As I’ve discovered, writing relieves anxiety. It seems for cancer patients it works too. E. Gould’s essay, “Building Bridges” was selected for Memorial Sloan Kettering’s “Visible Ink” Anthology. Readings will be on April 5 in NY. Congrats to her on this and the beginning of her 3rd year as editor of MSKCC’s “Bridges” newsletter, Spring 2010 issue is out- cancer survivors and their family’s forum for sharing stories and support. Check it out.
Sam Bungey, Madman’s talented son is waiting for Obama in Australia. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews’ son got married in Philly over the weekend- son is film student at Tisch, new daughter-in-law at NYU Law. BTW I think Tim Russert’s son Luke does a really good job.
March madness. I agree with Eli Epstein, the purity, teamwork, emotion is so great to see in college basketball. These players think, pass, set up plays, it’s like Cousy and the old Celts. The games last weekend were as exciting as they get. Unfortunately, modern professional bball is as unentertaining as college basketball is riveting. Today’s pros just travel, jump, dunk, shoot. Borrrinnnggg.
Political Rant: Don’t let these guys get away with their talking points. Rudy Giuliani on Morning Joe rewriting history. Obama took over the banks, the car companies, wants to take over health care and your entire soul. Excuse me? Was he asleep when Bush did the bank and car company interventions? Where is the press, why don’t they push back more? Is Jon Stewart the only one who actually fact checks and calls people on false statements? OK, and Anderson Cooper. I don’t count bloviators on either end of the spectrum, O’Reilly or Olbermann, but c’mon journalists- where are you? Village Coffee Party in May?
