    The more I think about Bernie's promises, the more I'm amazed that this guy even has an audience. Among my faves:

    And is the change from "Disciplinary Council" to "Membership Council" new with this edition of the handbook, or did I miss an earlier change? There are a number of other subtle but interesting...

    Reading Bernie's website regarding his various positions is more than a little troubling. I'd rather shave with a cheese grater than vote for Trump, but if I had to decide between which of the two...

    I may eventually, as I'm sure it's very well done. But one problem I'd have going in is that I've seen up close a person's descent in schizophrenia and watching a variation of that on film would be...

    Joker was the only nominee I didn't see, for the reason you and several others have mentioned. As for all the other nominees, I thought the year was remarkable for having so many movies being pretty...

    Supposedly on Amazon Prime, VuDu, Google Play and a few others. The cost will probably be around $5 but it's worth it. Of all the Best Picture nominees, it's the one I'm most interested in seeing a...

    I'm looking forward to watching it again after it starts streaming Wednesday. JoJo and his best friend ("It's definitely not a good time to be a Nazi") were great. I enjoyed the movie much more...

    I'm wondering if Trump has ever mocked Putin or Un (both of whom are shorter than Bloomberg).

    Trump's weird obsession with the looks or height of others (esp. his opponents like Rubio, Fiorina, Bloomberg, etc.) is especially odd given his own physical attributes, including his tan, his hair...

    I don't want to overstate Obama's case, but a few years in the Senate sound better than a stint the South Bend city hall. I'm more bothered by the experience thing than the age thing. In fact, I'd...

    I'd gladly support any combination of Bloomberg, Buttigieg, and Klobuchar (BBK!). But having no women on the Dem ticket is extremely unlikely, and Bloomberg isn't spending billions to become Veep,...

    I think he rented out, but didn't sell, his soul on this one,. He's been a pretty good critic of Trump in the past and I expect him to be, at least at times, in the future. I haven't lost faith in...

    I'd be totally behind a Bloomberg/Klobuchar Dem ticket. I'd support them if they ran as a third party against Sanders and Trump. With Bloomberg's cash, they'd have an outside shot.
