AT&T fired me for being sick after 20+ years!

c. 1964 RANKIN/BASS PRODUCTIONS/RICK GOLDSCHMIDT ARCHIVES

AT&T fired me for being sick after 20+ years of good service! I won their EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR AWARD In January, 2008 and put in many quality years there. This firing was done in a sneaky way and I did file a case with THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN RIGHTS. Other senior employees (They now hire people at 1/2 the pay and no benefits under the job title of SERVICE CONSULTANT) , have been let go recently for supposed performance and are collectively trying to get a class action suit started. I am sure you have heard about the OCCUPY WALLSTREET movement. AT&T is one of the problems with AMERICA. I ask that you consider what I have said here, before you support AT&T by buying or adding any of their services.

NEWSDAY

Got a phone call from NEWSDAY for my response to a Professor who wrote a book about how RANKIN/BASS' RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER TV Special has a negative impact on children and sends a negative message?! Isn't it funny how someone is trying to turn a positive message like BE YOURSELF into a negative? Why turn positive energy into negative energy? It isn't healthy. The story runs on Sunday.


JACK DAVIS



Just got off the phone with my good friend Jack Davis! Got his NEW book in the mail today DRAWING AMERICAN POP CULTURE: A CAREER RETROSPECTIVE...which is VERY nice! I like the way it is laid out. It is not a comprehensive collection BUT it has a nice cross section of his work. Jack said he just did a signing in New Jersey for FANTAGRAPHICS and he is glad to be home :) "A nice place to visit BUT I would never want to live there!"
