Liddy, thank you for coming in. I know you have to read your books with Sleepy Bear in half an hour so I'll make this brief. You're almost one now, and you have to understand the way the world works. Now, I don't know if you've seen 'America's Kidz Got Singing' but it's a hit! 'Variety' called it "boffo" and they don't throw that word around lightly. However, there are large portions of the show that feature Jenna insulting children not much older than yourself. I know what you're thinking, "Do you really care about the bottom line more than the feelings of helpless innocence? That's cruel." Well guess what Liddy: life is cruel. Sometimes, in business, there's collateral damage and if you think I'm going to turn my back on a 10-2, 4-2 in the demo just because I feel bad ... just because those kids had the same scared look on their faces that you have when that dog got too close to your stroller in the park; and yes, being a parent is like wearing your heart outside your body and I don't want you to know that the world is really a scary, disappointing place, you shouldn't have to know that, not yet! Oh god! I have to cancel the show! [reaches for the phone] What are you doing Liddy? Are you touching my hand because ... you're a baby and you're developing your fine motor skills, or are you trying to tell me something? What are you trying to tell me?
