You want to know about "real work": Ask Denny Haney about Del Ray ending the close-up act at corporate shows by beating the best Rummy player in the company. He was legitimately cheating (how's that for an oxymoron), and Denny's story of the time Del was almost beaten is a great example of...

Re: New TSA Security Procedures

No idea if this is mentioned above, but the insane thing is subjecting pilots to these searches. If a pilot wants to bring down the plane he is flying, feeling him up isn't going to stop him. As it stands, pilots go through security screening 200-400 times a year. And that raises questions about the...

A performer's act is his/her most valuable asset.
