Going in early to work. I'm covering part of a shift so an employee can get to a doctor's appointment, but I also need to do some work on a video game that will require a phone call to the tech support line...and they're in New York.
That three-hour time difference is a pain in the ass, sometimes.
Gary Graham, star of the Alien Nation TV show, comments here about President Obama's speech. He makes note of the following:
The President said today, following up on his speech before the joint session of Congress: “…because we know that business, not government, is the engine of growth in this country. It is entrepreneurship and industry that are the well-springs of an economy that has been the greatest force of progress and prosperity in human history.”
Huh? Did these words actually emanate from the mouth of one Barrack Obama today? One week after he signed a bill that evidences a completely opposite point of view? “Business, not government, is the engine of growth”?? Then why, may I ask, are we not letting business grow, instead of government?
If Graham, who says that he's a liberal, is having conservative thoughts...well, gee - he may never work in Hollywood again.
Speaking of those who act, Wendy Richard passed away at age 65 after a LONG bout with cancer. You may know her as Miss Brahms from Are You Being Served?, but she was also on EastEnders for twenty-one years.
Condolences to her family and friends. At least she's no longer suffering.
Okay, I'm outta here.
Be seeing you.
