Glad they found only a small speck and are dealing with it well!
As for me I'm back home - largely at my insistence, not wanting to stay in hospital a moment more than necessary. so good to be home. Hard to get up, hurts to move or breath but it's ok - have attentive care and cheerful companionship .
It may be that Sam Waterson inhabits the character of Charlie Skinner the way Jerry Orbach took possession of Detective Lennie Briscoe of the original Law & Order and made it his own. I really enjoy the different sides of Charlie and I'm willing to bet that Waterson is having an absolutely terrific time playing him. The shame is that we have to wait until June to watch him again.
Just got up this AM and rewatched The Best of Charlie Skinner, just for fun ... and found the attached in the related videos. It's a different side of Charlie Skinner, a part of him that is as necessary as the amiable drunk. Indeed, I think it's the part that makes the amiable drunk work BETTER, never mind that it at least partially rounds out what is a wonderful character.
Well, if I didn't rewrite it more aimed at Francis I, it's because I don't know much about him, though there is some new dirt coming out more recently. It may be that when I learn more about ol' Jorge that I will be inspired to put something down which is more steered toward him, but for now, I think I'd like to leave my "Habemus Papem" piece as it is.
If you come up with something of your own about Francis, do let me know.
Found a video based on the words of Sam Harris and posted it here. I thought it was pretty profound, but I'm hardly getting any views on it ... and I wasn't sure you had seen it so ... have a look, please!
