Returning, Briefly, To The Great Toilet Seat Debate
|There you go. Problem solved.|
The good folks over at The Dollop podcast, by my estimation, are guilty of this. It’s a good podcast that mainly focuses on the seedier history of the United States of America. That I don’t mind at all. Americans need to remember the terrible events and practices and policies that we, as a nation, have striven to overcome and do better for all Americans and the world. We need to remember we’re not perfect and never were, but we come a long way.
I wish the good folks at The Dollop would be more willing to acknowledge that.
But, that’s not what set me off. Listen and I’ll explain.
Mike Ehrmantraut Might Be A Little Too Great
|“You wanted me to talk. I talked.”|
Mike is wise and resourceful. He knows how to get things done. He knows how to read people. He can sniff out trouble. But midway through season four of Better Call Saul, he seems to be just too knowledgeable about too much.
He’s still a great character and Banks is a terrific actor.
I even attempt a Mike Ehrmantraut impression.
Clara Bow – Time Traveler?
|That’s a laptop?|
This probably won’t go as big as the supposed time traveler thought to be seen in 1924 film footage of a Hollywood premiere that was included in the extras of a Charlie Chaplin DVD. In that film an older woman can be seen talking on what to modern eyes appears to be a cell phone. It isn’t.
I would be surprised if this photo gets anyone seriously thinking that’s a laptop.
The You Must Remember This podcast does an excellent job in their show focusing on Clara Bow.
The files concerning the Jacob Wetterling abduction and murder have been made public and Stearns County, MN, where the crime took place, has a new sheriff and he’s not pleased with how the investigation was handled. Sheriff Don Gudmundson held a press conference in which he was highly critical of the Stearns County sheriff department and the FBI. He’s not going to have many friends in law enforcement.
The In The Dark podcast does an excellent job reporting what happened in the Wetterling case in their first season.
Three Cool Things
|It’s like a painting by a Renaissance master.|
2) The NFL has gone a little overboard in their attempt to protect the quarterback. This instructional video shows the proper way to sack a quarterback. Yes, there is a flag thrown, but that was because the pillow wasn’t in place in time.
3) The screen shot (see above) I grabbed from a video showing one of my all-time favorite comic book illustrators sketching Captain America has something very cool in it. Other than the drawing, that is. Just take a look at what is on his collar.
Music heard on the show…
