At least a week before the debate, Lester will select six major topics that will get 15 minutes each. He will ask a question about each topic, and then each candidate will have two minutes to respond. He’ll then fill the rest of the time with follow-up questions.
Here is another reminder, not nearly as important as the Presidential Debate reminder, but you will have a chance to speak to various authors, including myself on Sunday, October 23 at Leon & Lulu in Clawson, MI. For more info, including the authors that will be there, click on the link below.

MOVIE OF THE WEEK
Back to School
It is the back to school time of the year, so what better way to get into the swing of the school year than by watching this terrific film.
When I taught at a local university, I used to have my management students write a report on all the good business practices they observed in this movie.
This movie is both informative and entertaining. I feel one without the other is not a good use of one’s limited time on earth.
MUSIC OF THE WEEK
We need more of this, oh how we need more of this today. I feel so fortunate to have been around during these times.

ART OF THE WEEK
I think we are all familiar with Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.
The following my not be true, but rumor has it that after the painting was finished, Da Vinci and Mona Lisa held a celebration and here is a photo taken by a paparazzo.
Sir Richard Charles Nicholas Branson (born 18 July 1950) is an English business magnate, investor, and philanthropist. He is best known as the founder of Virgin Group, which comprises more than 400 companies.
At the age of sixteen, his first business venture was a magazine called Student. In 1970, he set up a mail-order record business. In 1972, he opened a chain of record stores, Virgin Records, later known as Virgin Megastores. Branson’s Virgin brand grew rapidly during the 1980s, as he set up Virgin Atlantic and expanded the Virgin Records music label.
In March 2000, Branson was knighted at Buckingham Palace for “services to entrepreneurship”. In July 2015, Forbes listed Branson’s estimated net worth at US $5.2 billion.
