Oh, I did! And oh, I hope so too! I rather miss living in LA (actually it was the Valley, but close enough).
And no, we haven't met, nor danced. And I haven't sung for you, but Jeff Harlan once promised we'd sing Mustang Sally as a duet.

In my VCR:  tapes to tape tonight's shows, "Ghost Whisperer," "Las Vegas" (a guilty pleasure ;)), "Doctor Who" and "Battlestar Galactica."  I am ushering tonight for the Warren Miller movie again.  I worked concessions last night but I didn't watch any of it.  I will get to watch some of it tonight.

In my DVD player:  "Grey Gardens."  I was thinking that I might've been able to watch it a few days ago, but it didn't happen.

In my CD player:  "Grey Gardens."  I listened to it yesterday and want to hear it again.

DVD - Dinosaurs, the Complete First and Second Seasons.  I just finished watching the first season yesterday.  A warm-hearted family sit-com... if a show about reptiles, which are cold-blooded, can be warm-hearted.

I promise I won't keep repeating the show's catch-phrase, "Not the Momma!"


Car CD player - some Mario Frangoulis on our way up to pick up the grandlads from school, and the London Cast of Mary Poppins as we went from Dover to their home.

Post by: S. Woody White on November 03, 2006, 04:02:29 AM
Speaking of the grandlads, their table manners have deteriorated alarmingly.  Not that their table manners were all that great before, but when der B and I took them to a fairly nice buffet restaurant we've been to before, all they really wanted to do was blow bubbles in their sodas and egg each other on with talk about poop and fart noises.  I'm amazed they ate anything at all.  It was like they were both on sugar rushes or something.

They are very different from each other, however, something their Magic Mommy doesn't seem to understand.  Sure, Alex gets great grades, something that comes to him naturally.  But, just because William isn't following exactly in his brother's footsteps doesn't mean he's stupid.  William is the one with the fantastic imagination, which makes him just as smart, if not smarter, in my book.  Fortunately, they've both got great teachers (part of why we picked them up at school was so that der Grampa could meet with said teachers).

Good morning, all!  Before I head to Oxford, Ohio, I have a dozen errands to run with my dad.  He's come so far from last June, that I'm really happy.  Of course, after being with him for an hour in the car, I'll want to kill him and throw his body to the side of the road.

DR FJL, the 18th is definite?  Excellent!  No, I don't mind Rebecca knowing.  I'll email her before I go so that she'll put my name on the backstage lsit.

DR Jane, they don't ALL die in the end of the book, but theArthurian legend doesn't end very happily for anybody.  I think I still like THE ONCE AND FUTURE KING better than MISTS OF AVALON, but it was sure a good read.  I also liked Steinbeck's unfinished adaptation of Mallory.

BK, not having a musical director around to drum harmonies into your cast's heads is a disadvantage.  He should be around working music while you're working on something else.

TOD:  I brought four CDs with me: GISELLE, ZIGEUNERBARON, CARMEN, and Mr Kimmel singing the entire score and several outtakes of "The Brain."  I listen to them in my car's DVD player.

S.C. Man Gets 20 Years for Trying to Dig Up Girl's Corpse to 'Take Her Home and Have Fun'
Thursday , November 02, 2006
 
YORK, S.C. — A 23-year-old Clover man who police say tried to dig up the grave of a 12-year-old girl after seeing her picture in an obituary has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Bryan Nicholas Garcia never did find the girl's grave and told investigators he wanted to "take her home and have fun," Clover Police Lt. Randall Horn said.

Garcia pleaded guilty but mentally ill Wednesday to two charges of destruction of a graveyard. Circuit Judge John Hayes sentenced Garcia to 20 years in prison and ordered him to register as a sex offender.

Two mental evaluations found Garcia has a chemical imbalance in his brain that makes him want to have sex with corpses and children, defense attorney John Rhea said.

Garcia hasn't decided whether to appeal, Rhea said.
Garcia was arrested in May 2005 after running through a grocery store where he once worked in a full-length green coat, black sweater, camouflage gloves and a mask.

