Just got back from seeing this on IMAX. Definitely worth it if you can find one. They did a very good job of sticking to the graphic novel; the few additions were spiritually compatible. I'd have preferred V to be more flamboyant and baroque, but that's because I like baroque flamboyance. I suppose ...

Wait a minute. I know my current Evil Minions have four legs and fur, but I *am* working on some two-legged ones. My nieces are coming along nicely . . . :twisted:

And racism and xenophobia aren't rearing their ugly heads now ? Giving immigrants some sort of "guest worker" status would cut down on hunting for people and would allow the border patrol to concentrate on drugs and explosives and all that other lovely stuff we're supposed to be scared of. Not to me...

One of the things I like about Mencia is that by making jokes out of racism -- using all the perjorative words, making fun of stereotypes, etc. -- he makes the point that we're all Americans now. The political area has been so divisive lately; he makes the point that we may all be different, but we'...

So make immigration easier -- not easiest. Though Carlos Mencia (the comedian) has an interesting take on it. I gather his parents were illegal immigrants. His idea is that there should be a fence around America -- it makes it harder for the real doofuses to get in. I recommend Mencia -- he's totall...

Yes, lots of pasta in the North End! And it's excellent. Especially the calamari. And other seafoods. I want to be there now! :lol:

It would be nice if immigration were easier -- except it'd never fly, what with the fake terrorism threats and the pretend unemployment problem. At least my family's doing its best -- two of my siblings married foreign nationals in order to get them green cards. Both foreign-born spouses have become...

I loved it too. I tracked down a few of Pullman's other books, but they weren't as good. I don't remember them, you see. :roll:

Actually, they might be quite good. I forgot how bad my memory is. :wink:

People go on and on about "illegal immigrants are taking our jobs". This is what is known as a Big Lie. We need the illegal immigrants to provide cheap labor. There just aren't enough people to pick the fruit and build the houses. Last fall there was a lot of worry in California about food rotting i...

I continue to advocate going to St. Peter's Square. It'd be much funnier, since the Holy Land really doesn't have a central meeting space. And the Pope's presence would add extra spice. . . :twisted:

Don't forget to make him an illegal Mexican immigrant!

Let's be fair, here. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

It's a herd. Hitting them is not an option -- you might kill one or two, but your car would be totalled. It's just not practical.

Yeah. People don't understand that most of the places wolves exist are pretty bad for sheep. But the sheepherders will take losses. No getting around that. Of course, the sheep are grazing public land. So my sympathy is limited. Plus, if you've ever had to get a car through a herd of sheep, you pret...

Actually, not really. The state tends to be ecologically conscious. And there's a vast wilderness area up on the Montana border. No motorized vehicles allowed. Plus there's the simple fact that there aren't that many people there. There's more every year, true, but they tend to cluster in the flat a...

I grew up in Boise, Idaho, which is the butt of too many jokes to be described in so few words. :roll: Not that I don't laugh at them. But it was hilarious in the last election -- all of Idaho voted Red. Except Boise -- a tiny island of Blue. There's a certain amount of conflict there. . . "Mostly c...
