laura ling and euna lee, the 2 journalists sentenced to 12 years of hard labor in north korea were rescued and returned yesterday – by bill clinton. i couldn’t help but well up a bit when laura ling described how she was taken from the labor camp into a room that she had not been before (very scary) only to see president bill clinton standing there – what a moment! almost makes it worth the 140 days of imprisonment . . .
according to the ny post, “A key player in Clinton’s high-flying diplomatic mission to rescue Laura Ling and Euna Lee was entertainment mogul Steve Bing, a longtime “Friend of Bill” who lent the ex-president his private Boeing 737.
The multimillionaire mogul paid about $200,000 in fuel and other costs that came with the trans-Pacific flight.”
how does one get to do this kind of stuff? i want to make a difference like that. i want to rescue someone. or, at least be the person who offers my boeing 737 and $200,000 worth of gas for the ex-president to do it. i haven’t even experienced my 15 minutes of fame yet and i want so much more.
i don’t necessarily have to be president, or rescue someone, i would be content just being on tv everyday like katie curic. i often wonder how she does it . . . especially when she did the today show and had to leave for work every morning by 4:30 am, all while raising her children alone, maintaining a home in the city, a house in the hamptons, attending fundraisers with fabulous men every night of the week while simutaneously writing a book. where does one find the time? i’m only trying to end the diabetes & obesity epidemic in this country and barely have the time to walk ivan 4 times a day. i must adjust my schedule. change begins today.
