COLIN FIRTH GETS SAG'S BEST ACTOR AWARD FOR THE KING'S SPEECH
Link

As a SAG member I got a chuckle out of what Firth said when he won, and especially the part about flashing his SAG card to try to get female attention and entry into nightclubs.

Flashing my SAG card never worked for me either, Colin.

"Until today, I would say probably if ever I felt I had a trophy which told me that something's really happening for me, it was my SAG card, you know, to be a part of this extraordinary collective," said Firth, accepting his award.


"Growing up in England, it's not something you expect to see in your wallet, really," he said. "And so it has this glow, and I used to flash it around hoping it would get me female attention, entry into nightclubs ...

"And it didn't, not a bit. I'd like to thank, looking at whose here, I'd like to thank security for letting me into the building," he joked.

CITY COUNCIL MEETING TOMORROW, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2011
Link to agenda

If the CM PRESS attends, we may ask the Council for answers about the stinkeye investigation, about the Chief Shawkey matter, and why there seems to be so much secrecy involved with our municipal government.

We understand that some matters have to be kept under wraps, but the reality is that just about everything the City does can be kept secret  as personnel matters or attorney/client privilege or attorney work product, and there's a buzz in the community that these rights to keep some things secret are being abused.

CITY OFFICIAL IN VA. PUT ON PAID ADMINISTRATIVE LEAVE SAT AT HOME FOR 12 YEARS AND COLLECTED HER SALARY

Meanwhile, in Newport-Mesa we have Costa Mesa's police chief on paid administrative leave and we have the head of the NMUSD also on paid administrative leave.

Will we break Virginia's record because our so-called leaders are twiddling their thumbs?

  1. I see absolutely NO need for PUBLIC personnel matters to be private. Nor do I see any need for public employees to be given PAID leave (that sure wouldn't happen in the private sector).

    The taxpayers need transparency, as well as a conservator!
