    And by and large, people don’t give a damn. Internet forums with topics on “X did a good job!” peter out after a few posts and a few dozen page views. Topics on “X is the worst thing ever and should be mutilated!” draw dozens of posts and thousands of views. News broadcasts that lead with the good works the local Scout troop did have people wandering into the kitchen to get a beer and check on dinner. Broadcasts that promise to bring you footage of the latest apocalyptic fire have people staring at the screen. No one would watch an E! special about celebrities volunteering in soup kitchens. The specials about celebrities in sex scandals get boffo ratings.

    No kidding. There is no way, NONE where we library trustees would EVER vote in an interim member whose avowed purpose was to dismantle programs and spending. None. (Not, by the bye, that it was ever UP to us. It was up to the selectmen.)

    P3 makes my head hurt. Look at the position of his arms and hands. Is his middle name Gumby or something?

    So you’ve never seen her call you on your bluff before, eh, Mrs. K? Yeah, as I said yesterday, good luck on ever meeting your grandchildren.

    My wife and I, at various points in our lives, received similar ultimatums from our respective families: do this our way or out you go. We both chose to take off within days, for good. Neither of us are on speaking terms with our families, much to their respective dismay, and neither of us were half as hotheaded and outspoken as CK. So you go, Mrs. Karenna, show everyone how it’s done. Just don’t go whining a decade from now how you’ve never met your grandchildren.

    Although Rubin occasionally throws in the unexpected plot swerve … wouldn’t it be spiffy if CK really did stick to her guns?

    She gave it to Pedro the cabana boy for “services rendered.”
