Welcome to all the newcomers to this weekly events list! I added a bunch of folks that have been to recent nextNY events.
So… I’ll admit to not knowing enough about the healthcare bill to have a real opinion on it — I just try and eat right, exercise, and avoid the healthcare system entirely by not getting sick.
There is one thing I *love* about the plan, though… The free ice cream! It certainly can’t be just a coincidence that only two days after we pass healthcare reform, we have Free Cone Day. Apparently, additional coverage means more sprinkles! Woo! I can’t wait for the sundaes that are sure to come when we tackle immigration. My change tastes like pistachio.

6:30PM TV Publicity: Think Outside The Tube
Instead of in front of the box, we are more likely catch favourite shows on cell phones, iPods, and all manner of hand-held devices, making the competition for eyeballs all the more intense. How do publicists grab the attention of today’s focus-challenged viewers? And how can you get into the game?
