I spent last weekend watching the first season of the fantastically addictive Showtime series Homeland with the amazing Claire Danes as CIA agent Carrie Mathison and Damian Lewis as Marine Sergeant Nicholas Brody who were so believable and compelling and realistic you felt you were part of the story and yelling advice to them from the sidelines. When do you ever do that? If you can't afford Showtime, (and really, who can?) check it out at your library. You'll be glad you did...and maybe find yourself looking into CIA job requirements. They might need a cartoonist. Or maybe, Showtime...you might want to add one to the cast!
