notes on government, sports and popular culture
......Watched an interesting movie on Lifetime last night: Christmas in My Hometown
plays the evil corporate executive who comes to town during holidays to look over the tractor plant and figure out how many workers to lay off. His Faber College
education was serving him well until he caught sight of Melissa Gilbert
driving a forklift.
Of course, you know how the movie turns out. Matheson persuades her to meet him in his hotel room for an hour, after which he shuts the plant down, laying off the town's entire work force.
