Re: “Never Give a Sucker an Even Break (NR)

Don't miss. Fields was a genius and this was one of this best, along with "The Bank Dick".

Re: “A Streetcar Named Denied

It comes down to a basic issue of fairness. The streetcar is a wonderful experience. Over the summer I sometimes rode it just for fun, but it is also quite useful. A handicapped person simply has the right to use it. Do you really want to tell some veteran who lost his legs in Iraq that she isn't able to, and that you are to cheap to come up with a sensible solution?

Re: “Geeking through School

Schools need a system in which teachers could instruct students to take out their phones and text the teacher an answer to a question, or an opinion on some matter.
The texts would then appear on a screen for discussion. The discusion could be entirely text based with the teacher highlighting certain comments, or could be a mix of discussion and text.
Spare texting devices could be available for those students who have no phone.
But thanks to cheap politicians who are slashing budgets, no school has the money, and even when the economy recovers the public school haters will not allow for the expenditures needed for such a system.

Re: “Freedom Rides Again

These events are examples of heroism. They also show how the actions of a few can bring attention to important issues.
Finally, when we see groups like the Tea Party trying to rewrite history for their own political reasons, it is important for our nation that we remember real history.
Then it is harder for the liars to fool us.

Re: “Richard Scott

Richard always does a great show at the Park. Plus, it's free and air conditioned. Not exactly a partying jazz crowd, but smoke free and the people are nice. It's a good time. More folks should stop by and listen, then go grab some lunch or a beer.

Re: “New Orleans "desolate"?

I live in Burlington, NC, and am spending the summer in NOLA.
If you want "desolate" come to Burlington, where the biggest excitement is watching the "paint drying champeenship".
Wandering Decatur and listening to Smokey at BMC knocks the hell out of anything that my burg offers.

Re: “Psycho (NR)

Terrible description of the movie.
Here is what it is about:
An attractive woman disappears when she stumbles upon an erie hotel operated by a strange young man named Norman and his invalid mother. Two people, the woman's lover and her sister, team up to investigate and soon find that Norman may not be what he appears.
Be prepared for the famous shower scene, which in it's time was considered one of the goriest in the history of cinema.
