Reader Fa'ul bin Qatiq, a.k.a. Paul Kotik, writes that our TV coverage is a little thin:
After all that chatter about the President living in a bubble, I'm surprised TAS is missing the opportunity to, uh, comment upon an actual man living in a bubble. He's been in a transparent bubble filled with water for the last week, on the public plaza at
Lincoln Center, NYC. The lunatic magician David Blaine. UBL's sister and numerous A-List Hollywood celebs have come to worship. Seems the Left admires some people who live in bubbles. It's a huge media event — buzz is it killed Tom Cruise's opening of MI III here in Manhattan.
I'm there — my diving colleagues trained this kid in breath -hold and are supervising the stunt. Live tonight on an ABC special, 8-10 PM. My notes and pics at www.deeperblue.net.
I know there's some kind of Deep Meaning in this, but haven't the time right now to dope it out.
So when David Blaine doesn't drown tonight, thank a TAS reader.
