The AG has ordered an investigation of the death of Jeffrey Epstein. Thanks to James Comey and the Obama administration almost nobody trusts the government to conduct an honest one.


In a thread on Twitter Popehat made a pretty good point about incompetence in organization in order to counter those like me who assume Mr. Epstein was murdered. I must confess that any argument that presupposes the incompetence of those who work for government is a pretty strong one.


While it might be the right financial decision for the shareholders for Universal to scarp the move Hunt I don’t like it. My thought was let the movie be released and let those who don’t want to see it not go to it, but then again my concern is the 1st amendment not profit here.


There has been a lot of shock and snide comments about a lioness eating her newborn cubs in a zoo in Germany. I’m not shocked at animals acting like animals, I’m only shocked when supposedly civilized people do.

Finally I recently purchased the classic 1935 movie Captain Blood which was the launching pad for Errol Flynn and the then 19 year old now 103 year old Olivia de Havilland. I’m surprised at how many scenes I’m seeing for the 1st time that were cut from my VHS copy and hope that de Havilland gets at least a few cents from my purchase as she’s entertained me my entire life.
