Dreams do not come true just because you dream them.  It’s hard work that makes things happen.”   —   Shonda Rimes (Sic)

(As a lazy ass dreamer, I cannot disagree!  It’s not that I haven’t worked hard in my life . . . because I have.  It’s just that I never worked hard towards achieving a dream.  I’m a settler, I guess.

If your newspaper is like mine, they left the H out of Shonda Rhimes last name.  Kind of strange, as well known as she is.  She seems to rule ABC.  Remarkably – maybe – I’m not a fan.  I haven’t seen all of her shows, but the ones I have watched always seem to lean to the tawdry side of things.  God knows I’m no prude.  Far from it.  I like a little raunch as much as the next guy.  Maybe even more so.  But, I like it in its place.  I remember when “Grey’s Anatomy” first came on, I was all excited.  I had kind of been jonesing for a good medical drama ever since “ER” went off the air.  I like hospital shows with a little soap opera thrown in, but “Grey’s Anatomy” is just a soap opera . . . with a little hospital thrown in.  “Private Practice” was just a spin-off, so I couldn’t be bothered with it.  That actress never did anything for me too.  But, I was also excited about “How to Get Away with Murder”, because I like legal dramas . . . and Viola Davis.  But, in the very first episode they showed this gay love scene, that I thought was completely superfluous.  And, I’m someone who has always been a proponent of Gay rights!  “Scandal” never appealed to me.  Hey, the name says it all!  I watched the first episode of “For The People”, but it came off as kind of light weight.  Just a lot of extremely young, and pretty lawyers, mostly sleeping with each other.  I haven’t given “Station 19” a shot yet.  Maybe, I will.  But, I’m not going to get my hopes up.  I completely understand that there is an audience – Gen Xers, I suppose – for her kind of shows, but so far they have not been for me.  Maybe, I’m just getting old.  If so, so be it.  The networks never really cared for my – current – demographic in the first place.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Yes, the print edition omitted the H from the author’s name … and it struck me, too, as unusual. Maybe it’s a LUSTRAL, or LUSTROUS, moment for the Cryp, something that happens only once every five years?

    LOL, Roy! Yeah. When I looked up lustral I saw the five year thing, too. Kind of strange that it veers from the meaning of luster, huh? — YUR
