Spent today in a meeting with my counterparts from the television side of our operation. It's always a challenge, first to stay awake since no one schedules meetings around my work hours, and second not to strangle anyone.

I kept my hands off the necks within reach, kept my eyes open and suppressed powerpoint presentation inspired yawns. I subsequently managed to get through the meeting and even found new ways to restate the same things I've said during the past 11 months of meetings. Of course I received multiple assurances that my ideas were substantive, brilliant and imminently implementable.

I didn't receive assurance that they would be implemented, but one can't aim too high.

I pray one day for the collective revelation that most of our issues could be resolved by holding fewer day.
