Megamajor Media Madness

I'll get this out of the way upfront. Yes, Spo, this week I'm definitely in media whore territory. The periodic cicadas have begun emerging and it's the talk of the town. In a way, it's unfortunate because in everybody's rush to be first with the story, by the time we have really impressive numbers, it will be old news. At any rate, the Good Morning America segment is now scheduled to air tomorrow morning (May 23). Chicago viewers can see an interview on Channel 2 news at 5:00 this afternoon. Channel 5 news will be here for an interview at 2:30 this afternoon. We've seen enough early indications that it looks like a pretty good emergence can be expected this year.

Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my closeup.

Great news! I took tomorrow off for reasons I'll blog tomorrow but now I can catch you on GMA.

I love watching hot, gay scientists on TV. Yeah, I'm weird that way.

We have GMA on right now, hoping to catch you. We never turn the TV on during the day, but for you we made this exception. If you become even more famous, we can say we knew you when!
