    This is unusual because I was watching a program last night which discussed this issue in reality and in the movies. Ida Lupino had polio when she was a 16 year-old Starlet in Hollywood. I don't know if this is a well-known fact or not. She went on to become a groundbreaking pioneer actress turned director in the 1950s, making movies and directing TV series. Her films were of special interest about topics concerning women, which were usually taboo at that time. In one film starring dancer Sally Forrest, Ida Lupino explores the autobiographical issue of how an artistic entertainment career can come to an end when it's attacked by polio. The movie is " Never Fear", 1950, directed by Ida Lupino and co-written with her second husband Collier Young. Co-starring in the movie are Keeefe Brasselle and Hugh O'Brian

    Zero-Tolerance

    We need International Observers, International Advocates for children from the United Nations Human Rights Council, UNICEF, The Red Cross, Amnesty International and/or Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) On the Border and at these immigration centers to demand that all the migrants-- with special attention to the forced abandoned children-- are treated properly. The trump administration has created an International Refugee Crisis that did not have to occur. If they refuse to humanely treat these human beings-- these International refugees-- then international law and international organizations should step in and see that it's handled properly, according to international law.

    Institutionalized racism and individualized racism still keep a number of black people behind the average. But what excuse do white people have for so many slackers and suicides and people just not trying, on all these drugs, even though they were born with more advantages than minority people to begin with? Look at all the black people in the middle class--look at all the working class, hard-working black people who came from nothing-- up from slavery, illiteracy, out of the obliterating violence of Jim Crow --without any kind of a hand up. Why do you think we still has so many white people on public assistance and so many white people just giving up today? Sometimes you just see it in generations and generations of lower class white people - - a lot of sociologists are writing books about it today. For years at Christmas time I've done public assistance Christmas baskets that were given by private companies and individuals for those who otherwise wouldn't have a Christmas. Meth that's a real problem in my neck of the woods for poor white people-- I also have volunteered at food banks. I've seen the kind of people who are coming in. Majority-white many older white males. Where you live you must see a lot of them too-- what's your opinion?

    On "Race Films"

    Hollywood's business was about making money and pleasing the public. However, I can think of one producer/ director, Stanley Kramer, who actually formulated a plan to improve the civil rights of black Americans by finding particular topics that would advance their status and by doing so, he propelled one black actor into the mainstream of Hollywood stardom, Sidney Poitier. Kramer was responsible for Poitier starring vehicles like: " The Defiant Ones", "Pressure Point" and "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?" Stanley Kramer also made the Hard movies on Justice for the Holocaust victims of the Nazis of the Third Reich in "Judgment at Nuremberg", one of his most critically acclaimed movies. And one of his most popular films was a court battle between the science of evolution and Fundamentalist Christianity - - "Inherit the Wind". Another early film starring Marlon Brando about soldiers physically disabled in War - - "The Men"--was also ahead of its time. "Home of the Brave and " The Member of the Wedding"were two other films that he made with black characters in non-stereotypical leading roles. Despite Hollywood's reluctance to handle these serious subjects - - Kramer's movies were extremely popular and made a lot of money.

    Glenn Miller Story

    I had the 33 & 1/3 soundtrack album for years. It was very good; Henry Mancini was in charge of it. What he did was to go out and find key members from the original Glenn Miller Orchestra, to play along with the studio musicians. And that's how he got the authentic sound.
