What I'm throwing away today:
a postcard advertising a 2006 fringe festival show, Every Nigger Is a Star, written and performed by Mario Burrell of Rent
a smaller pink RSVP postcard for a November 1991 IRTS event about Talk Shows ($45 per person)
an equally small RSVP postcard for a September 1992 IRTS event with FCC chairman Alfred C. Sikes ($50 per person)
a clipping from Assemblywoman Adele Cohen's newsletter. She's photographed with Hillary Clinton and some other official types who were joining forces to keep New York City's only active military base, the Fort Hamilton Army Base, open.
a 9/8/98 receipt from the Trader Joe's in Scarsdale for 14 items (I was able to buy more at a time when I lived in the suburbs and had a car)
an April 1992 mailing from IRTS Under-30's for a program called "Selling in the Cable Arena"; free and only $10 for nonmembers.
a green RSVP card for an IRTS luncheon, "Public Television: Dawn of a New Era or Twilight?," June 18, 1992, for $45, at 12:30, and a flier advertising the panel: Dr. William F. Baker, Les Brown and Dick Hubert.
a green one-page IRTS Under-30s invitation to the Museum of the Moving Image on Saturday Nov. 23rd (it only cost $5 at the time!) with plans to meet for dinner afterward. Wish I had gone!
a blue one-page notice from the IRTS Sports Division (yes, I was a member of that too) for "The Sports Radio Listener! Who Are They? Where Are They? How Do We Know?" on Thurs., Dec. 5, 1991. Tickets only $10 to $20.
a white one-page flyer advertising and IRTS Newsmaker Luncheon on Tues., Nov., 26, 1991, at the Waldorf-Astoria, featuring such notables of the day as Deborah Norville, Maury Povich, Montel Williams and Jenny Jones. Those were the days...
four stapled note pages of notes that I took while I watched "Side Effects"
a doubled-sided missive from Diana M. Gurieva, president of Planned Parenthood of New York City, from Oct. 18, 1989, about President Bush and federal Medicaid Funds for Abortion
a receipt from Marseille dated 10/30/2010 at one in the afternoon. The bill, with tip, came to $65.05. I do hope Brian joined my mom and me for that brunch.
