CLUBHOUSE ON WHEELS:
Road Tripping (creativity & madness, intrigue & lunacy, angels & devils) and The Investigator (Santa Barbara News-Press) column

Thank you, Ricky Gervais, for an opening monologue worthy of Epiphany, exposing Hollywood's hypocrisy.
"Apple roared into the TV game with 'The Morning Show,' a superb drama about the importance of dignity and doing the right thing made by a company that runs sweatshops in China," he said." So you say you’re 'woke', but the companies you work for, Apple, Amazon, Disney... If ISIS had a streaming service you would be calling your agents."
Gervais concluded his scathing monologue by warning the celebrities not to make any political or "woke" statements when accepting their awards.
"You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything," he declared. "You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg."
