  1. Will HBO take a side trip from his annual Christmas vacation to the islands to take kim-chi with Kim Jung-on? Love that hot cabbage, Kim! How long was it buried? Was it next to your uncle’s corpse to it give it extra tang? Say, did the “corpse” men bury your uncle?

          1. I worked in television news for slightly longer than forty years, but it only seems much lengthier. My head became raw from beating it against walls, brick and otherwise, in dealing with anchors, reporters, producers, station managers and sales people, advertisers, et alii, trying to make them understand what passes for journalism since the 1970s should not be what collectively they wanted, thought it should or could be, or manipulated to reflect same, but should be presented for itself and opinions should be confined to clearly declared editorials.
            Naturally, I worked athwart the trade’s, for it is no profession, general aim and my departure was ugly.
            Yes, I am bald, not the least reason why I voluntarily left the anchor desk, but there is no nothing remotely regal about me.
            Thank you for your patience. As with most television types, I never use one word where several hundred may obscure.

  2. My grandfather was a WWII Vet. Everytime we would visit, sometime in conversation, He would ask, What book are you reading. After he served, he built his own one room library of books. During Hurricane Betsy it was distroyed.
    After reading the clip from CiscoKid, it seems we should all have a bit of books stored for the future.
