Tina Fey as Sarah Palin
HILARIOUS! Tina Fey does a near-perfect impression of Sarah Palin. It's great.

She is stunning to observe - a creature of no compunction whatsoever. This is somehow misconstrued as confidence.
My favorite highlights from the Washington Post article (followed by link to article below):
"Palin limited her duties further by hiring a deputy administrator to handle much of the town's day-to-day management. Her top achievement as mayor was the construction of an ice rink, a project that landed in the courts and cost the city more than expected." ... "Arriving in office, Palin herself played down the demands of the job in response to residents who worried that her move to oust veteran officials would leave the town in the lurch. 'It's not rocket science,' Palin said, according to the town newspaper, the Frontiersman. 'It's $6 million and 53 employees.'" ... "She told city officials not to talk to reporters." ... "Palin also differed with the librarian, Mary Ellen Emmons. The Frontiersman reported at the time that Palin asked Emmons three times in her first weeks in office whether she would agree to remove controversial books. The librarian said she would not. The McCain campaign has confirmed Palin's questions but said that she never demanded removal of any specific books. Palin also fired Emmons on Jan. 30 but reinstated her after an uproar." ....

James - Thank you - I received my library card yesterday.
It caught my eye - and I did want to point out that, "... something that writes good on plastic ..." sounds like bad form "... something that writes well ..." ? Not sure - but it definitely sounds like there is a better way to phrase that one.

A fellow I'd known for since the mid-'90's from New England - we e-mailed sporadically and kept in touch w/ online after he moved to Atlanta.
His e-mail just bounced back to me that I'd sent for wishing him a happy birthday - imagine my surprise when looking up his band's site I found out the following:
Marc passed away in 2005.
Here's the story from the web. I was shocked - and wanted to share the story.
Fans of local music might know Marc as Soolaiman, the lead singer of the popular Atlanta Neil Diamond tribute band, Hot August Knights. According to an e-mail from his brother, Marc died last weekend of complications resulting from pneumonia. He was just 40.
Marc was a great performer and, in my admittedly few conversations with him, a kind, engaging and interesting man. You can see him performing as Soolaiman in the documentary Feel Neil by Atlanta director David Sarich.

... By the way - I will be searching for a VP. Minimal experience required. However, you must be able to make killer chocolate chip cookies and have fairly decent dental work. ~ Eric.
