  1. Breaking: al franken...

    Common sense, anyone? https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/17/us/politics/franken-sexual-abuse-mistake-apology.html?mabReward=CTM6&recid=0wmB8u3YROtOKB094n8cQUbltvG&recp=7&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&region=CColumn&module=Recommendation&src=rechp&WT.nav=RecEngine
  2. I Just Watched...

    I found it: The title is "William and Mary" by Roald Dahl, on Tales of the Unexpected (ca 1980).
  3. I Just Watched...

    I remember this but I too cannot come up with the program. I seem to think that it was on a weekly half-hour show. I think it was based on a story by Roald Dahl.

    Yeah, Bert, but as it is often said, the burden of proof is on them, not you. You didn't know Christopher Hitchins, but he maintained that anything asserted without proof can be dismissed without proof.
  5. Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris? I thought I was looking at Phil Simms and Troy Aikman. I'm going through some of these, Rich. Going from one post to another is like turning the pages of a good book. Glad you resurrected the photos. Not in vain. L
  6. Actually, a retweet is where Tweety taut it taw a putty tat. Elmer Fudd might call it a weepwost.

    If he had, she would have certainly made a different charge. (Think: Larry David's 5-second rule)
  8. We know what a retweet is. This is a re-post.
  9. Breaking: al franken...

    The photo is in bad taste, but not a molestation nor a grope. Either would have awakened her. As to the kiss, she at least knew there would be a kiss in the skit. Franken goes to far but the setting of the incident is a mitigating circumstance. It was not as if he yanked her aside in some secret place and kissed her like that. Franken is in deep trouble but I wouldn't lump him in with Roy Moore. It remains to be seen if a distinction can be made by the frenzied media and rabid scandal mongers.
  10. What's Missing From TCM

    I use to do the PJ thing too, only the TV wasn't on. I would sit in front of the TV admiring the contours of the blank screen. I would yell out o mom, "Can I turn it on now?" "No, not yet." Apparently something had to be on. But I sat patiently, admiring the cabinet or testing the swivel. We had a Philco too, not a console, rather it was a box TV on a swivel stand. Fancy. In San Diego, we got most of the channels you list with only a slightly compromised reception. Channel 7 was a little iffy and 9 and 11, nothing at all. But we watched Roller Derby and Jai Alai on 5 with good ole Dick Lane. And every Saturday night, the good ole Fabulous 52 on Channel 2, referring to a year's worth of movies. It would be interesting to know a typical playlist for a given year. If memory serves, 3 was from Santa Barbara, no chance for that. I think 5 had a cartoon show with Tom Hatten of those Looney Tunes cartoons. Who was the host of Cartoon Carousel I see a face but no name. Without those LA stations, we would have only 6, 8, and 10, all network affiliates. Some of my mentions above might precede you (maybe).
  11. But..... Don't You Care?

    I, for one, don't care to watch a video that I don't know anything about. Please improve your threads by introducing your videos. Teaser thread titles and noncommittal video titles really suck. Are you able to articulate the matter? If so, I (and perhaps others) might be a little more attentive and you won't have so many moribund threads on the Board.
  12. They could have made her look it. She would have been great.
  13. From around the galaxy

    The President (and presumably Council) of the National Association for the Betterment of Hole Punches will be in touch with you soon.
