    Angry I feel cheated

    I've been awaiting the web site posting of the season 21 schedule for New Yankee Workshop for some weeks now. Well, it's posted and I, for one, feel let down if not cheated.
    The "new" season will actually be 26 episodes of PAST PROJECTS with a new intro by Norm. If that don't beat all. an entire year without one new project on NYW. I'm not happy.
    Before you ask - yes, I made my thoughts known on the NYW web site via the link to submit email to the show. I don't know the reason for this change, I hope it's not anything to do with Norm's health (someone noted here that his hand was shaking a lot during a finishing segment this past season), but I think some sort of explanation on the site is in order.

    Larry, I think you should take over. You could call the show, "Rednek wudwerkin"

    The network should just hire me and promote the show as comedy.

    I wonder if Norm is having health problems..... I swear I've seen his hands tremble if he didn't hold onto something or have it resting on the bench. I hope this isn't the case as if it wasn't for Norm I wouldn't be into woodwork like I am

    Aloha,
    Aloha,

    They could have you as the student and someone like Larry or Tod as the teacher. The city slicker and the hillbilly would appeal to a wide range of demographics. The show could also feature little side trips, like Larry taking you bow hunting, and you taking Larry on a tour of the NYC subways.
