January 21, 2004
Had another sales person “resign” yesterday. Actually I felt fine about this one (I didn’t quite believe his hype). Besides we are approaching record territory with the ad team we have now, and considering the challenges they were faced with going into this issue, my hat’s way off to them.

Came home for lunch and bailed into Maniac scratchboards. I’ve worked up four, but it’s not there yet. Not in panic mode yet, but close. Need to schedule a cover session with Daniel on Thursday or Friday.

Corrine Brown was supposed to fly down from Denver today for a big editorial pow wow but she caught that flu that’s going around. She sent down some ideas and thoughts after attending the Denver Stock Show. We’ll go over them today.

Watched the president’s State of the Union address last night. Enjoyed it, mainly because every time Bush would say something, Kathy would yell out some flaming liberal retort (she was in the kitchen, where she belongs. Ha.). I also loved the three “photo op” soldiers they trucked in for the speech: A black guy, a woman and a white guy. The black guy started to yawn at one point (during a standing ovation!) but they cut him off. It appeared Bush had three teleprompters to go to during the speech: one in the middle, and one on either side. Having used one on my recent Westerns Channel shoot, I would give Bush high marks on being able to read.
