While it seems every MSM outlet on the planet was pontificating on the adventures of Carrie and her girlfriends from “Sex and The City” in stories about the movie about the television series, real news was happening around the globe. But the space was there for the girls from New York.
OK, I went to the opening night showing of the ultimate smart woman who likes fashion flick, but I acknowledge that it wasn’t real news. Even if the television crews were waiting outside the theater when four of us friends dressed as Carrie and Charlotte and ourselves emerged from the 7 p.m. show.
The night before the opening I had a book disscussion and signing at the River Forest Public Library, where about 20 people interested in where the news had gone in the newspaper wanted to air their views. Some were young journalists wondering what the future holds, some were older readers wondering what the future holds and some were older journalists who wanted to talk about the past. Two were my sons who wanted to help sell books.
There was a bigger crowd at the Lake Theater in Oak Park the following night. With better shoes.
