                            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”?
