Out Of Touch 

Yesterday was long. From 8 am to 1 am this morning on the road. There was an odd feeling being out of touch while the market tanked and the vice presidential candidates tangled on TV. On the other hand, given the news lately, it wasn't that bad.

The job yesterday was media training. I had the part of a "black-hatted" inquisitor whose task was to make a president of a company squirm. To the president's credit, he did well and made few errors. I don't think I would have handled the questions thrown at him as well as he did. It is hard to keep one's cool under relentless badgering. There is an urge to tell the questioner to go some place hot for eternity. The president hung in and proved himself a good spokesperson for his firm.
