This is my first weekend in a long time that I have nothing to do other than sit and read, write, do a crossword or two, and catch up on some long-delayed napping. So I’m going to enjoy it.
One thing I’m looking forward to is the second season of HBO’s The Newsroom on Sunday night. I’ve been a huge fan of Aaron Sorkin for as long as I’ve known of his work, which was long before The West Wing, and he’s a playwright — A Few Good Men was on the stage long before Jack Nicholson told Tom Cruise that he couldn’t handle the truth.
Based on previews, The Newsroom story arc for the season will be based on this clip, so it should be a good one.
