In fact, here is what was written about yours truly in washington woman:
She writes two PR blogs that instruct clients. She uses two cell phones but draws the line at a BlackBerry. “If I had one, I’d never stop. Finally, I have it right—it’s important to have daily family time and ‘Abbe time.’ I had a bad case of burnout—I was such a perfectionist that I ended up redoing things. You want to be available and accessible, [but] 24/7 is impossible.”
Here's the story - and it is a doozie!
Technology Can Be 'Berry, 'Berry Addictive':
Scott Rapoport Reporting /
A new study reveals BlackBerry's are becoming -- among other things -- the 800-pound gorilla in the bedroom.
'Berry, 'Berry, addictive?
"I live with it. I can't live without it," one New York City resident told CBS 2 HD.
Yeah ... there's a reason some call 'em ... CrackBerrys.
But are you having a love affair with yours?
"I am on my BlackBerry more than I see my boyfriend," one woman said.
The study of 6,500 traveling executives says 35 percent of them would choose their PDA over their spouse.
"That's a tough call," one said.
"Oh you don't want to go there," another added.
And apparently that attitude is being seen in the sack. Of those polled, 87 percent said they bring their devices into the bedroom.
Another 84 percent check their e-mails just before they go to sleep. Another 80 percent check them in the morning as soon as they get up.
"It can actually ruin relationships," said Dr. Susan Bartell, a psychologist and relationship expert. Bartell said couples should be interfacing more, but with each other.
"People are so focused on their PDAs, they're not focusing on what might be going wrong in their relationships," Bartell said.
Of those polled, 62 percent said they love their blackberry or PDA, and most of them said it makes their life more productive. However, experts suggest, for the sake of your relationship, you might occasionally …
"Turn it off, spend some time with your partner. Have a real relationship with a living human being," Bartell said.
The study was done by Sheraton hotels. Among its other findings: More than three quarters of those polled say their gadgets give them more quality time with friends and family... and help them enjoy life more.

The rest of the show had the usual Madonna fixtures: sequins, fishnets, and bondage-style outfits drawn from the 3,500 items of clothing reportedly whipped together by 36 designers specifically for the tour. Dancers sauntered across stage in top hats and tail coats, and Madonna tried her hand at break-dancing and pole-dancing.
Some 40,000 fans - many in pink cowboy hats and boas - were treated to a...

I thought about Susan Stockard Channing today. She played "an Abby" (The First Lady) on the West Wing. She and I have never met. We are nothing alike except we have had serial marriages, and have settled in long-term relationships (but I married mine) She kept the name "Channing" as I kept the name "Buck" from my first marriage.
Stockard Channing is now 64 years old. Amazing. Here she is at my age, in 1996:
and on various Talk Shows:
Six Degrees of Separation -- you betcha!

and the word of the day is "chutzpah". Lee Israel has it in spades - and will be making more money from it!
and she wrote my favorite two childhood bios: "miss tallulah bankhead' and "kilgallen" and EXPOSED the kilgallen = kennedy assassination! Lee Israel was the biographer's biographer.
But why, what led her to, and meticulously "how" she did the forgeries is a wild thing--why, with my old remington #7 i could do that to, methinks!
but i blog, which is what i yam. (LOL)
the book is called "Can you ever forgive me?" and the title is taken right out of Dorothy Parker! --or Lee Israel writing in Dottie's voice? (see letter above) -- WHAT- EVER!
but the NY Times book review says "Now, all these years later, she’s written a slender, sordid and pretty damned fabulous book about her misadventures." So I must go to Border's with my discount coupon and buy it to-day!
About the book:
Description: An audacious memoir by a down-on-her-luck writer, "Can You Ever Forgive Me?" is Israel's story of the astonishing literary forgeries she conceived and successfully executed for almost two years.
now, THINK ABOUT THIS: nobody made that movie that has been in my mind's eye for 20 years of mary steenbergen playing miss dorothy kilgallen (now she is too durn old!) but a movie can be made of miss israel's book as a FRAUD! doncha just love it!oh, oh, yes, let's do that! let's! xxx's!

HighViz Consulting introduces 24/7 PR - PROMO Challenge (SM) - boutique firm challenges new clients offer of new promo concept within one business day
HighViz establishes “PR On-Demand” Program - Boutique firm challenges new clients to allow HighVizPR team work on innovative concepts within 24 hour period
Haymarket, VA, May 7, 2008. HighViz Consulting Group, (HighViz), www.highviz.net , a project company serving Information Technology, legal, non-profit and associations and organizations working within federal agencies, is announcing its “PR PROMO CHALLENGE”. This unique offer provides the opportunity for promising on-demand companies and organizations to kick off a value-based trial PR campaign with a senior-level Public Relations Practitioner. This includes working out the beginning concept phase to a starting campaign for each potential client.
In addition, HighViz is offering to consult with those who are interested in taking the “Challenge”, taking the customer step by step through case studies of public relations concepts. “This is how to put high visibility to a business entity’s greatest advantage” Abbe Buck, HighViz’s Principal Consultant and Lead Publicist explains, “By learning what has worked for others who have successfully used public relations promotion techniques, the business who must promote to grow will have a running start in future, innivative, viral PR planning.”
HOW THE 24/7 PR-PROMO CHALLENGE WORKS
What is the HighViz PR Promo Challenge?
HighViz asks to have those who would like to consider hiring us to put them to the test by asking the team to come up with ideas for their businesses within a business day's time. Abbe Buck also notes, "If HighViz can come up with a starter road map toward a promotional campaign and a strategy for marketing traction, we will do all that we can to earn [our] customer's business. As WWII and adopted HVPR mascot Rosie the Riveter says "WE CAN DO IT!" --and we already have."
Past Performance: Buck cites work that has been done for clients in this fashion for the ASSYST, USO of Metropolitian Washington, Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians, Information Experts, Molen Enterprises IT, Lani Silver, (author), David Aaker Motivational Speaker, BoardBoost, Sarbanes Oxley Seminars, and more.
HighVizPR’s 24/7 PR – PROMO Challenge works with an on-demand concept used within Fortune 500 companies such as IBM. HVPR asks that a form is completed on their website. Once the form is completed, HighViz will contact the marketing management who made the PR Challenge request. At this point, HighViz will do an assessment of the PR campaign needs of the organization, (normally a $1500 value). After the evaluation is completed, it will be presented to the organization, with suggestions, and a suggested “BRAND” or “CONCEPT” to put to use WITHIN ONE BUSINESS DAY (24 HOURS)
“In starting out with our current clients, the 24/7 "PR PROMO CHALLENGE” has worked well because as we thrive on deadlines, we can also share in the customer’s sense of urgency to bring their ideas to fruition and their services “to market” , HighViz's Buck says. "We want to be ‘challenged’ by our customers to go the extra mile. We need these challenges! In an information-packed society, every business, from a 'mom and pop' to a major corporation, must have the opportunity to show who they are, what they provide, why they are in business. It is our job to help them showcase their best attributes.”
To take the 24/7 PR PROMO CHALLENGE, fill out the entry form at the HighViz site:
