If you want to avoid the debates tonight how about some fabulous skating? Here is the link to watch the live stream of the ITNY gala this evening: http://www.icetheatre.org/index.php?id=480 The Gala is honoring "Mr. Debonair" Richard Dwyer, who is one of the most amazing people in figure skating. IMO. If you want to learn more about him, listen or read the transcript of my interview with him. Helping to honor him on the ice are performances with Ryan Bradley, Nicole Bobek, Navarro/Bommentre, the Kerrs, and the ITNY cast. Here is also my interview with ITNY founder Moira North and Artistic Director Douglas Webster, if you want to learn more about them. So wish I could be at the Gala in person tonight myself, since all the big names in skating are there tonight. But live streaming is the next best thing! I've heard from people who say the show over the weekend that it was amazing.
