I think there would be something in hanging out with John Ford for a month and writing a book or making a documentary about it. It could be like I'm with Busey.

And thanks a lot for telling me about Leo's passing- put a damper on my day, Linners!

Brandon, it was a coincidence, I swear! And I didn't even know it was him 'til I was looking at the same frosted cookies, right beside him, and he shook some constituent's hand. Then I ran away.

J.R., Sorry! I tend to get excited when news comes across the wire that people I know will care about, even if it's bad news. I called Cox and Kristin late at night when I saw that Hunter S. Thompson had blown his brains out.

And your show idea is actually a really good one. When Ford is bankrupt, he's going to need to sell his only asset — his name — to stay above water. We all know what kind of crazy shit he says when he doesn't know he's being filmed. Think of the shit he'll say when he's hamming it up for the camera.
