A moment of Zen during the Golden Globes
Very odd: I'm speaking on the phone to the long-suffering Mrs. Leydon back in Houston (while I'm a hotel room in Dallas) when the Best Director award is announced. (We're both watching the Golden Globes on our respective TVs.) She exclaims: "Oh, Martin Scorsese! That's great! It's about time!" But here's the strange part: She says that about four seconds before I hear the announcement on my TV. I have to ask myself: Do TV signals hit Houston before they hit Dallas? Or what?
