Your namesake is at it again, this time spreading warmed-over lies about climate change for the Heartland Institute:

We just watched “8” — really amazing. We saw Standing on Ceremony in person and this was incredible as it was in the actual words from court.

It was really good and very cool to see pros reading from the script cold-reading style. That is a first as was this type of live real life play about current time issues streamed live to spearhead a cover-up. What’s that movie where everyone opens their windows in the middle of the night and screams “I’m not gonna take it anymore!”

It’s a brave new world com’in on.

The movie you’re thinking of is “Network.”

It was a great show with teriffic performances by John C. Reilley, Martin Sheen (whose climactic speech brought down the house), Chris Colfer, Jane Lynch, and George & Brad.
