Good Night and Good Luck

·

I've been exploring YouTube. At a suggestion from my wife I looked up this video clip from "Good Night and Good Luck;" George Clooney's film about Edward R. Murrow. In this closing speech he's talking about the television .... if he were alive today, amidst all the talk about things like MySpace, might he give the exact same speech ... about the computer?

Hi Jeanne,

It is powerful. My wife saw it before I did and made the connection to the computer -- she's a smart lady. ;-)

The school year is off to a great start but I still haven't found the time to catch up on some of my blog reading; like yours. ;-) I think I'm at the point where I just have to clear everything out of my aggregator and start fresh.

Hope your year is going well too.
