this show is basically the soundtrack to my life.

You want to know what never gets old? Toby defending the National Endowment of the Arts.

"There is a CONNECTION between the progress of a society and progress in the ARTS! The age of Pericles was also the age of Phidias!"


Sigh. Self-righteous liberal intellectualism is just so hot.








please tell me i'm not alone.

I believe in supporting the arts--but I don't think the Piss Christ (crucifix in jar of urine) or the Vagina Monologues pass muster. Shakespeare in the Park? The King Tut exhibit? Yes!

Then again, as I have said before, nobody ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American public--as in the latest craze, the terrible movie The Room. Supposedly the worst movie ever made. People are lining up in droves to see it. I say, rent an Ed Wood movie instead, such as Plan 9 from Outer Space!

Dude. You're so alone. I mean, I've heard of Pericles, but Phidias? Who?

(But if by Toby you mean the guy on West Wing, I am so with you. If not, say, if you mean some actual real person, then pretend I didn't say anything).

Well Hubby and I are Libertarians, but I agree on principal-Hubby's intellect is definitely one of the top five things I like about him. We sometimes stay up entire nights talking politics (even though we have 3 kids who wake up at 630).

"At a time when the public is rightly concerned about the impact of sex and violence on TV, this administration is gonna to protect the Muppets, we're gonna protect Wall Street Week, we're gonna protect Live from Lincoln Center, and by God, we're gonna protect Julia Child!"

You're not alone...I love Toby!
