After reading the replies to my comment above I decided to leave you this story for you to apply it however you see fit. While a poor woman stood in the marketplace selling cheese, a cat came along and carried off a cheese. A dog saw the pilferer and tried to take the cheese away. The cat stood up to the dog so they pitched each into each other. The dog barked and snapped; the cat spat and scratched, but they could bring the battle to a decision. "lets go to the fox and have him referee the matter" the cat finally suggested. Agreed said the dog and off they went to the fox. The fox listened to their to their arguments with a judicious air. Foolish animals he chided them. Why carry on like that? If both you're willing to divide the cheese, you'll both be satisfied. Agreed said the cat and the dog so the fox took out his knife and cut the cheese in two. But instead of cutting it lengthwise he cut it in the width. "my half is smaller!" Protested the dog the fox looked through his spectacles at the dog share. 'you're right quite right!' The fox decided so he went and bit off a piece of the cats share. 'that will make it even!' The fox said. When the cat saw what the fox did she began to yell 'Just look my part is smaller now!

The fox again put on his spectacles and looked judiciously at the cat's share. "Right you are! said the fox. 'Just a moment and I'll make it right.' And he went and bit off a piece from the dog's cheese. This went on for so long that the fox finally ate up the whole cheese before their eyes.

I THINK that I get it. Was the fox named Lloyd Blankfein?

Funny; I thought all this time it was President Obama who had a latch on all the fundraising and influence from Hollywood. BTW: Since when have you found the traffic in East Hampton terrific in the middle of the summer, with or without the presence of a presidential candidate or incumbent?? Not a very classy commment!
