Jan 4th 2011 12:18AM I think it was George Lucas who once gave a speech to theater owners. He told them that popcorn would make them money, not necessarily the movie. It's the same way with cruise lines (I work for a major line and this is a FACT). The line, at least my employer, is not out to rip anyone off. The bar prices are much more reasonable than any major city's saloon. The spa prices are similar to your local day spas (with great discounts on port days) and the boutiques are duty-free. The thing is, once they have you onboard, being a cashless society it's so easy for people to just hand over their key cards and "charge" whatever they like. IMO, it's always wise to keep an eye on your spending, but most people on vacation are a little more self-indulgent than they are at home; that's what the line is counting on. We'll sell you a 7-night, all meals, onboard entertainment and destination transport for only $399/pp but each person is probably going to spend closer to $1,000 on the rest of their cruise vacation. Bon Voyage!
Oct 2nd 2010 1:56AM I worked for Mr. Cannell as a Jr. Publicist from '87 - '89. He was a great man who wanted to be known, always, as a writer (the reason for his signature at the end of each show.) His door was always open and as successful and famous as he was, he was truly "everyman". I am so very sad and I truly hope that his trusty IBM Selectric is right by his side. R.I.P. Mr. Cannell.

Feb 25th 2007 7:39PM Even with evidence, there are still ignorant people out there who need to believe that New Yorkers are rude. I notice that those e-mails were mainly from dumb southern crackers who still believe that the Holocaust never happened and that the south shall rise again. Too bad Katrina didn't wipe
y'all out! the fact is, New Yorkers are not rude, they are smart, friendly, neighborly and really don't give a damn what anyone (especially stupid, backwards racists southerners) think.
