Ha, looks like a great album.

You were probably just waiting for a chance to post that, weren't you? ;D I envision most Romantic era poets as rock stars. :D

It swam into my ken only just today ... courtesy of the nice lady who watches over the "Shelley And His Circle Collection" at the New York Public Library. Or, as we like to call it during baseball season ... Shelley and His On Deck Circle. (And that DOES sound like a rock band.) ;)

A Financial Plan That Comes With Mug Shots

Quote
By JOHN SCHWARTZ
Published: January 7, 2007

ONCE in a great while, an honest-to-goodness visionary shows up — someone who sees things in an utterly different way and helps to change our perspective as well.

Timothy J. Bowers is just such a man. His insights into the world of investing and retirement could reshape the way we look at the future. But you won’t find this giant in the case studies at Harvard Business School or sculpted in bronze on Wall Street.

That oversight could have something to do with the fact that Mr. Bowers is serving a three-year sentence for bank robbery in the Hocking Correctional Facility in Nelsonville, Ohio.

Plenty of people end up in prison when their plans for ill-gotten gain go awry. But getting rich from a robbery was not the goal of Mr. Bowers. Getting into prison was.

On May 1, Mr. Bowers — or, as he is known to the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, prisoner A535976 — handed a teller a stickup note, got four $20 bills and then handed them over to a security guard, telling the guard that it was his day to be a hero, according to accounts by The Columbus Dispatch and The Associated Press.

At his trial in October, he explained to the judge that he was about to turn 63 and had lost his job making deliveries for a drug wholesaler. He said that with only minimum-wage jobs available, he preferred to draw a three-year sentence, which would get him to age 66, when, he said, he could live off of Social Security. And that is what he got.

From the New York Times ... more in the link above.

While I was in New York I went to the taping of a talk show -the Dr Keith Ablow Show  8)
It's not Dr Phil or Dave Letterman -I was so mad  >:D we happened to be in front of CBS studios last Monday when people were waiting in line for the taping of the Late Show -BOY how I wish I had had a ticket that night  :-\

Anyway, I had never heard of Keith Ablow (he's a forensic psychologist) -and so did most of the people who went to the taping  ;D, but still I WENT TO THE TAPING OF A TALK SHOW *ahem*
What was fun is that they had to go ask people on the streets to come to the tapping -that's how I got my ticket. At one point during the show, people who had opened doors for us when we entered the building, people working there, members of the crew, sat with us pretending they were in the public. It was so empty I felt kinda bad for this Dr Keith. I even hurt my hands because they asked us to applaud twice as loud to make people in front of their TV's believe that we were 1000 (1000 is what they said, I mean come on! We were like 50 max in the studio!  :D :D)
I really don't know a thing about this talk show, but my guess is it has a pretty limited audience  ;D

It was about overweight actresses, by the way.

I got to see

Lindsay Hollister. She was one of the guests -the other actresses I had never heard about. I knew her because I watch Cold Case and watched Boston Public when it was still on, and she did make appearances on these shows. She seemed real nice.

"Does is the singular form of do"  :o No way!!  :D

This is what we talked about this morning for about 15 minutes in my editing class -far too long if you ask me, especially in a one-hour long class.

Oh and yeah, most of the people in this class are seniors.
One guy even asked if you should wrote "they weres" (yes, with an -s) or "they were".

Unbelievable.

Sorry, I have to say it... what's going on in Boston is just ridiculous. And I'm not talking about the people who are "responsible", I'm talking about the people who are "handling" the situation. This is just absolutely ridiculous.

Just plain idiocy.

Turner Broadcasting hired some guys to hang these light up signs of a "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" character around the town. They've been in several different cities across America for three weeks now and someone in Boston called it in and said it was a bomb. Boston went nuts, dispatched everyone, got the FBI involved and even "detonated" these "bombs". They've even shown the "bomb" at a press conference and the police were wearing gloves while holding it, I guess because it's radioactive.



It was just a lame marketing decision on Turner's side but Boston blew it all out of proportion as soon as they thought it was a bomb. Rather then play it calm and find out what it is first they went nuts. Now the two marketers have been arrested and are being charged with intentionally creating a panic and such. This is a quote form the Assistant Attorney General:

Quote
"It's clear the intent was to get attention by causing fear and unrest that there was a bomb in that location."

Riiiight. They've been in several cities for three weeks. You know the full story now of what was going on. But Boston can't admit they screwed up or they look like even bigger idiots. Everyone I've spoken too about this situation agrees that Boston acted like a bunch of morons. I was even watching some things on CNN and MSNBC and they pretty much agreed to that it was overblown. I agree that it was a stupid marketing decision and I agree that perhaps Turner should have notified the right people but come on. There was no reason to blow this out proportion so fast.

I don't know if some of you watched Dexter on Showtime -I absolutely loved that show  O0

Anyway ... I took screencaps for those of you who are interested. If you're not, that's OK, I just felt like sharing  :D