Officers searching his car found a black plastic bag, shovels, a pickax and other digging tools, prosecutor Dan Hall said.

Garcia then told police he was embarrassed because he had been trying to dig up the girl's grave, Hall said.
"He had seen the name of a little girl in the obituaries in the paper," Hall said. "He thought she was cute and he wanted to take her home."

Deputies went to the cemetery and found a hole about 3 feet deep. Garcia told them he dug at the cemetery twice, but never located the girl's body, Hall said.
Garcia, who was a National Merit Scholar at York High School, told the girl's family he was sorry. "I apologize to anyone I've hurt with my actions," he said.
Clover is about 20 miles southwest of Charlotte, N.C.

A few things come to mind:

20 years in prison for digging a hole is ridiculous!

I doubt any prison time will act as a deterrent to future criminals.

On the surface it would seem the guy is a certifiable nut! Why don't we tuck him away in a humane institution where he can at least get some treatment?

Did this guy have an adequate defense? - something our system should grant to the most egregious creep.

Der Brucer - our current criminal justice system has nothing to do with deterrence, it is only about retribution.  Because mental health is so underfunded  for some the only way to get mental health treatment is in prison, being sent to a facility without a conviction isn't in the budget.

Ain't it the truth....and yes DR MATTH is correct, he states AGAIN his opinion of Miss Tierney.  And it ain't nice.

I can only say in her defense, she was doing a difficult role, she didn't have a particularly pleasant or supportive home life at the time, and probably the last thing on her mind was being pleasant to a kid she had to kill...  Hickman also stated that she was impossible to Cornel Wilde....so she was an equal opportunity bitch.

My guess is that when Zanuck wired the director that the lake scene was GREAT, he wasn't necessarily referring to Hickman....Tierney was in the scene, too.

Give me Dwayne anyday...his commentary with Michael Callan on CAT BALLOU is very funny.  ;D

I think I'm going to pass on getting into this discussion.  I could go on about recidivism rates in murderers etc, but I won't.  ;)

What I've been wondering about lately are a string of fathers killing their wives or girlfriends (ie mother of children), the children and then themselves.  There have been a lot of them lately, at least around the midwest. The most recent I read about was a deputy sheriff who was exhibiting no symptoms of having problems. If they hate life and want to leave it, why not kill themselves and let everyone else live? This is something I just don't understand.

I'm stopping back in before I head to Miami Universitywhere I shall terrify the students from ever pursuing a career in the performing arts.

I had a lovely morning with my dad.  We first went to the DMV for him to get his new driver's license and register his vehicles.  I sincerely doubt he will ever be behind the wheels again (oy!) but I support anything that gives him a reason to thrive.  The poor man's deaf as a post, so when the DMV clerk asked him to read the column on the right, he responded with something like "what is it, fish?"  He needs new bifocals, so his right lens is shot to hell, his left lens is fine, but I really doubted he'd get a new license.  Well, he did!  All his vehicles are now registered and we are thrilled.

Next, a trip to the pharmacy for some refills.  That went smoothly, so we went out to see how the new hospital they're building not far from his property was progressing.  The property can only go up in value because of its prime near-hospital site, so he'll make a nice bundle when it sells.  From there, the post office, and now he's safely hme and I'm off to Miami U.

The whole trip was a good time for both of us.  I hope there will be many more.  He's already thinking about renewing his license in three years when he turns 88!

DR MattH, that was Alan Tudyk last night?  I missed the cast credits.  I saw him last year in SPAMALOT, and he was wonderful (Lancelot, as I recall).

DR MattH, that was Alan Tudyk last night?  I missed the cast credits.  I saw him last year in SPAMALOT, and he was wonderful (Lancelot, as I recall).

Yes, it was Alan. I, too, saw him in SPAMALOT and was wildly impressed with him (and his physique which was gorgeous). We got to see those muscular arms several times last night. Yum!

