I didn’t consider it news when everyone was going crazy the other day about Obama’s State of the Union happening on February 2. It wasn’t confirmed and after all this time I would really mind waiting another week. Plus I really doubted that anyone in Washington would care if we caused a ruckus.
But when I heard today that the US government bowed to the will of the millions of Lost viewers… wow, that is newsworthy.
Check this out. This quote comes from a New York times blog:
Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary, told reporters today that he could “allay fears” of those who watch “Lost.” He said the president’s speech will not be on Feb. 2. “I don’t foresee a scenario in which the millions of people that hope to finally get some conclusion in ‘Lost’ are preempted by the president,” Mr. Gibbs said.
Insanity. As a community we are powerful. I love that Lost is in quotations.
And look, even Damon Lindelof was impressed by the outcome.
