Neighbors to my South: My most SINCERE and HEARTFELT CONGRATURLATIONS!!!At 1121EST, the associated press called the 2020 US Presidential Race for Joseph Robinette Biden Jr.
[ That's 'news'. We should probably avoid comments. ]
Yes, ControlBooth is MY COMMUNITY, and it has always been unapologetically Pro-Science, Pro-Arts, Pro-Net Neutrality, and Pro-Equality. If you don't agree with this, that's fine, but understand that is in-step with the VAST majority of the Live Entertainment Community. I'm sorry you feel it's wrong that CB has a liberal bias, but the truth is, it does. The liberal political parties around the world tend to be better supporters of the arts, of science, of civil rights, and equality, all things that are hallmarks of what our industry holds dear. Unfortunately, our industry hasn't always modeled these things, but we are a work in progress and we will hold each other to higher standards. It is part of our culture on ControlBooth, to hold each other to a higher standard of accuracy, of safety, of empathy, and professionalism.
And so liberally too.I've always found it faintly amusing that people use the epithet "liberal" as an insult.
The whole world is celebrating along with the US.Australia is celebrating along with the USA. I thought both Biden‘s and Harris‘ speeches on Saturday night were excellent - and I’m willing to bet that Dr. Fauci breathed a huge sigh of relief. There’s been a fair amount of speculation here today that our government, who have been very, very weak on climate change, will be pushed for greater action by the Biden administration and I look forward to that. Also, I had expected a temper tantrum from the outgoing President but he’s surpassed my expectations and I suspect he’s only getting started.
The previous time there was a completely crazy person in the news every few days it was Charlie Sheen.I for one am thrilled to finally have an adult in charge. Mostly looking forward to not having to give a damn whenever I hear that crazy cheese puff on the news. My cats will tell you I've mumbled "God help us" around the house too much in the last four years. I'm relieved to change that to "whatever biotch..."
As for Joe, someone pleeeeaaaase tell him to not run onstage. No running ever! I support Joe -- that's why I'm sending their production manager a case of glow tape and a microphone without any buttons.

In a hastily convened press conference in Philadelphia, Trump's legal team featuring Rudy Giuliani, Corey Lewandowski, and others was supposed to announce their lawsuits against the state of Pennsylvania for their objections to the way the votes were tallied. Trump announces Saturday morning via Presidential Tweet that the press conference will be held at the Four Seasons, which everybody understood to be the Four Seasons Hotel in Philadelphia.