 TV Week (http://www.tvweek.com/news.cms?newsId=11008)

ABC Wins Wednesday; CBS's 'Criminal Minds' GainsBy James Hibberd
CBS's crime drama "Criminal Minds" continued to gain steam Wednesday night, becoming the first scripted program to top ABC's "Lost" in total viewers and matching its best adults 18 to 49 delivery, according to Nielsen Media Research. The 9 p.m. drama's 5.0 rating helped CBS take second place for the night, along with 10 p.m.'s "CSI: NY" (5.4) and 8 p.m.'s "Jericho," which matched its lowest season-to-date performance (3.0).

But the  Charlotte Observer (http://www.charlotte.com/mld/charlotte/living/style/15917190.htm?source=rss&channel=charlotte_style) (wherever that is 8) says:

Quote
Critics stumped -- `Criminal Minds' no loser
Up against the popular `Lost,' CBS drama steadily gaining viewers
SCOTT COLLINS
Los Angeles Times

HOLLYWOOD - CBS's "Criminal Minds" is a gory, creepy, serial-killer show. It's dissed by critics as a stapled-together knockoff of the network's many other crime dramas. Its mirth-free tone is epitomized by Jason Gideon, the grumpy, taciturn FBI profiler played by Mandy Patinkin. And it's up against the ultimate water-cooler show at 9 p.m. Wednesdays, ABC's mythologically complex "Lost."

Yup, conventional wisdom would dictate that "Criminal Minds," in its second season, should be moldering on TV's rubbish heap.

So why is the series growing into a bona-fide hit that last week delivered its most-watched episode, with 16.8 million total viewers, just a shade behind the still-formidable "Lost" (17.1 million), according to Nielsen Media Research?

GO MANDY!

Friday morning greetings!  Thanks to my wussburgering last night, I'm much refreshed and back at work.  It's a catch-up day at my desk before an all information-waitressing day tomorrow.

TOD - nothing in particular at the moment, but last night I had DH Richard move a bunch of chick flicks to the top of our Netflix list.  He's off tomorrow for his week at Nashotah House, so I'll watch them while he's gone.

Right now, courtesy of my iPod, Bryn Terfel is singing Welsh in my ears.

Der Brucer ... Because mental health is so underfunded  for some the only way to get mental health treatment is in prison, being sent to a facility without a conviction isn't in the budget.  
This guy pled guilty but insane, that's great where you can do it, he will get treatment

Are you sure? There was a recent case that caused a lot of commotion over at "The Factor" where the judge sent the convicted sex-offender out on probation because he would not receive treatment in prison. (The state appealed, the prison system agreed to provide treatment, and the judge changed his sentence to imprisonment).

...ummmm...how about a person who suggests proper clothing for people to wear?

(i.e., "Whenever he felt the compulsion, he would approach the clueless and intimate apparel that would be more flattering on them...")

The "Think Pink" song from "Funny Face" is sort of what the songs would be like if it were to be musicalized.

For instance, "Nice Tie":

[Patter}
"Nice tie"
"'scuse me?
"Nice tie"
"No tie!"
"Oh! My!"
"Must tie"
"But Why"....and so forth....intimating, as it were, a piece of apparel that SHOULD be on the person's body at the time.

"Nice Bra", for example, for those who actually need one.

Teen Points BB Pistol at the Wrong Car

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) -- A teenager pointed his BB pistol at the wrong car. The car stopped and the two men inside pulled out their real .40-caliber Glock handguns. They were undercover police driving an unmarked car.

They ordered Ryon Shelton, 15, of Cedar Rapids, to drop his gun, police said.

"They thought it was a real gun," police Lt. Kenneth Washburn said. "He dropped the gun and attempted to run and was apprehended."

Shelton told officers he was "just playing around" and trying to scare people during the Halloween night incident, police said.
   
He was cited for assault while displaying a dangerous weapon and released to relatives, police said.

This might answer your question, JR.

Intimate Apparel (http://www.lacitycollege.edu/public/news/intapparel.htm)

I saw the show when it played in New York. It was part of Roundabout's Off-Broadway season a couple of years ago. I thought it was quite good.

