Charlie Rose' by Samuel Beckett
Something has happened to PBS favorite "Charlie Rose." The erudite conversations and sober intellectualism have been replaced by an absurd world where illogic, inane dialogues, and open hostility rule. The one-on-one interview between Charlie and his guest begins as usual but quickly goes awry, so much so that Charlie is warned that, somewhere, a man named "Steve" is "not happy." But who is "Steve" and why is he angry? And why does the mere mention of his name stop Charlie cold?

When I lived in Los Angels (until 10 years ago), I loved to watch the Charlie Rose show. Seeing him after so many years on this "funny" video, made me remember good old times. While Charlie looks tired, I kept my energy. Maybe he too should try the subliminals I am using daily.
I am now going to YouTube to look if there are some more videos with him. I am wishind Charlie Rose well.

Charlie Rose does some very good interviews.
BUT, his questions go on and on...and he insists
on demonstrating his knowledge of a subject
to the detriment of the guests answer.
