Okay, so I'm just figuring out this is kinda like a facebook page. So, I just read your message. Good to hear from you Phyllis! I just moved back to Mass after 20 years in Seattle. Now, I am trying to get to know the Boston scene. It has been easy, especially with the fact that there really aren't any agents (which is weird). But, I am very happen to be home. I hope to see you, and maybe we will work together some day!
Thanks so much for the feedback Phyllis, really looking forward to memorializing Bobby. I can't stand when actors mimic the "Kennedy speak". I sent an MP3 off to Mike, presenting the RFK speech in Indianapolis, informing a campaign rally of MLK's assassination. I'll send it off to you. Paul
