which they don't agree and take umbrage when corrected.

I learned that tactic in debate school: fog the issue.

It works only for those who are as smart as the last person they talk to.

Well, Newtie, perhaps if you were back in Canada, you would.

Here in the United States, we'd probably use a yardstick on you instead. We're just funny that way.

By the way, Newtie, it's sound byte, not sound bite.

A sound bite is what a council member's dog gives you.

A sound byte is a snippet (not a whippet, but a snippet) of noise, typically human speech.

Now, go write that 1,000 times on the blackboard, or we'll be forced to humiliate you further.

Don't you just love that newtster always insists something happened because he saw it on TV? Tough to document such claims. I once saw a nun fly on TV. Really.

Oh, and good catch, anonymous. Meter stick. Guess we all know who newtster is.

I'm a little confused. Newster's opening volley was that he didn't care that a human being was injured in a car accident. His last volley is that LIBERALS are insensitive? Or are we only supposed to be upset when Republicans are subjected to idle rants?

Boy oh boy. Hey doclarry and anonymous. Guess what, I'm not from Canada. Went there once on a vacation. Didn't like it.

So you two pick out the word "meter" and profile me as a radio talk show host formerly a citizen of Canada? I thought liberals were against profiling? I am not the fine man you take me for.

As for the sound bite reference, I believe that's what the TV guys say, isn't it? Because when it comes to subjecting your ears to the likes of Mr. Baldwin, thank god I don't get offered up the full interview. Here is Alec Baldwin's quote from his appearence on the Conan O show in 1998. Keep in mind, this isn't a sound bite.

"If we were living in another country, what we, all of us together, would go down to Washington and stone Henry Hyde to death, stone him to death, stone him to death!" said Baldwin. "Then we would go to their house and we'd kill the family, kill the children."

So, Mr. Davis, with all due respect, I guess we were both wong. It was death by stoning. Not hanging. It was, however, Mr. Baldwin who advocated a kneecapping for Ken Starr.

And watch out for flying nuns, too.

Newtie, assuming your sourcing is correct (which I generally don't, in your case, but we'll make an exception for the sake of argument here)...

If Baldwin went on LATE NIGHT WITH CONAN O'BRIEN, just how serious do you really suppose he was trying to be?

Tip to the tipless: Late Night With Conan O'Brien is a COMEDY show. It is generally not regarded as a forum for actors (that's ACTORS, not heads of state) to issue fatwahs calling for the deaths of Illinois Congressmen, members of the Office of Special Counsel, their families or pets.

Ron, I knew you were of Japanese ancestry, but until Newtie mentioned it I never realized that both you and he were "wong."

Is that Master Wong, perhaps?

It sure is a pleasure to converse with all you fine people who have the unique ability to walk on water.

Praise Jesus. And Master Wong, too.

Oh, and Anon. Can I buy an "r"?

Well put and pithy observation, Newt.

If we all had the ability to walk on water, Newtiepoo, then it wouldn't really be so unique, now would it?