Here is a more full synopsis. The blurb is more a press release announcing the show. It just mentions in passing the plot.

Imagine yourself an African-American woman in 1905 when the cut and color of one’s dress – and, of course, skin – determined whom one could and could not marry, sleep with, even talk to in public. Esther, a black seamstress, lives in a boarding house for women and sews intimate apparel for clients who range from wealthy white patrons to prostitutes. Her plan is to find the right man and use the money she’s saved to open a beauty parlor where black women will be treated as royally as the white women she sews for. The Hasidic shopkeeper from whom she buys cloth holds her heart and she his, but the impossibility of the match is obvious to them both. The other man is George, a lonesome Caribbean man with whom she corresponds. Will her dreams come true? Or must she refashion her dreams and make them anew from the whole cloth of her life’s experiences? An engaging and moving work, Intimate Apparel is the most produced play in American regional theatre during the last two years. Why? Nottage's play is filled with sharp dialogue, an attractive historic setting, keen insights into class and race relations, and a strong, sympathetic heroine.

der Brucer



Actually you can't give incompetent defense a pass.  Being a defense lawyer, nothing bothers me more.  We are the ones who stand between the government and the citizens accused of crime. If you don't want to do it right, get another job.

I don't know the case.  I can tell you that the mood in the country and in most prosecution offices - well at least federal - is to get everyone you can with them most serious offense you can and give them the most time you can.  

There are very good prosecutors out there who use reason and common sense and understand that although someone can be techincally guilty of an offense, their circumstances make that particular case different from other cases. But, that sensibility is becoming the exception rather than the rule, which it seemed to be when I started doing this 20 years ago.  This is important because there has been a shift away from giving the discretion at sentencing to a judge and toward giving that power to prosecutors through the way the charge an offense.  If an offense is charged that has a minimum of some sort and a person is technically guilty of it - there is nothing a judge can do, and absent winning an acquittal, nothing a defense lawyer can do either.  

Now - I know I am generalizing, but this is my view. Many prosecutors today are young. They have never had a real person as a client, (a victim isn't a client, it's a witness, so they don't have the same relationship and often only see them maybe once or twice - not at all like TV) so they tend to not make the human connection between the names on the paper and the person they have the power to give another chance to or send away for essentially the rest of his or her life and the family members, community members etc who will be effected by whatever happens to that person. Many view it more as a game of wits between lawyers. I can't tell you how many times I've heard "You got me this time, but I'll win the next one"

As far as the insanity issue, in many jurisdictions, you can be very mentally ill and not be considered insane.  To be insane you have to not know the difference between right and wrong and not be able to conform your behavior to those standards.  And if you know what a judge does, what a prosecutor does, what a defense lawyer does and what you are accused of - you are considered competent. Many who probably are insane are medicated by the time of trial and jurors don't believe it because the person seems quite normal sitting in the court room.

The problem with the insane label or the incompetent label is that you can end up being locked in a mental health facility for a much longer period of time than you would be if you simply went to prison on the charge.

I don't know if that answers your question.  I guess the short answer is in my opinion the criminal justice system has lost a lot of humanity and in cases, such as the one you pointed out, may be causing more harm than doing good.  

Of course there are people who do truly reprehensible things on purpose etc but those are easy cases to understand the penalties imposed, I'm not talking about those.

PICCOLO: the minute dimensions of this weapon make it especially lethal as it is easily concealed and can be set off just about anywhere.

As a solo weapon, this device emits a high-pitched squeal that directly targets the inner ear. The application of this tone temporarily disorients its intended victim rendering him unable to react. The natural reaction of covering one's ears to reduce the intense pain causes military personnel within a 100 yard radius to drop their weapons leaving them defenseless to further attack.

Applied in concert with a second piccolo of slightly higher or lower pitch, the weapons produce the effect of an ice pick through the eardrum and may cause profuse bleeding of the aural cavity. These weapons are constructed in three forms; metal, composite materials, wood, or any combination of the three. The all-metal piccolos are especially lethal.

