Chinese New Year!
Rainy and cool
Happy Year of the Dog!!!
So our ever-lovin’ NY State Governor has a budget that will give regular working people a tax cut of 2% (provided they’re married), and the rich a cut of 9%. Why the heck isn’t that reversed? So sick of the rich getting more and more while the people who just work three jobs to survive continue to get their pockets picked by the politicians.
Tweaked four pieces and sent them out yesterday. Started to put the fixes into Clear the Slot, but only got the first four chapters done. Excavated my desk somewhat. Signed and sent off some contracts. Worked on the new text for the DE site – I keep working on it and then throwing it out. Worked on some pitches. Wrote Wednesday’s column for SDR.
In and around the other work.
Today will be another long day. I’m waiting to hear if I’m needed for a re-shoot on the television show tomorrow – if I am, I hope my call is late enough so I can leave from here.
Islanders finally won last night, thank goodness. They played well against the Bruins. Both teams worked very hard. Always makes for a more interesting game. Rangers beat Pittsburgh, too, so it’s all good.
The Situation weighs heavily on me and has gotten me way down. I know the solution, but I haven’t figured out a way to get there yet. I’m working on it, though, and that’s all I can do. But I’m very discouraged.
