Well, they're not all gems and this would be one of those, but while I write a lot of crap I never write bullshit.

I could tell you that Jason Bateman and Silver Spoons or Arrested Development were seminal TV moments for me, but the truth is I never watched a single episode I recall and I could barely pick him out of a line-up.  His sister Justine is much more familiar because I did occasionally catch Family Ties.

Anyway he's not on to talk about that or his misspent young adulthood, but instead to promote either Bad Words (which he also directed) or Growing Up Fisher that he narrates.

Maria Shriver is the Quisling Kennedy who pasted a veneer of respectability on the Steroid Stupid Aahnold's disastrous tenure as Governator of Cauleefornia.

She's no longer with him because of his repeated infidelities (who'd a thunk?) and she and Stephen will probably talk about her charitable work for people with 'intellectual disabilities' and Alzheimer's sufferers.  Or perhaps her HBO project The Shriver Report.

Tomorrow we have Anita Hill and Simon Schama and then...

Well it's really up to you, isn't it?

As I've said I'll try to keep the plates spinning, but I know my ability to do that will be limited by my other goals.

Think about it and get back to me.  I will crank until I can crank no more.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
