Al Gore and The Sopranos
I have also written about The Sopranos, and what happens when my political world collides with that brilliant show.
Conclusion: Have you heard the story about Al Gore and the last episode of The Sopranos? From The Progress Report:
Al Gore is a ”die‑hard” Sopranos fan, but was going to have to miss last month's season finale because he was scheduled to be on a plane to Istanbul. So Gore called Brad Grey, the chairman of Paramount, and asked for an advance copy.Enough said, Al Gore ought to be re-elected.
After originally refusing, Grey eventually ”had a Halliburton‑made steel case, containing a copy of the episode, delivered to the tarmac where Mr. Gore's plane sat in Chicago. The case was locked with a code. ... Mr. Gore could not open it until the plane was in the air, when he was instructed to call Mr. Grey's office for the numeric code.”
