Hearts break all the time, and for many reasons. They heal, but each break leaves its mark. Some say those marks make one stronger. But for those whose heart has broken, the promise of eventual strength is not enough; comfort is required. To that end, please send comfort to 2C Media’s CHRIS SLOAN, whose lovely 7 year old, Calder, was taken from the earth in a devastating accident on Sunday. Calder was a bright light…a smile that will forever be seen in the mind’s eye…a very beloved brother and son. There are no words. So, please send the Sloan family your comfort. Should you be in the Miami area, there will be a gathering. Let me know and I’ll get you details. Baruch dayan emet.

Today’s not just Earth Day, it’s also the day CSD MIKE SPIECHA signs on a new look at ABC affiliate KTVX in Salt Lake. Mike and his team have been working like mad and the results will be delightful. Mike’s relatively new to the big creative chair, but he’s been doing marketing for the Nexstar affil quite some time before getting the promotion. Well Dunne! Spike.

Think About This: “There are some things in the world we can’t change – gravity, entropy, the speed of light, and our biological nature that requires clean air, clean water, clean soil, clean energy and biodiversity for our health and well being. Protecting the biosphere should be our highest priority or else we sicken and die. Other things, like capitalism, free enterprise, the economy, currency, the market, are not forces of nature – we invented them. They are not immutable and we can change them. It makes no sense to elevate economics above the biosphere.” ~ David Suzuki