The only countermeasure to this weapon is to apply psychological warfare in the following manner. Compliment the musician on her: clothes/hair/shoes. This will distract the musician(s) from emitting her deadly tones and cause her to gab endlessly about herself.

This in itself takes us to another problem man has dealt with for a thousand years and to which there is no antidote. Good Luck!

"An old Moravian flute player once told me a story that went like this: ‘A very important king hired a whole orchestra to play for him one night during his supper, just because he felt lonesome. The orchestra played great, and the king was so delighted that he said, ‘Boys, your music was great, and just for that, you can all go to my counting house and fill your instruments with gold pieces.’

Evangelical leader steps down amid allegations
The Rev. Ted Haggard denies a man's public charges that the pastor of a mega-church had been paying him for sex.
By Stephanie Simon
Times Staff Writer

November 3, 2006

DENVER — The president of the National Assn. of Evangelicals resigned Thursday after his Colorado Springs, Colo., mega-church opened an investigation into allegations that he had repeatedly paid for sex with a male prostitute.

The Rev. Ted Haggard, who regularly consults with the White House on policy matters, told a Denver television station that he "never had a gay relationship with anybody" and had been faithful to his wife of 28 years.

[I believe him. Trading dollars for a BJ with a whore is not a relationship.]

A father of five who dresses in blue jeans and drives a Chevy pickup, Haggard is well-known, and widely praised, as an energetic, charismatic pastor who has pushed to expand evangelical

A lengthy profile in Harper's magazine — which is quoted approvingly on Haggard's website — recounts how he built New Life Church in part by hanging out at gay bars and inviting the patrons to come to his sermons and be saved.

[If I had a buck for every time I heard "I’m not queer, I'm just writing a book" I'd own a tropical island!]
...
Under Haggard's leadership, the National Assn. of Evangelicals, which has 30 million members, reaffirmed a policy statement that describes homosexuality as "a deviation from the Creator's plan" and calls same-sex relations a sin that, "if persisted in … excludes one from the Kingdom of God."

[And no doubt, puts them in the Ninth Circle along side the Elmer Gantry preacher-hypocrites that solicit sex from prostitutes ]
...

"We owe it to him to hear from him," Cizik said. "Let's not crucify the man until we've gotten the facts."

[I'll supply the hammer and nails!][size]

Evangelical Leader Accused of Gay Affair Resigns
By CATHERINE TSAI, AP

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Nov. 3) - The president of the National Association of Evangelicals, an outspoken opponent of gay marriage, has given up his post while a church panel investigates allegations he paid a man for sex.

The Rev. Ted Haggard resigned as president of the 30 million-member association Thursday after being accused of paying the man for monthly trysts over the past three years.

Church member E.J. Cox, 25, called the claims "ridiculous."
"People are always saying stuff about Pastor Ted," she said. "You just sort of blow it off. He's just like anyone else in the public eye."
[Seems some other things are getting "blown" off!]

Haggard, 50, was appointed president of the evangelicals association in March 2003. He has participated in conservative Christian leaders' conference calls with White House staffers and lobbied members of Congress last year on U.S. Supreme Court appointees after Sandra Day O'Connor announced her retirement.

From a Conservative Newsletter (http://patriotpost.us/pub/06-44_Digest-print.htm)

Quote
Republicans have, however, focused their efforts on a constitutional amendment—that’s an amendment to the Constitution —when existing law has already decided the homosexual “marriage” issue smartly. They have touted an under-funded, over-hyped and possibly “virtual” border fence that should do a fine job of keeping dangerous Americans from sneaking into Mexico. Last and quite possibly least, Republicans have banned the export of horsemeat for human consumption, thus eliminating one of our most satisfying exports to France.

Glad to see that even in the darkest hours, some keep a sense of humor.

The original production used a 27 member cast, and a 27 member full orchestra. This new production has merely ten cast members. To make things slightly more interesting, they are also the pit.

