I've never made a secret of how much I love SotG. Like, with a passion that burns in the heavens above. Not having it this summer will make that long, sweaty month of August just about unbearable.
Please email HBO and let them know you want SotG back. Talking points to help get your message across:
**How much you love SotG, what it means to you and why it's important to have in DC.
**How the HBO dance provides tremendous brand recognition and loyalty with their esteemed company.
**If you're an HBO subscriber, you might think about cancelling your membership. If you're not a subscriber, you might want to make it clear that you're loathe to consider a subscription now.
**If it's money they're worried about, and you actually would contribute, suggest they put up voluntary donation jars at each screening to help recoup some costs.
Also, if you want to email any other organization that might be able to pick up the slack (I'm looking at you, Turner Classics), then do so. I'll bet a TCM dance will be just as silly and fun as any old HBO dance.
Also, by all means, use the comments to express your support and share SotG memories. We are in a period of mourning.
