George Clooney

So I’m walking in my neighborhood when this ambulance, sirens blaring, comes barreling down the street. At that moment, out pops this dog from a yard, (not to bark at me, which the dogs in my neighborhood tend to do, neither to bite me, the nerve of some of them) 😆 To tell the truth, they do that to almost everyone. Yeah, the dog, it begins to wail. I’ve seen this happen before. They’re like banshees.

Look who has walk in.

George Clooney. So let’s begin. 🙂

1) Do you think that desperation of some aspiring actors/actresses can lead them into taking roles that they wouldn’t dream of taking? Do you think they have to compromise in order to get their feet in the front door?

2) Do you think that countries have too much to worry about to concern themselves with external issues not directly affecting them, not a direct threat, to do anything of substance in solving issues many miles away from them?

3) You said that you fail on Darfu; that after so many years things are still the same. Why should Omar-al-Bashir stop doing what he’ s doing when he’s not being punish? Or has he and the punishment is lax?

4) Any plans to do a Spencer Tracy remake?

5) If the world had a soundtrack, what would be some of its songs?

Thank you.

    One way that you can “put pressure” on our leaders is to add your name to Sudan Action Now’s open letter to President Obama. His administration has referred to Sudan as a “ticking time bomb,” and with less than 90 days left before the referendum in Southern Sudan the time for our voices to be heard has never been a more urgent.

    Thank you for stopping by and commenting. 🙂

    How many open or close letters will it have to take to world leaders for something substantial to be done? I’m not talking about going to war or anything like that, but something that would finally have Mr. Bashir saying to himself, “Maybe these people that have been agitating have a point.”

    I don’t know what the answer is. Sanctions? Tying them in a room and letting them duke it out. Nice sounding speeches. Carrot and stick. African leaders finally standing up, I mean really standing and doing something. More pressure, and more pressure.

    I appreciate the small accomplishments, hopefully and maybe they’ll grow into something bigger.

    I can refer to a problem all I want, still doesn’t make it go away. Not cynical, just being honest. Not giving up, just being honest.
