I love Broadcast News! Such a brilliant and underrated film! Thanks for making me think of it.

If making a great living, doing what you love, doing something that matters were that easy, everyone would be doing it. I know I would! Many people who espouse this give themselves as examples…and they are often self-help gurus (Wayne Drier, Tony Robinson…). That is where the money is...taking it from other poor saps in seminars.

I LOVE Broadcast News. There's a line in it for almost every situation in life, including, "Let me know if I can do anything for you, anything at all..." "Well, I certainly hope you'll die soon." HA!

Hey, I'd best wait a bit before advertising my services in giving nonfiction readers' advisory seminars, huh? :) I know just what you mean, though. And I've got nothing against the Internets, but let's face it, I'd guess it's put more actual people out of work than it has employed.
