I don't know where I'm going to see THE EXPRESS this weekend.

It remains true that I cannot be in more than one place at a time. Thus I have not been able to go to three panels simultaneously, nor have I been able to blog and hang out with my friends at the same time, nor have I been able to sleep and talk at the same time (contrary to appearances around 2:00 this morning).

I do hope, however, to see The Express this weekend even while I am officially attending Bouchercon. I'm not sure where the nearest movie theater to downtown Baltimore is, but I imagine the hotel staff will know.

This week's reading list is postponed until tomorrow, when I should have a little more time. In the meantime, go see The Express, and report back here after.

Clair, let us know what you think of 'The Express.' The television ad campaign was pretty bad. "Spans the gamut of human emotions"..it promised..OK..

I spent two years as researcher on THE EXPRESS, working with three different screenwriters. I've seen the movie at least five times, in versions from the first rough cut to the final version now showing in theaters. I'm seeing it this afternoon in a theater, and looking forward to it.

THE EXPRESS is an emotionally powerful movie, sports film-making at its very best. It is inspiring and heartbreaking in equal measure because it tells a heroic true story. I'm proud and grateful to have been a part of it.
