Another favor, Trump likely greenlighted the Israeli assassination of a Iranian nuke scientist.

Some thing like that.
So after getting the banned message a few times, I disconnected my proxy server and was able to access the site fine.
Weird.

This is nuts. What kind of union does such a thing?

Pamela Tiffin, star of such films as Torture Me But Kill Me With Kisses, and No One Will Notice You're Naked, has passed away. From what I recall of her appearance in Viva Max!, people might have noticed if she was naked.

RIP Chuck Yeager, age 97. I read once (perhaps in "The Right Stuff"?) that the reason so many airplane pilots had the same accent was because they were using Chuck Yeager's. One person who was famous for all the right reasons.

Hard to believe it was 40 years ago today that John Lennon died. One of those occasions that I'll always remember where I was when I heard the news--just two blocks away from the Dakota, in my apartment on West 71st.

The opposite of a celebrity. His photo belongs with the entry for "cool" in any dictionary. I have mixed feelings about his strafing missions in WW2, and later missions in Vietnam, but appreciate his being honest in saying he did too.

Very sad news for the veterans on this site. I just heard from Gary Marantz's son Dylan that his dad passed away on Sunday. Thought you all should know. Gary was a fixture here for many years under the handle "marantzo." R.I.P. to a smart and lovely man and a real film fan.

Gary taught me everything I ever needed to know about Winnipeg.

Gary and I enjoyed exchanging notes on living on the chilly prairies, and other topics. We had both grown up on the plains, then moved to a big coastal city, then moved back - a trajectory that's not uncommon in these parts. One of the few online people I almost met FTF - he was driving through Nebraska (where I lived at that time) en route to a sunbelt location and was going to stop by, but that was a week I was in Colorado and so it didn't happen. To my regret. What Billy said: he was a smart and lovely and funny person and I'd add that he had that foundation of common sense that adverse climates can confer. I miss him.

I was lucky enough to meet Gary IRL in NYC and, yes, what bartist said, which is what I said. We used to joke about how he was three months younger than me (and he would correct my grammar on that--"it's younger than I," he would say). I shall miss him too.

Yes, Gary was unforgettable. I did meet him and spent a few days showing him around my part of AZ. We even drove down the bumpy road to John McCain’s house where we were turned back by men guarding the place.

He shared so much of himself with us. His painting in Paris, his cab driving in NYC, his marriages, and his hilarious fiction. A sweet man. I’m happy to have known him.

sigh. RIP Dawn Wells, of Covid-19. She should have stayed on the Island.

We're all on an island.

Part of the Trump Entertainment Survivor series I'm told.[/i]
