Green Room - Week 31 - 2



I wrote one of those general "how is everyone doing" with a reference to the World Cup US gia controversy thrown in for anyone wanting to pick it out.

It wasn't much, just the usual generalized Green Room post that I do in order to get people talking *with each other*. Which is the point of the Green Room.

I could (and do) say just about anything, the less about anything specific, and the less about me, the better these things tend to go - as long as it gets you to respond, and get the ball moving.

But I have to change that today. Change it, as in delete most of the post and put something else up in it's place.

I *just* found out about the death of one of my favorite authors Jose Saramago
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/06/18/AR2010061805426.html

What a horrible day.

The wind was just knocked out of me.

I'm glad that mezzominity emailed me to let me know, because I would have hated just to come across that, or worse, NOT come across it until much later.

I hope you are all having a great weekend.

Remember, topics are due *Monday* this week. So that's one less day to get them in! http://community.livejournal.com/therealljidol/354881.html
