I saw a bit on Entertainment

I saw a bit on Entertainment Tonight about Ted Williams and was really struck by their exploitation of him. There's no doubt about this being an amazing opportunity for the man, but ET seemed hell bent on exposing everything about the man. It was grotesque.

I befriended a homeless guy

I befriended a homeless guy that hangs outside a strip mall where I regularly go to pick up my lunch. I sometimes buy him a coffee, sometimes give him a few coins, but he never, ever asks me. He just seems happy to talk and not be sneered at or given the cold shoulder. He's a good guy, just really down on his luck. Having once been briefly homeless, and dirt poor and not sure where my next meal was coming from, I can really empathize with folks who just haven't had much of a leg up in life. Everyone should try being poor for a week. Just to see what it's like to have nothing.

ADVICE FOR THE LIT-LORN

My friend tore a strip off me for "hogging" the agent, even though everyone in the room was encouraged to talk to others and all of us were busy every minute. I apologized all over the place but it wasn't enough. What are the procotols?
