Yep, Lawrence O'Donnell is a thinking being. Nice!

Stand up? Nah. I really can't stand up in front of people-- hate that kind of attention-- which would be a total liability for that career path. But thank you for the vote of confidence! Very kind. It is especially welcome since I just got fired this week. ( Musie holds hands up: No chorus of "ahs" or "there. there honeys" requested or wanted. I needed to be fired. In design work, one gets meshed up into people's lives as part of the process of taking a home from thought to plan to building with finishes and furniture. It is a long and intimate process which typically --if one works very hard and is lucky--culminates in a happy client, but one who has gotten used to bathing in the loving attention of an on point design team and finds it hard to let go. There has to be a break up and all break ups are tough)

So, since my numbers didn't spin to the top at Omaze and I am not destined to pump Mr. Clooney for his dad's contact information and go on to save newspapers as we know them, I guess I'll be looking at other job opportunities!

LornaDoone may have it right and the winner won't be announced until the actual event-- probably better for someone who is unused to press attention to do it that way anyway (save someone from getting those "lottery winner" calls from relatives and friends they never knew they had who would want to be the lucky plus one!)

Sorry to hear of the job loss but I'll bet you'll be designing a new client's digs soon.

And yes, that was my thought exactly. Spare the person from media glare before there is someone there to buffer the onslaught of attention.

Well, go get your bucket 'o chicken WWHS, unless you live in Texas with your 9-year-old daughter.  Jean or Jane from Texas won and her +1 is her daughter.  George will love that!

And they raised over a million dollars!!!!!!!

And congratulations to all of us for raising 1.2 USD! We are awesome  flower 

I like the picture of Jean and Victoria, it seems it was delivered through Skype, because Omaze is in the little picture below. They recorded their conversation and made a photo. Victoria is adorable. Hope they'll have fun!

Why is that a problem? She is with her mother there. She might be a bit young to sit through it, I agree, but depending on what she knows about the subject already, and where her interest lies (some kids are keen on history) why not. I went to see the Warhorse and Life of Pi with my son, the former was PG -13 and latter PG. We left life of Pi in the middle, just not suitable for kids. Some of the children programs in the morning TV are exessively violent and surreal, very bad. You can´t even explain them.

Sometimes you can´t predict what will be too much. Here it was a visit to the planetarium to see a 3D show. Main message (it was visually incredible) was that the sun is going to die, eventually, and all the life on earth disappears. My son still comes back to the topic even when it has been years when he saw it. It was PG-4.

I was thinking of it as setting an example. I have no idea how graphic the film gets, but presumably they have given it that certificate for a reason...otherwise why bother? I appreciate that it is a guideline, but I noticed that some have said they won't donate again.

Of course, it's entirely possible that none of them will go into the screening anyway, and just go to the afterparty. It happens a lot

Wait, some people have indicated that because the woman who won wants to bring her daughter, that they won't donate to a good cause again? Seriously?

It's not like the contest organization can tell the woman in question NOT to bring her own daughter. Not to mention that this film could be viewed as "educational" in some respects, as it's a film about our history and the term PG means "parental guidance" and if her mother isn't guiding her away from this film, whose business is that but her own? There isn't any nudity or scenes with limbs severed from bodies or anything like that, I'm sure, so what's the problem?

Seems more like some people just like to find something to whine about to me! JMO of course!

Totally agree, Lighter. I think some have an agenda, but I think the education factor in this can do nothing but good......just intrigued as to why it got that classification.......and as to how the studio PR will handle it given it has been billed as a family film.....

Yea right.  George puts up another contest to meet him and those "I ain't donating" naysayers will be the first in line to throw their money and hats into the ring!
