ABSTRACT
The article presents quotes of media personalities on different topics as of August 2003. Performer Marion said, ''The only guarantee a man has in life is that you are born to die. I'm from the ghetto, where black men get killed every day. It's like Jesus. Anyone who reads the Bible knows Jesus was no punk. He didn't hide from nobody. That's how it is with me too. I fear no man. Only God." Viacom Inc. chief Sumner Bedstone said on the $14 billion price tag for Vivendi Universal SA's entertainment assets, ''We are very price sensitive and would only be interested if the price was right, and I mean right. We will pursue the auction diligently but not aggressively."
