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.

Here is another story.  We need to get serious about this.  China certainly has.

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

I posted earlier about this story here.  It turns out the person that was killed was a local business owner whose business was next to where the crowd had gathered.  From the story it appears that the police have a suspect in the initial shooting, but don’t know how or who shot the business owner.

I am sure this will make things calmer
