So, after you read this Tuesday morning, you get yourself to the polls and VOTE. Ladies, I will ask you to remember who backs and who opposes fair wages for both sexes. Just think about that before pulling a lever. Make your vote Well Dunne!
The emotional connection a viewer and listener feels with the talent is tantamount to building an audience, which is the goal of marketing people no matter what area of expertise they’ve chosen. When a talent passes away, and the viewer/listener feels loss, it’s another step toward making the world feel more hollow as well as a testament to the talent, a testament to the folks who brought that talent into our scope of knowledge. When TOMMY MAGLIOZZI passed away and NPR announced it yesterday, Monday went hollow. Cars are complicated and looking under the hood has, for some of us, been compared to reading Chinese when our native language is English. But Tommy and his brother Ray, known as Click and Clack the Tappit Brothers of NPR’s popular Car Talk show, not only educated non-mechanic types about cars, but also brought a lot of laughter to the world. Their weekend shows were more fun than car repair could ever seem to be. Tommy not only was a grad of MIT in engineering, he also got his doctorate in Marketing. Best of all, he had a laugh that was sublime. He will be terribly missed.
Have you heard or seen what has been happening at the Tower of London? 888,246 red ceramic poppies are being placed in the dry moat there; each one commemorates a British and colonial death during World War One. Entitled the Blood Swept Lands And Seas of Red exhibition, it is majestic, moving, personal and a sobering remembrance of the toll of war.
Think About This: “Laughter is wine for the soul – laughter soft, or loud and deep, tinged through with seriousness – the hilarious declaration made by man that life is worth living.” ~ Sean O’Casey