Next I watched ROBERTA from the Astaire-Rogers box. ROBERTA has never looked very good on TV showing, and this transfer has some light scratches and is grainier than I would have expected. Fred and Ginger don't get to do as much together as they do in their other starring vehicles of the time. Ginger, however, is so glamorous and chic in the movie that she makes poor Irene Dunne look plain in comparison to her.

Ginger comes out in a gold lame gown during the first version of "I Won't Dance," and she is simply stunning. The number turns into a solo for Fred, of course, and we never see GInger in that dress again, but she is a real knockout in it.

I hate to admit it, but I do prefer the 1952 version of ROBERTA entitled LOVELY TO LOOK AT more than this version. Though at their best Astaire and Rogers are unbeatable as a team, I have to admit that Marge and Gower Champion's dance version of "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" in LOVELY TO LOOK AT is head and shoulders above Fred and Ginger's version in this film.

I finished my afternoon's viewing with "Stalit Days at the Lido," an early Technicolor short on the ROBERTA disc.

Obviously Natalie Kalmus made sure there was plenty of blue in this short to show that three strip Technicolor could reproduce blue beautifully (two strip Technicolor couldn't produce blue). Second and third tier stars of the time like Cliff Edwards, Arthur Lake, Buster Crabbe, Ben Turpin, Johnny Mack Brown, Francis Lederer, and others make appearances, and we even see a quick shot of Gable with his much older wife Rhea seated at a table.

OK...I'm sorry if I've posted these lyrics before. They are from Roy Zimmerman, a political singer/songwriter in the tradiiton of Tom Lehrer---biting wit and supernal wordplay.

I think many DR's would enjoy his song, "Defenders of Marriage".  

Here's a snippet from his website, www.royzimmerman.com:

http://snipurl.com/defenders

and the lyrics:

Defenders of Marriage
words and music by Roy Zimmerman
© 1998 Watunes (BMI)
(From Comic Sutra - Live at Luna Park)

Every time we think about same-sex marriage
Makes us sick to our guts
I mean, two people who want to commit to a stable monogamous life-long relationship
What are they, nuts?
It's unnatural!
Now a man should not lie with a person who is a guy
He should only lie to his wife, the bible is clear
We're —
Defenders of marriage
In three-button suits
We'll raise our double standard and see who salutes
Defenders of marriage
Defending the institution against people who want to get married

Every time we hear about same-sex parents
"Oh, my gosh!" we exclaim
I mean, two people who want to provide a protective and nurturing family environment
Have they no shame?
It's so deviant!
It's the Lord's holy word, as my second wife said to my third
That a family's based on obligation and fear
We're —
Defenders of marriage
Connubial narcs
Ever vigilant and patriotic patriarchs
Defenders of marriage
Defending the institution against people who want to get married

One summer evening when my woman was doing laundry
I shared a six-pack with an old John Bircher
And oh so wisely he imparted an ancient quandary, to ponder
He said, "It's nature versus legislature."
Spoken: Are people born gay, or do they turn gay just to piss off Dick Armey?

We're an army of dicks
With a militant stance
Let's get the government out of our lives and into our pants
Defenders of marriage
Defending the institution against people who want to get married
And have their insurance carried
And be beneficiary'd
And be next to the ones they love when they are buried

Or, possibly, they (many of them) fear an ultra-high standard of commitment and adherence to vows and family values that they would be hard-pressed to live up to.

Oppression exists because someone who might change the status quo and shift power from the "ins" has emerged and declared himself or herself.

The 33-year-old actor said he was motivated to disclose his sexuality because of recent "speculation and interest in my private life and relationships."

Harris stars on the CBS comedy "How I Met Your Mother." He started on TV as a teen, playing the namesake doctor on the series "Doogie Howser, M.D."

Those are the sounds eminating from my poor wracked body, after 9 hours of lifting and carrying parts and components around all day and packing things.

I must definitely go fall over soon, and get ready for the same thing all over again tomorrow.

Good night, Esteemed and dashing BK--

...good night Lucy, you red-headed temptress....

