BEYOND THE ABRUPT CANCELATION OF ROSEANNE

Life can be unpredictable.  You can be on a hit television series that gets canceled after only nine episodes.  Everything was done right.  The scripts were perfect.  The casting was on target.  But one unfortunate tweet typed by the lead actress and everything goes to heck.  And now everybody is unemployed and looking for what to do next.  Thankfully, Sarah Gilbert was already on a successful talk show panel on the Talk so having the reboot (And also tenth season) of Roseanne get canceled after nine episodes isn't going to effect her income too much.  However, Sarah Gilbert was among the lucky ones.  As for others who were employed by the canceled sitcom Roseanne who wasn't so lucky, time will tell.  Perhaps Roseanne Barr should've avoided calling former President Barack Obama aid Valerie Jarrett an ape.  Even if Roseanne Barr thought that Valerie Jarrett was Caucasian and not a multiracial combination of African-American, Creole (French and African), Caucasian Scottish & Native American as well as being born in Iran, calling somebody an ape is still not a good thing to do.  It's better to call somebody an ape to yourself as long as you don't utter such a thing out loud.  It's when certain words are uttered to certain people (who have centuries of issues about certain words) that everything goes to heck in a handbasket.  Even if you never intended the remark to be viewed in such a manner, the perception alone can still be damaging.
And as I'm lost in thought in the Springtime, here are some photos of Sara Gilbert.
