    Hope you're feeling better. I look forward to hearing your take on the return of Milestone to DC.

    • Michael Davis says:

      Yeah-I guess one day I will have to chime in on The DC Milestone deal. One day…

    Michael – it was fun seeing you at SDCC. Also – I was very impressed that on Saturday you still had enough of a voice to shout and be heard across several booths and aisles. I'm lucky to be able to talk at all by Saturday. And even at my best I can't get my voice to carry like that.Now – Baltimore has some bad areas. I avoid them. I know that LA has some bad areas. Hopefully you avoid them. For over 25 years INSIGHT STUDIOS was located just on the edge of Baltimore. But these days I live the life of luxury in "horse country" near Baltimore. When you are in the area we would love to have you visit. You'll like it.And I hope today is a far better day for you!

      Baltimore and L.A. were both immortalized in Randy Newman songs.

    • Michael Davis says:

      I lost my voice Sunday morning. Sunday afternoon I was hit with a event that made me speechless anyway so it all worked out I guess. I'm sure there are some very nice places in Baltimore and the next time I am there (which is fairly often) I will take you up on your kind offer to visit. However, I will be strapped…

    What do you do? is a fair question. How much do you make? is NOYB.What does Alan Coil do? Nothing. He is a deadbeat.

    • Mike Gold says:

      Is that a union gig?

      • Alan Kistler says:

        As a Union Rep, I can confirm that the answer to that is "YES."But does being a deadbeat pay like it used to? Man, don't even get me STARTED …

      • Alan Coil says:

        I used to have a Union gig, but the Republicans took over. Now, the car companies are failing even as Big Oil is making record profits. Exxon made $90,000 profit every minute in the second quarter.

    Los Angeles can be fun, for a few days, if you think of it like theme park. However, if I lived there, it would eat me alive, because it feels like high school and I'm not one of the cool kids.New York, on the other hand, is full of people who were never, ever cool and moved here to fool themselves.

  5. Alan Kistler says:

    "I don’t need a damn gym. If I want exercise I can simply do what any black man does in Los Angeles… run from the police."This instantly became my away message today. And it reminded me of the days when I was growing up around D.C. and anytime a cop siren went off nearby, everyone looked at me (granted they had reasons to, but that's not the point!).It's hard being an Irish-Latino who looks semi-Asian. So many stereotypes to choose from. :-)

    I always enjoy reading your column when you throw in a little day-in-the-life action, Michael. From reading this one today, as with your trip to the spa, I take it that you enjoy these awkward interactions with theatre managers, spa owners, etc. I LIVE for those moments!

    • Michael Davis says:

      Thanks Mark, I just really hate people who think they have a sense of entitlement.

      • Mark Behar says:

        You're welcome, Michael. I, on the other hand, enjoy putting people in their places. E.g. I get an adrenaline rush when I find an error on my cell phone bill, because I know that I will call in and get an apology (even if I have to brow-beat someone into it), a bill credit, and the warm-and-fuzzy feeling that accompanies TRULY exercising one's rights as a consumer. If the first receptionist who gets me on the phone give me attitude, you'd better believe I'm gonna demand to speak to her manager. Bring it, I say! Bring it!

    "Thanks Mark, I just really hate people who think they have a sense of entitlement."Errm, uhhh…Who? Me?? What'd I do except ask for a way to contact you? I asked nicely and all, didn't I?? ;-/ Seriously tho…Sorry for the 'event', and props for exercising restraint. I'm sure that with the implied magnitude, that act of discipline twern't easy. However, I highly recommend going to the gym to burn off the anger. :-))And oh yeah….Loooove your response to the theatre manager. You punked him! Elegantly. :-)

    • Michael Davis says:

      Sorry Reg,I had a new email account set up but have had no time to activate it. I would simply give you one of the the ones I have now but then all those boyfriends who have been looking to talk to me about their girlfriends would have access. I can't have that.Hehehehehehee…hee…evil laugh.I will contact my web person and get back to you soon.

    • Michael Davis says:

      Here you go Reg: It may take a sec to get back to you because I just set this up with my management company and I'm sure I will be swamped with people sending me naked photos…I mean people interested in what I'm doing.

  8. Reg Gabriel says:

    Many, many thanks to you Michael!! You sir, are a man of integrity and grace. I greatly appreciate the trust and confidence. It will not be misused. Trust.Blessings and peace.
