      Lately I’ve been very busy blogging about every subject
      under the sun, I know to one who is not one, blogging can seem like taking only
      a few minutes to post, in reality that is all it takes, not the weeks of prep,
      research and thought that govern the most successful postings. So, its little
      wonder I fell a little behind my DVR viewing from which I glean most of my posted
      subjects. Finally, I got caught up to the CBS News Sunday Morning program to the
      day of the Tony awards, that featured most subjects that was flavored with most
      aspects of “show business”, like, acting, singing, wigging. make-up, dancing,
      music and lyrics, directing, lighting, costuming, staging, writing, book
      adaptation, and most importantly, “journalism”…

            Tony Awards... WHO CARES!!! As a guy who takes in at least five shows a year... WHO CARES ABOUT ACTORS VOTING AWARDS FOR THEMSELVES!?! Worse that the Oscars because it’s a much smaller audience.

            How is this different from tech gurus voting themselves awards at the end of every year?

            Or food services? Or Uber? Or Porn “stars”?

                      This is ok, but NPH was so great I want him to do it again.

                      I’m not disparaging this offering but it’s not what we need.

                                              It looks like a copy of Neil Patrick Harris his opening a few years ago! And that was brilliant! This was.... not original.. sorry
