smart people listen.  Professor Reynolds is a deep thinker who anticipates many of the future’s trends and problems.  It is well worth reading anything he writes.

Another successful use of a gun in the defense of a home. (but in a little bit of a different way).

You have to have a heart of stone not to laugh at this story. Modern Russia is the very definition of a Kleptocracy.

We need more forgiveness in our lives.  We need to be more like the victim’s brother in this story. (BTW, good on the police for never giving up.)

Here is a collection of stories from July.  I’ve often wondered why some press outlet didn’t make an article like this a monthly feature.

Movie review:The Big Sleep (1946)

The film adaption of the Raymond Chandler detective novel starring Bogart and Bacall.  I happened to catch this on TCM late night’s “Noir Alley”.  This is probably my favorite feature on TCM and I love watching the old noir films.  This is one of the best.  Also, watching Bogart and Bacall act together makes you realize how crappy the actors and actresses of today’s Hollywood are.  With the possible exception of Tom Hanks or Denzel Washington, there isn’t an actor today that comes close to the talent Bogart had. His acting is so effortless.  He never seems to be acting.   This film, along with The Maltese Falcon is one of those films that I could watch again and again.  Five stars.  If you have never seen it, go watch it, right away.

Four looters in Philadelphia did a stupid thing.  Results, 1 dead, 1 wounded.  Play stupid games, get stupid prizes.