Good night lovely H/Ks .  :)

Had a very full evening of viewing and managed to get all the shows from last night watched plus two from tonight.

I began with MY NAME IS EARL, a funny outing with Roseanne as special guest star playing a woman Earl once tricked into thinking he was God. Roseanne is not the best actress in the world, but she can be funny.

On a happier note, in 5 days the election will be over and the political ads will be off the air!

AMEN!!

They are really annoying me!

I watched THE OFFICE next, probably the season's best episode to date in which Michael and the other staffers went to a Diwali celebration. SOme got into the spirit of the night; others were ducks out of water and completely inappropriate. Very funny and poignant, too, with some events that occurred involving a marriage proposal gone sour.

Then came the first new episode of VANISHED in over a month. For a serialized drama like this, I was afraid I would have forgotten too many plot details to get back into it, but I had a surprisingly easy time, and the episode ended up being quite dramatic and close in tone to a '24' episode. The program probably won't last to get all 13 of its episodes broadcast, but I thought tonight's show was worthy enough to see the show to a conclusion.

How about tiramisushi?

Interesting dish Ron...

I like both tiramisu  and sushi but not together. WE finally got a sushi bar not too long ago in North Dakota..

SMALLVILLE came next with Clark fighting another escapee from the Phantom Zone. Good action and another turning point for Clark reached by the end of the episode.

SUPERNATURAL had a tense episode involving H.H. Holmes, America's first serial killer. I had thought the producers were working in a love interest for Dean, but, at least, on the basis of this episode, perhaps not the person I was expecting the love interest to be.

And I ended the evening with LAW & ORDER, the episode based on the Mel Gibson incident of a few months ago. Of course, once we got past the drunkeness and racist talk, the story spun into a murder and cover-up which (I don't think) was based on the Mel Gibson incident.

Still, it had some powerful stuff in the hour though I'm not sure Chevy Chase was the best person to have been chosen for the celebrity under the influence.

LOS ANGELES - Neil Patrick Harris is gay and wants to quell any rumors to the contrary. "(I) am quite proud to say that I am a very content gay man living my life to the fullest," Harris tells People magazine's Web site.

The 33-year-old actor said he was motivated to disclose his sexuality because of recent "speculation and interest in my private life and relationships."

Harris stars on the CBS comedy "How I Met Your Mother." He started on TV as a teen, playing the namesake doctor on the series "Doogie Howser, M.D."

Many of us knew this already, but I'm pleased Neil felt the need to set the record "straight" once and for all.

I wondered about that. I thought he was great on Broadway in Cabaret!

Just came home from being at a 7 hour party at an edit place that used to be my home base, celebrating their 30th anniversary. It was the first place I was allowed to edit. Had they not been so generous with their projects, (the owner/filmmaker had always cut his own projects in the past) I might not have been a working editor today. I'm so grateful to him for giving me that opportunity. There was a lengthy montage of stuff I had edited in the past, including our Olympic bid film, lots of PBS stuff, etc. It was like my life flashing before my eyes and I felt all weepy.

I was also nostalgic because this was the building where I met my soulmate while working on a friend's film, and also where I attended the life-changing Halloween party. It was great to see all those old film folks!

Alone...so alone...

I had TFNM CD for my driving music. It's amazing how much of the melodies and lyrics of these songs I remembered from only seeing the movie once, a few decades ago. That's the mark of a good song! And I love Grant's contributions, too. Nice!

MBarnum-Since I can’t find my autographed photo, I’m beginning to doubt my memory that Darryl Hickman was my father’s patient.


I found autographed photos to me from three hunks, Jack Kelly, Clint Walker, & the one I had a crush on…
”To Jane
Best Gal
Ty Hardin
Bronco”



Jane, I thought it was Peter Brown you had a crush on! Boy you were a fickle girl! LOL!

By the way I interviewd two of the kids from Fury...Roger Mobley and Jimmy Baird...but your autograph is probably the main star Bobby Diamond...or is it?
