A Message to My Readers...

Many of my readers have written to me wondering why I've been writing so infrequently these days. It's simple. I've been crazy busy putting together the Adrienne Shelly Foundation's inaugural fundraising gala and Ebay auction, both of which are tomorrow night (Monday Nov 12). The gala is in NYC, and will feature music by Alanis Morissette, and a reading of Adrienne's script THE MORGAN STORIES, featuring Edie Falco, Matt Dillon, Mary-Louise Parker, Ally Sheedy, Gina Gershon, Jason Patric and others. The auction runs through next Sunday. I've also been busy producing SERIOUS MOONLIGHT, a script Adrienne wrote after WAITRESS, which is directed by Cheryl Hines and shoots in LA in 3 weeks. We will soon be announcing an amazing cast. As for politics, my Republican pals will be pleased to know that in just another week or two I will be able to get back to much more frequent writing. I know how much you guys miss me when I'm gone. And to my terrific Lib loyalists, who've always stood by me patiently during this past year of tragedy, thanks for the support...and see ya soon.

......TICKETS ARE NOW ON SALE for the November 12 inaugural Adrienne Shelly Foundation Fundraising Gala at New York University's Skirball Center for the Performing Arts. To learn more about our mission, to make a tax-deductible donation, and to purchase tickets, please visit our website. Every contribution helps preserve Adrienne's legacy, allows us to help others, and creates something positive out of this tragedy.

    All the best to you Rob. It sounds like a good project and man cannot live by blogging alone!
    I look forward to reading your observations on the coming election. Political junkies of all stripes will be building towards the ultimate climax of our crazy political arena.

    So glad things are going so well with the Foundation and I wish you continuing success in that worthwhile endeavor. Also, thank you for assuring me and all of us that you will soon resume your former schedule of writing. I certainly look forward to that. Your voice is very much needed. Thanks.

    Barry Bonds joins the Bill Clinton club! No, he didn't rape anyone, he's been indicted on Perjury and Obstruction of Justice.

    I just watched The Waitress for the first time tonight - what a beautiful film! And sadly, I also found out tonight about your wife's tragic departure. I have been a fan of hers since I was a teen and saw "Big Girl's Don't Cry...They Get Even!" ;)
    While you and I have very different political views, my heart breaks for your loss...and I think the foundation you started is brilliant! Blessings and hope to you and your family.
