RIP James Gandolfini
A brief aside from politics. I am in LA this week getting ready to vote on the upcoming Emmy’s amongst other things. Today’s death of James Gandolfini hit hard in the entertainment community. I think this is in large part because of two aspects of James. On a personal level he was warm and funny and one of the few people I felt was down to earth enough in my business that I could get along with. On a professional level he was a very hard working genius. Few actors in history could play the flawed anti-hero like James. He was always focused, polite, and we will all miss him. We lost a great actor today way too young. It should remind us all how important it is to do what we can in this life because it is always too short.
