    "Five Came Home" on Netflix, it's a documentary about the Hollywood directors who were in charge of making short films during WW2, really interesting.

    Last night I watched "Fastball" decent documentary. Only complaint was they didn't talk about Randy Johnson.

    Political / cultural comments are okay if you make them but if they show up under someone else's name, you suggest "no politics. . .delete the thread" or words to that effect ?

    Interesting.

    Reno I got mad....... someone complained about a political comment in MBB Volker Center thread I started and it was locked and deleted quickly after the complaint.

    Wanted to see if I complained would Mods lock and delete a thread? Guess my whining doesn't carry the clout of others.

    Melting point of some keeps moving the needle lower and lower evidenced by response time in deleting a thread when asked by a member.

    Ceo:

    I think the "no politics" rule in the MBB is a sound policy.

    Generally speaking, The Foo has had a bit of it in various threads over the nearly 10 years the GUB has been in business. You've seen my thread where I'll opine from time to time on political / cultural matters. Much of the really strident stuff that folks right of center -- which you might consider yourself--would take issue with was posted before the OCC / No politics ban when into effect.

    Of late, I have tried to steer clear of the political stuff even in my own thread ( Reno's Place ) due to a request from one of the Admins a number of months ago.

    The Volkar Center thread is in the Gonzaga University Talk forum (last time i looked).

    Regards,

    Sometimes the leader has to be removed....... because searching for a key to the strawberry bin....... is a sign of a serious mental/emotional problem.

    What to do when the person in charge is delusional and paranoid is always a difficult situation.

    I hope the future has episodes of Drunk History and that I live long enough to see someone tell about the present situation on an episode.

    I am not aware of any episodes for the Caine Mutiny?...... but it is a recurring nightmarish theme.....especially when the second in command is as crazy as the incumbent....

    I suspected that Nixon's days were numbered when they got rid of Agnew and installed a decent and rational VP, Gerald Ford...

    It's been a busy year for me. Sold our house bought a new one and things are finely slowing down a bit. So as of right now I am catching up on a lot of shows The Walking Dead, Blacklist, House of Cards.

    Finished season 7 of The Walking Dead last night. All in all it was not the best season but it was pretty good. If I could pick a character to just randomly get bit by a walker it would be King Ezekiel. That dude annoys me.

    I just started the "Roanoke" season of American Horror Story. I'm enjoying the way they present it as a TV show retelling and use actors that vaguely look like the "real life" people telling the story. It's just something really different.

    I just binged the entire first season of TBS's, "The Guest Book," over three nights. It's a fun diversion.

    Watched "The Vietnam War" on PBS (my daughter joined in ). Have followed the AT&T version of "Mr. Mercedes" that the Audience Network has aired. Enjoyed the season premiere of "Finding Your Roots," which featured Larry David and Bernie Sanders; turned out they are distant cousins !

    Busy time of year so my TV watching tends to be pretty limited.
