And $100,000 later...

Wow. I'm sorry I didn't blog yesterday after the Michael Jackson tribute benefit and all its ancillary activities, but I've had my mom and two of my sisters here and yesterday we all had a celebratory lunch with Erich's family. But we did it! We raised $100,000+ for music education programs and put on a dazzling show.

I'll write more later, but at the moment Miles forgot his phone and I have to take it to him at work, then take my mom and sister to the airport. Also, I have to write my column about the event. So the fun hasn't stopped. But I leave you with this:My very first Flickr photo album.

And here's my favorite shot:

'Nuff said. Well, not really. But for now.

Given the direction of the Journalism industry(and previous posts on that point), may I not so subtlety suggest that you think about a career shift? It would be a loss for journalism in general and Vegas journalism specifically, but that looked like a whole lot of fun to do.......don't forget, Gary Marshall was a medill grad.

That'd be my favourite shot too if it was me.

Awesome job, glad it was a success for you.

Congratulations! Heff might feel a tinge of jealousy at that picture.
