3 Good Morning Morons. Today is Friday, February 22, 2013. On this day in 1879 Woolworth opened his first five and ten cents store. I used to love that place when I was a kid. The first store opened in Utica, NY. The last store closed in 1988.

16 Lt. Gov. of VA, Bill Bolling, said on WMAL that he's thinking about running as an independent, since Ken Cuccinnelli looks like he has the nom, and he's, you know, ideologically driven.
1) thinking about = going to
2) ideologically driven = has an actual belief system
3) Bolling is assuring that Terry McAulliffe will win the governorship
4) Bolling is politically dead from here on.

31 Morning, 'rons and 'ronettes. Sorry about yesterday; I promise I'll talk about David Lean and Lawrence of Arabia on Monday. In the meantime, here's a story about an Errol Flynn movie that you've never seen:

By 1950, Flynn's career was on the downslide. Although not yet the bloated, shambling drunk of his final years, his hard lifestyle had worn on him and he was beginning to look seedy and dissipated, both in his movies and in person. After the disgrace of Hello, God, a film which stank so badly it was never even released in the States, Flynn starred in four more movies that did nothing to enhance his box office appeal and Warner Brothers - trying to get him to break his contract so they could dump him - accused him of, in his words, "breach of contract, holding up the company and general bad behavior. . ."

Angry, humiliated and discouraged, Flynn started his own company, Errol Flynn Pictures, and headed for Europe, where in 1954 he produced Crossed Swords, a very obvious throwback to his swashbuckling days, but even with co-star Gina Lollobrigida, the picture was not a success. Beaten but unbowed, Flynn decided to damn the torpedoes and produce a real Hollywood-style epic. The subject? William Tell.

Ever the gambler, Flynn proved his commitment to the project by putting up half of the $900,000 budget himself. A further $200,000 came from an Italian backer named Count Fossataro, and the Italian government was persuaded by Flynn (who had lost none of his ingratiating charm) into ponying up another $150,000. Flynn now had money, a cast (including his old friend Bruce Cabot as the villianous Austrian Gessler) and a crew. Shooting began.

Everything ran smoothly. Too smoothly, as it turned out. After a few weeks, with about half an hour of the movie under his belt, Flynn's world blew apart. First, Flynn's accountants told him that the Tell budget was gone. It had all been spent. Then Fossataro's checks began bouncing. Next, Flynn's business manager, Al Blum, spent all of the actor's available cash on one last wild spree before dying - "Tell Errol I'm sorry" were his last words. The IRS dropped by the set to inform Flynn that he owed Uncle Sam $800,000 in back taxes. And finally, friend Cabot, impatient to be paid, sued Flynn for his salary and had both the actor's car and his wife's clothes confiscated for collateral. These events, one on the other, were like a gut punch to Flynn. Already suffering from jaundice, he collapsed, and while in hospital, William Tell's cameras, film stock and equipment were seized.

Once back on his feet, Flynn tried to resurrect his movie. He tried approaching Warners for funding, but they refused, as did other friends and investors. Needing money not just for the movie, but for his own living expenses, Flynn appeared on a quiz show, The Big Surprise, and, to his surprise, won $30,000 (the category was nautical questions; Flynn was always an expert yachtsman). But the winnings were not nearly enough for Flynn's own lifestyle - and they certainly were not enough for a movie budget.

Sadly, Flynn realized that William Tell would never be made. In the words of film curator Jeannine Basinger, "According to his friends, the failure of this project did something to Flynn that he never fully got over. It was worse than the rape trial* in that it connected directly to his sense of himself as an artist. It also represented betrayal by friends and backers he had trusted; he felt like a fool."

After the Tell footage had been seized, it vanished; Flynn was never able to recover it and it is likely to have long since been destroyed. But you never know. . .perhaps in some closet or back room in an obscure little corner of Italy or Switzerland, hidden under crumbling papers and layers of dust, there is a film canister with thirty minutes of raw footage of Errol Flynn that no one has ever seen - the child of his heart, the lost William Tell.

*In 1942, Flynn was tried for the rape of a young girl named Peggy Satterlee. Due mainly to the muckraking efforts of his attorney Jerry Geisler (one of Hollywood's most ruthless trial lawyers), he was found not guilty. Arguably, the case marked the beginning of the end of Flynn's image as a carefree swashbuckler with a golden heart. It's a story that deserves fuller treatment than this note, and I'll tell it one of these days.

33 posturing Rand's "wrong" question...

As if political assassinations of American citizens ordered from the highest political positions of authority, accomplished by whatever means, aren't already on record. Fog erasing the '60's?

Without jury trial, Americans ordered and executed by drone inside the USA.

Consider the "unprecedented" requirement to make news beyond a Drudge headline, or for longer than a 15 minute attention span from Joe Q. Public. It's politics, using the public distaste of drones overhead to drive home the point that Washington's gone wildly insane with abusive powers.

