It's been quite a while since I last posted anything (appears to have been August 12th) to this journal. Though, it's not because I haven't thought of things to post. I jot down notes of ideas nearly everyday - however they're not very organized - often just a couple of words or a website. Posting the notes might be fine for a journal that only I would read, but since others may read it, I prefer it to be more organized. If nothing else, as is, no one but me could make heads or tails of them.
Rather than attempt to make one huge post, I'm going to try to organize a few of these past notes enough to post one every few days. So first up is what will hopefully be the first in a series of random notes/thoughts...
Rubin's Random Thought of the Day:
Why is it that left-wingers have multiple places to go (Canada, Cuba, and China - just to name a few 'C's) to if conservatives take over, yet there is no country in the world more free for conservatives to go to if the left takes over?

Doctor Who in the US news (from Outpost Gallifrey)
TBI Buyers' Briefing, a weekly information service sent to over 6,000 worldwide TV executives, this morning features a news item: "BBC scout gets feet under US table: Dr Who US sale being finalised". Among the various items mentioned in the report, which is mostly about the move of BBC Worldwide executive Paul Telegdy from London to the US, is an impending sale of the new series to this, the largest television market for the new show. "One really exciting franchise on both sides of the Atlantic that audiences know and love is Dr Who," Telegdy is quoted as saying in the report. It mentions that he is talking to an "interested party" and is confident it will be sold to a US network in the near future. "We're discussing the ratings potential of the show," he explains. He is likely referring to a cable network, not to one of the over-air broadcast networks.
