Quote of the Day

”Because I’m on stage.”
    – Michael Douglas, responding to query on his recent Stage 4 throat cancer diagnosis on the Late Show with David Letterman.   

Douglas is in the midst of radiation and chemotherapy treatment.  Telling the drama of the dilemma in a calm, collected manner. Plugging the new movie Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.  Pausing occasionally to sip from a water bottle.   

Letterman is in awe of his aplomb.  ”…But you look so good and you don’t sound like you have throat cancer.  Why is that”?

A real-life Oscar-winning moment in the category of grace under pressure.  How to perform if you’re in the hot seat — whether it’s a job interview, Senate hearing or analyst conference call.