49 I saw an article from the Chi Trib yesterday. A retired general thinks it a good idea to have the National Guard patrol Chicago streets and help direct traffic (I guess they have no traffic lights in Chi) to cut down on crime.
A man who does "community work" (oh shit) said,

"This is going to require more than just the Chicago Police Department,"
he said. "We are in a state right now where we need not only to get the
community activated and mobilized and dealing with the issues in their
community, but somewhere along the way, we're going to have to tap into
some federal funding."

Bingo...Federal Funding... that cures everything.

I hope that wasn't the impression my story gave you, Vic. Compared with some other Hollywood stars, Flynn was a pretty good guy. He just had no self-control when it came to women. And yes, he was riddled with STDs; in fact, that's why he didn't fight in WWII. He signed up for the draft right after becoming an American citizen in 1941, but they rejected him. Warners wouldn't release the reason why, so people who saw Flynn in his war films thoughthe was a coward.

It's too bad. It was always fun to go "downtown" (we called it that since we were little) We still go down for plays and such once or twice a year, but it's no tops on my list. Most of the killin' is in neighborhoods that I do not go to, but I don't know when that will change either. Maybe Chicago should allow guns, but teach the bangers how to shoot properly, so that innocents won't be shot. I have no problem with them killing each other.

It's even safer if you're the mayor and have 10 armed guards around you.

You know, that's a movie I've never seen, even though I have it on my "should get to it one of these days" list. Since we're due for another f'ng foot of snow this weekend, maybe I should call it up on Netflix. And not to nitpick, but I believe the O'Toole character is supposed to be John Barrymore, not Flynn. But I could be wrong.

Flynn was no Wallace Beery. That was a guy that deserved to be thrown off a bridge.

Yes, I never cared much for him (although Mickey Rooney said he was one of the best people he ever worked with), but when I read how he raped Gloria Swanson on their wedding night, that basically turned me off of Beery forever. It does, though, put a creepy extra frisson to his character of General-Director Preysing in Grand Hotel, trying to bed the luscious Joan Crawford.

Thank you Vic for today's history.

GOP Headquarters has called me several times and I have missed the call. I finally answered yesterday
and when woman started to ask me for sustaining membership $ for this year, I asked to be removed from call and I'm not giving any money to them.

I received a letter last week from Mitch (chinless and spineless) McConnell asking me to donate to his reelection campaign. I threw it in the recycle bin. If he sends another I will call and tell them to take my name of list.

I live in MA why would I help senator from KY? He's minority leader and a lousy one at that.

I can block phone calls from my home phone. I don't know what happens on their end but if I have repeated calls from Washington DC that do not leave messages, I call block them. My phone will ring one time and that's it.

I wish I could do that on my cell phone.

I have to go to work today.

Have a good day, everyone.

the sect that disavows Israel is not particularly big:


Most Orthodox religious groups have accepted and actively support the State of Israel, even if they have not adopted "Zionist" ideology. The World Agudath Israel party (founded in Poland) has at times participated in Israeli government coalitions. Most religious Zionists hold pro-Israel views from a right-wing viewpoint. The main exceptions are Hasidic groups such as Satmar Hasidim, which have about 100,000 adherents world wide, as well as numerous different, smaller Hasidic groups, unified in America in the Central Rabbinical Congress of the United States and Canada and in Israel in the Edah HaChareidis.[48] [49]

132 MP4, I read the headline comments in the morning for two reasons- Vic's headlines and your Hollywood stories. They're great.

I know that this is towards the end of your favored period, but some time in the future, would you share any "On the Waterfront" and/or early Marlon Brando stories that you may have? I've heard some really interesting facts about the real mobsters, priest, etc. that the movie was based on, but you always seem to have those stories that few people have heard.

In return, Ioffer this storythat a college professor of mine (also my thesis advisor)told me as a small gesture of thanks. Back in the late 1950s, she was out in California as a single woman for a short vacation(I forget if it was LA or San Francisco).A well-connected friend of hers asked if she would likehim to arrange a dateto go out some evening so that she wasn't just dining alone. She agreed.

When the arranged evening came, who comes to pick her up but Brando, who still looked like the young stud fromhis Stanley Kowalski days. He treated her to dinner at a Japanese restaurant, and even bought her a silk kimono. She said that nothing else happened that evening, and that he was a gentleman, but that she still had the kimono.

Anyway, have a great weekend!

Oh yeah. It was "homophobic" to suggest they should form life-long pair bonds instead of doing their thing.

I feel sorry for "transgender kids" under 21 or so; there's no way for them to know if that's truly they really wanted for their lives or if they've just been manipulated by adults with an agenda into thinking that's what they should. But if you've still got your beans and frank, you don't get to go in the girls' room. If the administrators are so adamant boys who think they're girls shouldn't use the boys' room, let them use the administrators' or teachers' bathroom. Problem solved.

