TelevisionWeek's new blog by World Poker Tour boss Steven Lipscomb marks this publication's second blog by a member of the television industry. As the founder of WPT, Steve often is credited with starting the televised poker boom. He's also known to say a controversial thing or two.

Just as Rich Goldfarb, senior VP of sales for National Geographic Channel, offered candid insight into the upfront advertising selling period, Steve plans to pull no punches in discussing the people, practices and pitfalls of the television business.

And remember: TVWeek.com encourages you to respond to what you read here. So feel free to post comments on Steve's blog.

Just another plane ride . . .

Just another plane . . .

When we stepped onto the nearly empty flight to San Francisco today, the effects of 9/11 were evident.

How many people decided not to fly today?

How many people started to book a flight, then realized . . .?

I wonder how many?

I mourn the losses of that day: the lives, the aftermath . . .

But, most of all I mourn the innocence. Our lost innocence.

Five years and counting . . .
