Mr. March

I may have a small role in a local stage production - the father in "Little Women".  I have to read for the role on Monday evening.

The father's an important character in some ways, but the young women are the stars.

Since I've really been a dad,
could my performance be that bad?

Quip and a Slip

President-Elect Obama today was asked whether he had sought advice from former presidents about his new responsibilities. And he made a little funny about it:
In terms of speaking to former presidents, I've spoken to all of them that are living....I didn't want to get into a Nancy Reagan thing about, you know, doing any seances.
Then he had to call up Nancy to apologize.  Because she never had a seance in the White House.  Astrologer, yes.  Seance, no.

It was Hillary who used a spiritual advisor to have an imaginary talk with Eleanor Roosevelt.

Still, I'm glad he's not inclined
to conversations of that kind.
