The late great Elizabeth Montgomery

Bewitching indeed.

She also narrated The Panama Deception (1992):

Thanks .. Wisc Progressive.

I figured it couldn't just be Walker's sterling record and winning personality getting him elected.

Johnny Cash sings "Man In Black" for the first time

Johnny's musical answer to the question about why he always wore black.
I wear the black for the poor and beaten down...

each week we lose a hundred fine young men...

Of course Johnny might have been Dixie Chick'd if he was starting out today with those lyrics.

Parallax View & All the President's Men

Here are clips from the 2 movies Michael Cuesta based Messenger on..


Parallax View


Great line from the movie:
Fred Weil: Some stories are just too true to tell.

Jeremy Renner is excellent as Gary Webb - Parallax View meets All the President's Men

Jeremy Renner has the blockbuster franchises (Avengers, Bourne, Mission Impossible...) to fall back on so I give him a ton of credit for taking time, and probably some of his own money too, to bring some real history to the movies. Not only with Kill the Messenger but the Abscam movie too.

On the dvd commentary the director (Michael Cuesta) draws comparisons to All the President's Men and Parallax View. The cast is very good also .. Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rosemarie DeWitt, Robert Patrick ..

Abscam (post-Church Committee)

A few years after the Church Committee finished their business the Intelligence Industrial Complex ran a sting operation targeting members of Congress call Abscam. The intelligence community has not been investigated since..

It certainly would appear that Church Committee proponent and subcommittee chair Senator Richard Schweiker was brought back into line..
