I don't, basically, as the whole TNT situation makes fairly evident. I'm
simply not a political creature. My life would be eminently simpler and less
stressful if I *were*, but I ain't. I go for the philosophy of "Be sand, not
oil, in the machinery of the world."
The peculiar thing about it is...by all rights I should be hard-core
unemployable. But any time I become available, the phone rings...people who
work with me invariably come back to work with me again,fully knowing that I'm
a major-league pain in the ass. I think the reason they do so is because they
know that I'm *not* political, that whatever some might say the truth is that
when I show up at the office in the morning, I check my ego at the door and
everything I do, I do if I sincerely believe it's the best thing for the show,
and the story.
Somehow, it works. Damned if I understand it.
