My Kind of Guys
Don't miss the play reading of 8 this weekend. It's free. It's online. It's got George Clooney and Brad Pitt in it. They lost out on winning the Oscar last weekend... but who cares, these guys have more important things to worry about... like gay rights.

Mark your calendars for Saturday night March 3rd at 7:30 PM Pacific time/10:30 Eastern. V
isit and watch the live streaming of the play 8.

Clooney and playwright Dustin Lance Black
8 is about the recent court case overturning Prop 8 in California.

The play is by Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black ("Milk"). The cast is solid -- including Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jane Lynch, Kevin Bacon, Martin Sheen and many more.

It's also a fundraiser for American Equal Rights. Now you may think this play is way too political... too one-sided... too propaganda... maybe so, but tune in anyway. It's a play worth hearing no matter where you stand on gay rights today. It's the issue defining our times -- in our military, churches, states and in our families. It's history in the making.

Hopefully it's a good play. Good plays make us think. Ponder. Question.

So tune in. Who knows? Maybe Angelina Jolie might make a surprise appearance as the court clerk.

Until next time.

Hi M,
Great hearing from you. Sure, email me about the process. I just met with a friend for lunch about her writing -- she's fairly new to it -- and the biggest concern for her was finding time to write working full-time. I can relate to that these days. We just have to park it and write it. Email when you can. Congrats on finishing your kid's book and getting it out there. You will find the right agent -- just keep at it.
CC says hi. We're renovating so she's hammering tiles off the bathroom wall. LOL. Have a great wknd!
