I don't understand how Grammar can support a party that has become so hateful toward gay people. John Mahoney and David Hyde-Pierce are gay and I know Kelsey is close to them. There isn't an option to be a Rockefeller Republican anymore. So how do you align yourself with people who despise your friends and co-workers?

Thank you for your . . . uh . . . patronage. The performance you were looking forward to is the one I would have preferred to see.

one great hollywood story i heard from my agent was about an argument that john wayne and john ford had on the set of one of their great collaborations. the gist of it was ford taking wayne to task for supporting republicans "when they are all committing to destroying the things that made you rich."

still, i worked with kelsey pre-cheers in san diego and he was a delight to work with and be around. there was a piano in the green room and he would keep us all amused playing and singing.

the victim mentality of conservatives is not something i find attractive. even when they win they still play the victim card.


We gave up on "Boss" about three episodes in, when the plot twists and complications became so absurd as to make a Three Stooges short look like an O'Neill drama.


Now there's a thought -- an O'Neill drama with the Three Stooges. I love the idea. Which play?

I use to like Frasier a lot, but I now find I cannot watch Grammer anymore, even in Frasier reruns, because I find his politics so offensive.
Oh well, there's lots of other funny stuff to watch.
If you ever get the chance to see a series called "Corner Gas", give it a try -- it was done in Saskatchewan and is about life in a small town. Easily as funny as Frasier ever was. Here's their "blog" scene:


I thought 'Frasier' was a big waste of talent. Never been a fan, and I get the problems with 'Boss', but Grammar is terrific. It's not history, it's not politics, it's 'Lear' for TV. And yes, only a Republican with 5 Emmies complains about not getting nominated. Sheesh.

Never seen "Boss." Don't get it on my cable setup. If he gets passed over for Emmy consideration, so do a lot of great performers. Grammer appears to be a typical Republican crybaby.
