AT LAST, from Bill Cosby's own ugly mouth, we have his admission that he obtained sedatives to give to young women with whom he wanted to have sex.

I WAS wrong. Bill Cosby didn't deserve the benefit of the doubt. He cheated on his wife, Camille. He cheated on his kids. He cheated on the people who fell in love with Dr. Huxtable, because they couldn't see any line of demarcation between him and his alter ego. He cheated on Philadelphia. He broke my heart. It's not as if my heart hasn't been broken before. I almost married a man who claimed to be something he was very clearly not - an honorable person. I grew up in a milieu where drinking and adultery and all the other "if it feels good do it" vices were common currency in the social market.

But there he was, chatting away Friday on Good Morning America . He disclosed little of any substance . "I have been in this business for 52 years, and I've never seen anything like this," Cosby, 77, told Linsey Davis of the sheer tonnage of trouble piled his way.
