Kind of like the corporate CEO's going to congress asking for a handout and arriving in D.C. in their corporate jets.
Edward and Terry: Enough is enough with your derogatory, knowitall posts.
I'm not sure you read the same article the rest of us did.
I have yet to see where David made any "asking for a handout" comments. He only stated the facts. The point of the article isn't about soliciting welfare for David's family but rather, it's about the fact that the poor economy is affecting even those in the entertainment business.
The couple had invested a good bit in their retail business and they lost that apparently. And David's show income is also down. So he's taking care of their daughter and the wife is working for a caterer.
How did they respond?
"They cancelled their home phone service, pool service, and a monthly pest control service that kept a scorpion problem in check. Restaurants are out along with the tanning spa for Janelle. When their large-screen TV died recently, there was no money to replace it, said the Shimshis."
I didn't catch the part where either of them asked you guys to send them some money for a new TV.
So, where is the part about the hand out for the bailout? Where did David state that he and his wife weren't now cleaning the pool themselves? Where did they say they weren't reading books, Terry? Sheesh. Were you having a bad day February 12th?
David stated he's working on a business plan to pursue branching out into trade show work. Do you two disapprove of that?
I'm not the only one who found your posts unnecessarily and offensively aggressive.
Give the guy a frickin' break!
