‘Not off to a good start’ by Charles P. Pierce

There is no evidence available that the younger Tsarnaev is connected to a  “cell,” nor is there anything in his background that indicates he was willing to  die for any cause. He tried to get away so frantically that he ran over his own  brother. The complaint is barely unsealed, and already the commentary  on this case has completely gone to the zoo.

What are they all going to do if this guy just turns out of be a pathetic,  murderous follower of an unhinged older brother?

What are they going to do if  there’s no “cell,” and if he doesn’t declare his allegiance to jihad in court?

What if he is, as he still appears to be, merely Dylan Klebold with a funny name  and a pulse?

We are supposed to be seeking justice here, not a public blood  sacrifice to the gods we’ve made of our fears. What do we do if the truth denies  us that?

The Babe Ruth Story is a 1948 baseball film biography of Babe Ruth, the famed New York Yankees slugger.

It stars William Bendix as the ballplayer and Claire Trevor as his wife. It was rush released while Ruth himself was still alive. It makes no mention whatsoever of Ruth’s first wife, Helen.

Reviews were, for the most part, negative. Citing the film’s moments of heavy handedness including a rather contrived reanactment of Babe Ruth’s famous World Series home run against the Chicago Cubs, some critics have even gone far to call it one of the worst sports biopics of all time.



note: As a little kid, I LOVED watching this on TV; over, and over, and over!

f’ the critics!

“Quote of the Day”


“Little in the way of expression is outlawed in the United States Constituion, but an act which incites forceful response (see photo) is unlikely to pass as express speech.”  –  Judge Frances McIntyre

Police plan to remove Occupy Boston protesters from their 2-month-old camp  this weekend after a judge lifted an order that had protected them from  eviction.

The ruling by Suffolk Superior Court Judge Frances McIntyre was met with  surprise by demonstrators, who immediately vowed to go back to court to fight  any attempt to kick them out.
