Nothing like getting a dose of reality when you learn that a figure larger than life, Sydney Pollack, director, actor, writer, died nine months after learning he had cancer. He was 74. Way too young. Of course it was kept quiet in Hollywood. Maybe a few knew.
Makes you wonder what tomorrow is going to be like. Am I doing what I like today? What have I put off? Who did I piss off?
Sydney had so much to live for. Lived the life of several men. Yet to many of us, it was not enough.

Don't Sue Sue Simmons


After 28 years as a local anchor for NBC 11pm news, Sue finally screwed up. She used the "F" word on air when the guy in charge of TV screen shots that coincides with the story being told broadcasted the wrong pix.

Everyone is talking about it today. Why? Cause Sue is Sweaky clean. Unblemished. Pure as pure can be.

All of her fans, including yours truly, truly hope NBC doesn't smack her with a big fine. Or worse yet, can her. They just might use this an an excuse to get rid of another big salary anchor.

That, in my opinion, would be a bad PR move. Everyone is human and Sue should be applauded for her consistency and continuity on air rather than one little bleep.
