Welcome to CNH’s Water Cooler, where fellow Hubsters commiserate and comment on current events, or whatever you like, while our boys Jon and Stephen are away.
Hey all! Hope you are having a great week so far. Although the studios are dark on 54th Street in NYC, the news cycle keeps a churnin’, with the Puerto Rican primary on Sunday inching Mitt Romney that much closer to the nomination. The primary coverage also allowed us to check out a shirtless Rick Santorum, something we ladies have been dying to see. Tuesday is my home state of Illinois’ primary, which is being seen as the tipping point, make-or-break state…of the moment. Of course, the backdrop to the Republican’s continued march forward to the nomination is our President Obama, who is quietly ramping up his campaign mega-machine (as anyone on his email list can attest), and also, endearingly, enjoying Guinness with the Common People in our country’s capital on St Patty’s Day this past Saturday.
George Clooney was sexily arrested outside the Sudanese Embassy in D.C. on Friday, ostensibly protesting that government’s treatment of its southern region and the ongoing humanitarian crisis there. I give him props for using his celebrity to highlight a worthy cause that he is passionate about….there’s another guy I know who does that…hmm….I think he is staring at you at the top of this page.
The situation abroad is very dicey at the moment, with unrest and bloodshed in Afghanistan, Syria, and France dominating the headlines. Not to bring the mood of our friendly chat down too much, but I am sure these stories would be affecting the show’s relative perspectives this week.
What stories do you think Stephen and/or Jon would cover right now? Was there anything that happened this week which prompted you think, “Stephen would have totally talked about that”?
Feel free also just to chat around the CNH office’s Water Cooler. Fandom is also friend-dom.
