Did you see that a new book "Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: A Memoir of Our Tumultuous Years" by former Palin insider Frank Bailey is about to be released? They call it a scathing tell-all. It is apparently based on emails that Palin sent to Bailey over the years. My personal opinion of Sarah Palin: the only thing good to come from her fame was the incredible skits Saturday Night Live's Tina Fey did. But hey, that is just my opinion.
I'm really in a mood today, so when I read the AP story on this book, it just got me started, but the book is not really what I am on to. I've told my agents over and over again that emails are fine for general communication between them and their clients and other agents as well. But they are NOT to be depended on (because sometimes they don't go thru, and you don't know that). They are however a written record, and will likely live forever - somewhere. If any anger or disappointment or accusing etc. etc. etc. happens, it is best to make a telephone call. Or meet in person. It's too easy to let an email take on a life of its own. People talking with each other, that is how we negotiate and solve problems. Then an email to verify the record of what we talked about. I don't EVER want to see a story about Blind Allegiance to John M Scott. NEVER. And I ALWAYS protect My clients.
I'll be honest, what's really got me ticked off: my car was stolen last night. And I'm really not happy.(Understatement for the G-Rated). My partner was out and about in the car to the gym and other places. I was just walking home from the office when I found out. Did you know that if the person driving the car at the time is not the registered owner, they can't make a police report? Only the registered owner can do that, and in person. And the police didn't show up at my house until 4 hours later. 4 hours for that car to go where ever. I'm off subject now, but I had to RANT. Kind of like how Sarah Palin makes me feel. No offense Sarah.
