    Problem with "A Slight Case of Murder."

    I missed it this time, but it's a movie I always enjoy. And I never tire of mentioning that Ruth Donnelly's uncle was Mayor of Trenton, New Jersey.

    You are right, Princess. The film based on his first Broadway play that was condemned by the Legion of Decency was Men in White. The cast of the play included many of the Group Theatre greats, including Clifford Odets in an acting role. Among other subjects, the topic of abortion was addressed. https://www.ibdb.com/broadway-production/men-in-white-11758

    Husband and Wife

    Thanks Princess. This New York-born couple consists of an actress who began her career as a child star and had a prolific career in silent film, early talkies, and early television; and an award-winning playwright whose first Broadway play was made into a film that was condemned by the Legion of Decency. His second Broadway play was made into an even more famous film. The couple had no other spouses and were married for more than 40 years, until her death.

    BREXIT

    I have to go to London later in April. I hope it has all calmed down by then, but what will ultimately happen is anybody's guess. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/mar/21/mays-appeal-falls-flat-as-eu-seizes-control-of-brexit-date

    Elizabeth Warren Pres. Candidacy.....

    I'm sorry to say that part of politics is theater. There's something about Warren's delivery that is off-putting. Rachel Maddow, whom I really like, has it too. It's a manner of delivery, of dropping the ends of sentences, and other tricks/tics that don't suit a politician. I don't like Warren's manner, but I would certainly vote for Warren if she were the nominee. The East and West Coasts will vote for the Democrat. We need to get back those Democratic states like Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan, without which Trump would not have won. And we need to try to win Florida and Ohio. Madame Omar may have already destroyed the Democrats chances in Florida.

    Elizabeth Warren Pres. Candidacy.....

    I like some of Warren's ideas, but I hope she doesn't get the nomination. I'm a pragmatist. I don't think she could win. Nothing to do with the fact that she's a woman. I voted for Hillary every chance I got. I like Klobachar. In the end, I'll vote for the Democratic candidate. I hope it will be Biden, Klobachar, or Castro; or maybe a Biden ticket with one of the other two. But I hope it's not Bernie -- it's the same dame! (Sorry) 😀
