Is it possible that we are due for another Indiana Jones? Please, please, please, please, please! He may be old, but he’s still hotter than all those young twerps!
There is news, then there is NEWS!
“…Harrison Ford’s final outing as Indiana Jones will be “emotional and exciting” as the franchise heads back to its roots after a badly received fourth instalment. Ford is well-known for his portrayal of the archaeologist and adventurer, and has agreed to reprise the role one last time. Indiana Jones 5 will begin shooting next year, and much of the plot line will be centred around the Bermuda Triangle, an area over the North Atlantic Ocean where a number of aircraft are said to have disappeared. “George (Lucas) and Steven (Spielberg) have been working on a script and it’s almost there,” a source explained. “Harrison is on stand-by for filming next year. This looks like being an emotional and exciting conclusion to the franchise, with Indy facing his biggest challenge yet.” The last film in the franchise, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, was released in 2008 and performed well at the box office, but was savaged by critics. Shia LaBeouf played Indiana’s son Mutt Williams, and he will also appear in the new instalment….”
Iconic Cary Grant would be 106 years old today. The Pink Flamingo simply sees the late British actor, who was Ian Flemming’s version of the perfect James Bond, as the perfect man. (sigh). In the biographical Cary Grant, a Celebration of Style, by Richard Torregrossa, I found a “meditation” written by Grant, p. 162-163.
Now Lord you’ve known me a long time
You know me better than I know myself
“…Her Taliban comment is the height of one of these three: ignorance, stupidity, (or) dishonesty. I want someone with energy, someone that wants to change it all. She’s lock step business as usual in a way that should be frightening.” Curt Schilling
In New England two things are sacred. You DO NOT diss those two sacred entities and expect to remain in office for very long. You can trash the USA. You can say something nasty about religion – just pick a religion. Misc. elected officials can be insulted, they are fair game. Same thing holds true with the Kennedys. Insult ‘em, it’s okay.
Coakley can insult Catholics, our troops, and be a total idiot when it comes to national security. She can (sort of) get away with it – while proving she is a total idiot.
BUT – when you diss the Boston Red Sox and their cathedral, Fenway Park, the sin is unpardonable. The only thing she could do that would be worse is insult the memory of Ted Williams.
(Disclaimer: The Pink Flamingo is a National League fan, primarily pulling for the Braves. When pulling for the AL, I support the Red Sox).
(AJ Strata thinks she has managed to sink her campaign).
Or as the guys at HillBuzz put it:
“...Martha Coakley’s practically taken photos of Fenway Park, ripped them up into confetti, thrown them in the air, then had dogs urinate on them. Her attitude is deplorable. It really does appear her true nature is coming out in this campaign: she infuriated us by having one of her goons push a reporter to the ground the other day, and now she’s denigrating the kind of old school campaigning we want to see politicians engage in: going out to meet the voters at places like Fenway Park, which Scott Brown is out there doing…”
By insulting baseball fans and Fenway Park, Coakley has insulted baseball, hotdogs, apple pie, and Ted Williams. Even more importantly – she has proven that she does not even begin to comprehend this nation. She does not understand…
“...The one constant through all the years…has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It’s been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt, and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is a part of our pas… It reminds us of all that once was good, and it could be again….”
That is the basic difference between Democrats and Republicans. We believe in something. We believe in America, hotdogs, apple pie, and baseball. We could even be the best looking political party!
What does Charlton Heston, Ben Hur, and the battle against the pirates have to do with the problems in Mexico?
“…Juárez’s main product now is the corpse. Last year, drug-related violence there claimed more than 1,600 lives, and the toll for the first nine months of this year soared beyond 1,800, and mounts daily. That makes Juárez, population 1.5 million, the most violent city in the world. Two lines of graffiti summed up a place where not only law and order but civilization itself has broken down: Mi ciudad pide clemencia en su dementia (“My city asks for mercy in its madness”), and Mi ciudad es un negro lamento un aullido infinito (“My city is a black lament, an eternal howl”)….”
I have a very dear friend who is from Mexico. She and her husband are now American citizens and huge Republicans. She is devistated about what is going on in Mexico, telling me her friends are leaving the country, moving here or Europe as fast as they can. I am also hearing this from other sources I know who are from Mexico or have friends there.

Funny how a sequel to Independence Day was not needed when we had the Great Man for a President.
Now that we have been blessed with The One (Nobel) it is possible we need a little return to fightin’ them durn’ aliens. BTW I’m using this photo as a little “Up Yours” slam at the current resident. Even my father, who does NOT like SF liked this movie!
