Thank God for NormaDesmond is all I can say. Far from ever wearing a ferbisseneh punim, his insights are keen and his sense of what right is right on. Plus he's a lovely man. His blog, Mitten Drinnen, is a welcome break during my day. Anyway, he has been one of the "inner circle" and he's one of the people that I rely upon to make me smile and keep me in line.
