Answer to Yesterday’s Trivia Question:  Big Block of Cheese Day speech is given on what former primetime series?  THE WEST WING on an episode titled Those Crackpots and These WomenHere is Chief of Staff Leo McGarry’s Big Block of Cheese speech to the senior staffers:  “Andrew Jackson, in the main foyer of his White House had a big block of cheese. The block of cheese was huge – over two tons. And it was there for any and all who might be hungry. Jackson wanted the White House to belong to the people, so from time to time, he opened his doors to those who wished an audience. It is in the spirit of Andrew Jackson that I, from time to time, ask senior staff to have face-to-face meetings with those people representing organizations who have a difficult time getting our attention.”  Gotta love this show.  Kudos to:  Andrew Goldman-HBO/NY; Terry Ewert-Big Ten Network/Short Hills; Beverly Tilden-Comcast Spotlight/EDT; Bud Breheney-Kantar Media Audiences/NY; Lisa Richards-Harpo Prods/Chicago; Pam Tierney/Chicago; Dan Radman-OMD/Chicago; Pete George-WFLD/Chicago; Stacey Tenenbaum-Covert Affairs Casting/LA; Arthur Greenwald-Arthur Greenwald Media/LA; Evan Weinstein-The Amazing Race/LA; Cammie Buerry-FFE adventas/Las Vegas; Felicity Clive-Turner Int’l/Sydney; Robin Goret-Misaloka Marketing & Research/London; David Garrett-Miniature Studios/Buenos Aires; Elize Morgan-Slainte Pictures/Toronto
