I read in the newspaper today that our own quilting Marie Osmond (by the way, I really LIKED Marie’s fabric lines but they didn’t get much press) is going back on daytime TV with another talk show. Well you can bet that it’s not going to be about quilting. Don’t think it’ll ever get mentioned. Not unless you want to hear remote controls clicking channels from coast to coast.
Before I continue, I want to say that I LOVE MARIE OSMOND. How can you NOT love Marie Osmond? I love everything about her. EVERYTHING! Always have. Always will. But she described her new show as a giving women a place to go to cry. Now here’s the quote: “It’s nice to have a destination to cry.” Surely the women of daytime TV America are not so screwed up that they have to turn on a television show to cry!

If you want a good cry all you’ll have to do is pick up a TV Guide and leaf through it. If a listing all of the terribly shitty programming that’s shoved down our throats every day and night won’t make you sob hysterically, then watching Marie’s show won’t even cause a moist eye.
NOTE TO MARIE: Find yourself a new producer and FAST! (and I’m only telling you this, sweetie, because you’re one of us).

Today I’m finishing up writing the next issue. It’s going to be a marathon weekend. The trip to California really took it out of me. That said, in looking over my notes, this should be another good issue.
