The plot to kill John Wayne

John Wayne as Genghis Khan  OMFG!

I beg to differ with the chap who placed this #7 on the Top 10 Miscast Movie Roles. It's a no-contest Numero-uno.   My college room-mate Jerry Bowman and I snuck into the Beltsville Drive-In (now a Costco Store) to see this piece of crap.  After about 30 minutes we experienced buyer's remorse, and snuck back out. It's a tribute to Duke that this role didn't kill him.

Tea begging?

Backstory: I wanted  a  "teabagging" picture for a post.  I asked my neighbor if she'd let me tea-bag her, and take a picture, and she said, of course.  When I started to put the tea bags on her eyes, she asked, "what's this?"

Me and MoSup just had a discussion about this, and I'm surprised by what seems to be --   role-reversal is the wrong term. Let's say "doctrinaire reversal." Here's the set-up.

Panera: Pay what you can afford

Panera Bread Co. has reopened a downtown Clayton location as a nonprofit where customers can pay what they can afford.

“Take what you need, leave your fair share,” says a sign at the entrance of the Saint Louis Bread Company Cares Café. Patrons who can’t pay are asked to volunteer their time.

The café, which reopened Sunday as a nonprofit, has cashiers who provide receipts with suggested prices and direct customers to the store’s five donation boxes. The menu is the same, except for the day-old baked goods brought in from sister stores in the area.

“I’m trying to find out what human nature is all about,” Ron Shaich, who stepped down as Panera’s CEO last week but remains as chairman, told USA Today. “My hope is that we can eventually do this in every community where there’s a Panera.”

 I think it's a safe bet to count on people to do the right thing; Mo Sup said people can  no longer to be trusted.  She's basing that on the government the majority have elected.  But, the people who voted for, and continue to support Obama are, yes, politically ignorant, even plain stupid, but are not liars and croo -  Crap. Never mind.  Sigh.

Brazen Deceit: Obama, BP
Lied About "Top Kill" Timing, Success

I spent five hours, in fits and starts, on this latest outrage,  and wiped the screen a dozen times.  I  can't be coherent on the matter.   Obama gave his "I am in charge here" press conference Thursday, knowing fully well that the "top kill" attempt to stop the leak had been halted the night before.  Rush has it all anyway.  Obama is special.
