A Movie Line That Should Exist, but Doesn't

From 'Snakes on a Plane'. The snakes are released. An Indian guy lifts a carrier on his lap and says, "Say hello to my little friend." He lifts the door, and out pops a hungry mongoose.

"As we know, a mongoose's chief business in life is to kill and eat snakes."

My Big Problem With Conspiracy Theories is This

Any conspiracy that is strong enough to remove a sitting president, is strong enough not to have to hide itself. It IS the power structure, and all must obey. And any "HEROIC LONE INVESTIGATOR DIGGING OUT THE ACTUAL TRUTH" : Mark Lane, Jim Garrison, et. al would end up as part of the accident statistics, or in Garrison's case, found guilty of a felony and sent to a prison full of men he sent there.

Sorry CT'ers, a lone nut killed Jack Kennedy (hereafter Jakkabang). Just like a lone nut shot Reagan (Pithecanthropus Bonzoensis), a lone nut missed Ford, a lone nut killed McKinley and Garfield, a lone nut shot Teddy Roosevelt, a lone nut shot at FDR and hit Tony Cermak.

But go on, Ct'ers, keep believing in conspiracies, like you believe Space Aliens built the Pyramids (Them brownputterers couldn't have built something like that), the moon landing was faked, George W. Bush controlled the Saudi hijackers on 9/11, invisible Lizards caused the depression, Saucer Nazis caused Watergate and other stupid things.

I Was Given a Letter from my Great Grandfather William, who Served in the Union Army in the

Civil War.

Here is an excerpt.

"Why am I here? It is God's will. Men should not own men. That is abomination.. Please send me the pipe you promised, and the good Pennsylvania leaf."

"We Don't Need To Answer these Charges

The people know they're false." This means the charges will stick. And a candidate who won't defend himself won't defend the voters' interests.

The People are looking for a thoughtful word above the battle." I actually once heard a candidate say that. He lost, badly. This means, I don't care if I win or lose. I just want to make a noise.

Things You Would Swear You Saw or Heard, but Didn't

For years I would have sworn I once heard June Tabor sing the ballad 'Kinmont Willie.' I went looking for it and discovered she never recorded it. I've gone through her complete discography, and it's not there. Still in my mind's ear I can hear her distinctive voice singing, "Hae ye nae heard of the fause Salkelde? Hae ye nae heard of the Keen Laird Scroop? For he has ta'en the Kinmont Willie, to Haribee for to hang him up."

Also, I was certain I saw on TV back in the early '80s when heroin was fashionable, an anti-drug ad featuring William S. Burroughs. He is sitting on a table. The camera scans over the old needle tracks on his skin. Then he says, "You keep on shooting heroin, you could end up looking like me, if you're lucky. If you're not, (Camera does jump cut to body lying on gurney. Sheet is pulled away to reveal man dead of overdose) you could end up looking like him."

Camera focuses on Burroughs. He says, "It doesn't matter what you call it, heroin, eukodol, dragon, pantopon, morphine, it's junk. And it doesn't matter how you take it. You can shoot it, eat it, smoke it, snort it, drink it, gum it or shove it up your ass, the result is the same, addiction."

I've done an exhaustive search, and that ad never existed.

Does anybody else have memory bumps like that?

For Any Yalies Out there, Is this True

Yalies sometimes refer to Harvard as 'Codfish College' or 'That Diploma Mill in Cambridge, Mass.'
Is this true?

If the Press Gang is revived

let there be NO EXEMPTIONS for anything save mental or physical incapacity. This incapacity MUST be severe enough for disability, no boils on the butt or shitting your pants. Also, there MUST be NO deferments for ANYTHING, not college, not religious or philosophical beliefs, not sole surviving son, NOTHING. Women MUST be included. Anything else is discrimination.

Also, if 18 is the age of service, then 18 year olds MUST be given all the privileges and rights of adulthood. There are cruise ships that will not allow a person under 21 to be a passenger, (Odd the Navy has no trouble allowing 18 year olds on their ships.) 18 should be the age of majority for ALL matters.

And if we are to draft bodies, we should draft money. Raise taxes on the rich to cover the cost, tax dividends and capital gains at the same rate as earned income.

Or maybe the US should just mind its own business, and cut the war establishment to a reasonable level.

From the Crow's Nest Feb 3, 1980

And the Republicans have Ronald Reagan, who acted like a governor of California for eight years and now wants to act like a president.

From April 1971, MAD Magazine. "The Rats are destroying Disneyland. We've got to make Governor Reagan act! Hollywood couldn't, how can we?"
