I took Friday off from work but did plan to blog here and there. Unfortunately, Typepad was jammed almost all of the day, so I couldn't post, even though I had the urge several times. I was finally back late Friday, and I was able to post the note about John Spencer.
I didn't want to post anything else for some time after that, because I wanted Spencer to have the top of the blog for awhile. It may seem like a weird way to show respect, but it was what I did. I'm still feeling the loss. I had lunch with my older son on Saturday, and one of the things we talked about was Spencer, because my son's a big ''West Wing'' fan, too, and especially liked Spencer's work.
But I do have some other things I've been meaning to talk about, like the fine holiday episodes of ''Everybody Hates Chris'' and ''Grey's Anatomy,'' and why ''Joey'' keeps falling just short of being really good, and maybe some more about Christmas songs, since I have been getting e-mails from a lot of places where that story ended up running. I'll try to add a few things later today. And the supporting actor story has run and you can find it here. The bold type in it is messed up for some reason, but you should be able to follow the text.
