Ernest called this morning from Maryland. He’s coming back into town tomars; maybe we’ll meet. At his urging, I e-mailed him what mess I have of the script. Maybe he can see a way thru it.

He also suggested that from now on all meetings be business. Fine with me. I hope actual business starts getting accomplished. A first rate producer, who knows what to ask for when and who to ask for it, would go a long way in that direction.
