Still a scene by scene remake of “Goldfinger”. Except who has chilled root beer instead of champagne?
It’s very lazy history to label the Democrats as strictly party of racism. If you want to be accurate, you have to look at the last 150+ years of American partisan politics including the fall of the Whigs and the rise of the Republicans in the 1850s and the “Know-Nothings” during that period as well. The Democrats had members in the north and south (who weren’t completely politically aligned) but the southern plantation owners controlled much of the political class. Abolitionists had strength in the north and when the Whigs collapsed, the Republicans arrived with two factions….the moderates (Lincoln) and the Radicals who largely wanted an end to slavery and equal rights for blacks.
After the Civil War, we had Reconstruction which had a birth of a black middle class (which my family benefited from), only to be squelched by the election of 1876, which led to three decades of new Jim Crow segregation laws. Fast forward to the 1950s/60s, the civil rights movement didn’t just have friends who were just Republicans or just Democrats. The effort to keep the racist status quo wasn’t on partisan lines but much more on location in the country and other factors.
But the after effects did shape the current partisan landscape. Many white southern Democrats felt disaffected or downright hostile to the party after Kennedy and Johnson embraced the civil rights legislation which led to many leaving the party over the next 20 years. There is a reason why the term “Reagan Democrats” showed up in the early 80s. These were Democrats who fit into this pattern. These days we call them Republicans. The liberal northern Republicans either joined the Democrats or went non-affiliated.
My 13 yr old daughter was in photography class this past year so she’d get it.
He played the THX demo…
One of my college friends was actually in “Private Parts” in a leading role. This is funny to read again.
The original airing never answered what happened to the misfit toys and people complained loudly. Videocraft came back and filmed the scene where Rudolph and Santa come back for them and added it to the 1965 broadcast….and it’s easily the best scene of the film.
Saw it last night. It’s a fine Star Wars movie. It’s not going to be “Citizen Kane”. Honestly the best time to see a Star Wars movie is as a child, as portrayed in today’s comic. I saw Star Wars in 1977 at age 12 and it was the perfect age. As adults, we tend to overthink and romanticize our childhood experiences like this.
The Titans’ Ryan Succop started the year on IR. They brought in a replacement kicker who stunk, brought in a second kicker who stunk, brought Succop back from IR and found out he couldn’t do kickoffs so they hired a kickoff specialist who started ok and then stunk. And Succop then went 1-6 on field goals and was just placed back on IR since his knee injury clearly isn’t healed and he’s stinking. Our new kicker starts this weekend. Pray for the Titans.
I’d go with Handsome Dan (the O.G. Bulldog mascot)
