The Week Ahead - at a Clip

We're going to try to keep this reasonably light this week. Last week was a tough one for our country. We have a gun problem. And we have a leadership problem. We need to repeal the Dickey Amendment and  allow the CDC to begin researching gun violence. 1624 Mass shootings in US in 1870 days ...as of 2/15/2018. When gun sales trump human lives, there is something very rotten in Washington. Please be a part of the change we so desperately need.

The Big O Question:

  or...  

For what it's worth, I think SHAPE OF WATER is lined up to make a big splash on Sunday night.

The Wrong Producer at the Wrong Time Award goes to:

Such a fabulous film, but #MeToo sounded the death knell on any Weinstein films this season.

NORTH BY NORTHEAST - 

Another revolutionary idea: this weekend's destination is zipcode 1776 - 

SUDBURY,  MA - founded 1639  

"There's just a few more hours. That's all the time you've got.

A few more hours. Before they tie the knot."

- My Fair Lady

Wedding bells Saturday in Sudbury (and with any luck, lobster rolls at Logan upon arrival Thursday).

Snow is forecast for Friday, so the Wayside Inn should look like it does above. Home by Sunday.

This part of the country is pretty fab, whatever the season. Whatever the reason.

ON THIS DAY - Feb 26th

  • 1907 US Congress raised their own salaries to $7,500
