Jack Renaud, the producer for the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, called me this afternoon to let me know that the piece he put together on Guerilla Drive-Ins was probably going to air tonight. That was really nice of him; I didn’t know that Big Powerful TV News Producers did that. I suspect they usually don’t, and that Jack is just particularly friendly. Anyhow, thanks to him, I was able to get the word out, and TiVo the story! Here it is:
Hurrah, we’re all rich and famous now!

So cool John!
Did you notice, John:
– The online CBSNews story, where you responded to the “controversy”, says you show the movies in NY, not PA? Glad you corrected them in your post.
– You are one of the lead links on http://www.dailykos.com as of 4pm saturday? kinda cool.
Reminds me (as I was reminded at your wedding – NO offense) of The Jerk:
Navin R. Johnson: The new phone book’s here! The new phone book’s here!
Harry Hartounian: Boy, I wish I could get that excited about nothing.
Navin R. Johnson: Nothing? Are you kidding? Page 73 – Johnson, Navin R.! I’m somebody now! Millions of people look at this book (ED: website) everyday! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity – your name in print – that makes people. I’m in print! Things are going to start happening to me now.
[the Sniper points to Navin’s name in the phone book]
Sniper: Johnson, Navin R… sounds like a typical bastard.
I still think Gung Ho (the Ron Howard movie) at an old abandoned auto plant would make a good one. In case you run out of ideas, which I can’t imagine ever happening.