154 I feel sorry for "transgender kids" under 21 or so; there's no way for them to know if that's truly they really wanted for their lives or if they've just been manipulated by adults with an agenda into thinking that's what they should. But if you've still got your beans and frank, you don't get to go in the girls' room. If the administrators are so adamant boys who think they're girls shouldn't use the boys' room, let them use the administrators' or teachers' bathroom. Problem solved.

I agree.

There was more of a natural development in kids in self-identity in the past. Kids could be kids, and would eventually fall into their preferences. (It wasn't perfect, and there was the fear and shame that could be attached, regardless). Now, the left is so adamant in mind control and directing every aspect of a child's growth, and shouting at the rooftops how okay it is to be "different," that it must be so confusing to them.

Yeah. As the malleable goal posts of "purity" shifted according to political compliant expedience, on the way to the forum, socialists coalesced while conservatives appear to have shrunk.

The "consequences" of elections don't phase the GOP Leadership, whose only attachment to constituents is tax revenue that sticks in the politicians' pockets.

“This is a preferential system. I’m putting Amour at No. 9 because I’m just pissed off at that film. Beasts of the Southern Wild is a movie that I just didn’t understand, so that’s my No. 8. Les Miserables goes in seventh place -- it’s not just the most disappointing film of the year but the most disappointing film in many years. Above that I’m putting Silver Linings Playbook, which is just a “blah” film. Django Unchained will go into my fifth slot -- it’s a fun movie, but it’s basically just Quentin Tarantino masturbating for almost three hours.

Eh, it's work-related. I sent out some reports last week to the schools with which my Bureau works, and I discovered yesterday that the data in the report I sent to one school was monumentally wrong. I think I must have had a bad sort of the tables at some point that messed all the numbers up, like a slot machine. As soon as I realized the mistake I got rid of the bad data and recalculated the correct values, then I reran the report and sent it out to the school yesterday afternoon with my sincere apologies.

Normally I wouldn't be worried about opening an email from one of our schools, but this particular administrator... well, let's just say she has the sense of humor of a dead frog and a permanent sourpuss expression that looks like she spent her formative years sucking on lemons. Depending on her mood when she opened my email, it's either going to be a very bland, "Thank you," or a blistering excoriation about my stupidity. After this past week, I'd really rather avoid the latter.

224 Just got back from searching him. The reason I asked was they were showing a bunch of twitter or facebook pics that students at KU posted re what they were doing on the snow day yesterday. One was a pic of his "People's History..." on a bed pillow.


If you ever wondered just how big of a dick Matt Damon is, all you need to do is watch Good Will Hunting, where his character gives a sterling review to Zinn's History.

Yeah, fuck Matt Damon.

235 Vic, you might enjoy a book I just read called '21st Century Dodos' about things that have passed into history. It has an entry on the UKWoolworths which caused me to mention it now.

Ouch. Had the same thing here but caught it right after I sent out the RFP. One of my formulas were showing a negative quantity. Can't point out anyone that would act like that administrator you have to deal with.


On another note - don't send an email before coffee. One of the secretaries asked me for some info two weeks ago and I gave it to my coworker. She emailed Wednesday to see if I had anything. I forward that email to another co-worker saying 'See what happens when you give a project to Jim.' I see him (coworker, not Jim) a couple of minutes after I sent it and he doesn't know what I am talking about. Turns out I sent the email to 'Jim.' Oops. Learned how to pull back an email real fast that day.

242 Some readers may recall Debe Terhar, head of Ohio's state education board, going through the wringer because she linked the old saw of Hitler favoring gun confiscation on her private f-bk page. The active ones are still after her head.

I was so pleasantly surprised that anyone in the statist education business would not be anti-gun, I tossed her off a little contribution. She's not up for election at the moment, but I found her candidate page and figured a few bucks would speak as loudly as a long letter. Got the usual computerized receipt (which is doubtless now on my official record), and figured that was it.

Yesterday I received a full-page letter of thanks, handwritten. I used to work in support of the marketing industry, and am pretty good at recognizing those fake fonts that look like real writing. This was not it. And even though I'd only sent money, no ideological explication with it, somehow she sensed the reason for my donation, and addressed that in the note. I wonder how many of those she wrote. Kind of hope she has her arm in a sling from writer's cramp.

Now she may have a dozen catholic schoolgirls held at slave-labor faking her personal responses (I mention the catholics because their penmanship is so often above average), but either way, this is old fashioned attention to the details of politics, and I was impressed with the medium and its content. If she survives this incident, I expect her to go much farther.

Now I want to talk to her about that damned Common Core Curriculum. Think I'll need to send more money?

From my reading, that demographic will be a force in New York, but not quite yet. In 10 years they will own the place, but it will probably be too late to fix the damage.

I don't know that the nation can remain stable for ten more years.

Comatus if you read this I want to tahnk you as well. We all have power if we pledge to donate 20 bucks to people who get it in the education biz but we MUST have genuine vetting for some "moron seal of approval", fact is we need to pick one corner and nail the bastards and education is probably the most necessary portion.
