0:55 Cab driver rails on TV

1:55 Ed Rabel, for NBC, in Nicaragua, can’t get his lines right. He doesn’t really know what he’s talking about, but when the clip airs, it looks like he does.

3:18 Cab driver hates TV these days, and the people who watch it. Says he’s more informed than the so-called educated in the ivory towers.

3:35 Jody Procter marvels at the previous clip.

4:00 Judy Markey wants you to keep watching.

4:10 Erika Becker talks to her father about her “Several Policy” [Cerebral Palsy]. She explains what the disease does and how it made her feel. “What’s the worst part of having a handicap?” “I think being made fun of. That really hurts.” “Inside, even grownups treat me differently…but that’s because I’m different.” By Eddie Becker.

10:35 Judy talks about why that clip was the best, is like a Christmas card in your heart. Judy calls Erika o n the phone and chats for a bit.

11:25 Andrew Jones, from Boston, went down to Los Angeles to tape the riots.

12:14 Andrew Jones in LA. Cesar Noriega drives the cameraman to the site of siege. Hundreds of police. Mia Ruiz, a protestor, insults the policemen.

13:00 Rioters burned down a piano house, where his son studied music for three years. Three days ago, the site held a piano recital, with Steinways galore, and now the wrecked and looted site represents the downfall of civilization. Man talks about the looters.

15:30 Judy opens a package from a viewer, a 3/4″tape, where kids talk about issues. Judy argues about Tipper Gore.

16:55 The video asks “kids” (actually young adults), about what they would do if president. One girl says that people are too much into money and power. Judy calls the girl “rich.” A young girl says she wants to help trees and rivers. Judy calls her rich too, because she didn’t say anything about jobs. A “Jerry Brown for President” button comes on the screen, and a notice that his committee had paid for the video. The Camcorder Tonight crew is annoyed.

18:30 Millie Mae Smithy. Sends out a video to that special someone.

19:30 Doug Skinner sings and plays the ukelele by the side of the road. A woman behind him plays the violin.
