Numbers Tell the Story

The latest Gallup Poll tells us that 75% OF Americans disapprove of GW Bush's performance as president.

Abraham Lincoln said that "You can fool all of the people some of the time." Now, thanks to Gallup, we know the number of people who can be fooled all of the time: 25%.

Stuart Woods

The novelist, Stuart Woods was the guest of honor and speaker Friday when the Friends of Selby Library held a luncheon at Michael's On East.

Naturally, I was there. I just had to know more about the author who's kept me up night after night, and kept my money going for book after book of his.

I asked him how he spends a typical work day. He said he writes "from 11 until 12" and then he goes for lunch and plays with his various toys - - from his power boat to his airplane.

Watching the debate

I loved Barbara Billingsley. When I was a kid, I had a crush on her.

...But I sure don't want June Cleaver to be Vice President.

No offense meant, but....

I'm seeing lots of guys lately with the shaved head look.

Someone needs to tell them that, while the look works well for Michael Jordan, the only two white men who've ever been able to pull it off were Yul Brynner and Mr. Clean.

A movie I wish I'd seen

It's not generally known, but at the time of his death, the great actor Claude Rains was in negotiations to star in a film about the outbreak of the Spanish-American War. He was to play a Spanish agent assigned to Havana, but the project was scrapped when the writers could not come up with a plausible way to avoid linking the character to the sinking of our battleship, which would have made the movie too controversial.







That's… Continue

24-Hour Protection

I'm spending a fortune on mouthwash these days.

...Because every bottle says, "Do not use if printed band around cap is broken or missing," and every time I open a new bottle, the band breaks or falls off....

Working with other artists

Someone recently left me a comment saying something along the lines of, " what a joy you must have working with such great people."



Well...yes.



...And no.



On the one hand, theatre and dance are collaborative art forms; if someone's not willing to collaborate with other artists, s/he should be a sculptor or a painter. My best lighting is almost always done in situations in which I'm working with great collaborators, and many of those performers, directors, and… Continue

Dear Mr. President....

In the final episode of The West Wing, Abby Bartlet, the outgoing First Lady, says to her husband, "You did a lot of good."

Mr. President, in the coming months, I'm sure that many people will say similar things to you.

These people will be wrong.
