B) A cop parks in plain sight part way down the hill, reminding people they

My picks would be movies based on classic stories -- Ben Hur (1959), The Ten Commandments (1956), The Four Feathers (1939), A Christmas Carol (1951, 1970, 1988).

Re: OT This is No Way to Run a Riot!

All the people beaten or killed in these cases are black. Is the media ignoring cases where white people are killed or beaten, or is there a racial content to these incidents?

Re: Interesting LBYM article

I had a LBYM friend that got married. When his wife found out he had a $10K CD, she *had* to spend it. In her family, everyone spent every cent they made. The concept of saving anything was simply beyond comprehension.

Re: Justin Bieber Roast

I always thought a roast was making jokes at the expense of a person you actually respected.

I think that's just what they told the target/victim.


I thought I read someplace that JB requested to be roasted?

Re: Dig on usa and Syfy's 12 monkeys

I've been letting the episodes of Dig accumulate without watching. I'm not a big fan of portrayals of religious zealotry.

Re: Minimum wage - Seattle style

It saddens me to see your disrespect for your neighbors. Are they in their 80's or 90's? I have a friend in his late 80's who is sharp as a tack as are many older people.
