Everyone in books, film and TV should heed this...

"I think that if you're going to do work that's important and lasts, then you owe the best of yourself. That doesn't just mean 'Hey, work hard and do your best.' Yeah, but it also means you have to project creativity, originality and, above all, humility."

--Bill Murray

I saw the interview when he said this. He was referring to his role as "Hunter S. Thompson" in "Where the Buffalos Roam." Peter Boyle, who just died, played the hippoe lawyer.

Are you planning to be the next Hunter S. Thompson? (smile)

Bill Murray was probably the most rounded and talented member of the Saturday Night Live cast, and he has proved it over the past 30 years. Chris will no doubt say it was Eddie Murphy or John Belushi, but I feel both of them were too over the top.

Chris--I finished "Hannibal Rising" based on your recommendation in your previous posts. I wasn't impressed. That is no attack on your tastes. Like James Patterson, Thomas Harris is "phoning in" work and living off past commercial success. Sadly, we know no better.
