I like how Steen uses the curtain in the back to frame the teacher and student. They are the focus. I want to think that this artist had some unhappy memories of school. The teacher looks patient to me, not stern, not yet, but the kid is getting frustrated and tired. He looks like me every time I had math homework.

72 I always enjoy paintings by Steen. I see the development of Rembrandt's style in Steen's approach: individual faces and figures, the use of light to set a mood and emphasize certain colors, and his use of brilliant colors where appropriate. Steen adds to that with a sense of humor in many of his works. It is art to be pleasant and enjoyed by the viewer.

This painting has all those elements. And the slightly chaotic assembly of student clutter adds the humor part.

Thanks, CBD. This is a fun one.

131 I think I know what the Strzok insurance policy was. It was General Flynn.

Strzok texted Page about the insurance policy on August 15, 2016 and while we all know it had to do with stopping Trump if he somehow won we didn't have a specific answer.

Last night Sidney Powell gave an interview where she said some of the Brady material finally released to her indicated that on August 17th, 2016 FBI agent Joe Pientka was sent as part of a team to give Trump and his team an intelligence briefing. It was highly unusual for an FBI agent to be present in a briefing like this and the real reason Pientka was sent was so that he could observe Flynn and get a baseline of his demeanor and actions so Pientka would know what to look for if he interviewed Flynn a second time.

On January 24, 2017 it was Strzok and Pientka that were sent into the White House to interview Flynn. Both Strzok and Pientka said they thought Flynn was telling the truth and then Strzok and Page edited the 302 to make it appear he was not telling the truth and Pientka has remained a virtual ghost to this day.

Accusing Flynn of lying and getting him removed and starting an obstruction of justice case against Trump was the insurance policy.

I'd forgotten about him. He and I are close to the same age -- though when I watched that series and others, I always identified with the grownups.

Richie always seemed kind of an afterthought anyway, as though the producers and writers figured, "Okay, Rob and Laura should have a kid" -- but they didn't know what to do with him. It really was a show about adults, thank goodness.

150 My father was a strong believer that true wisdom came by way of a 2" wide leather belt. Verbal threats, negative reinforcement and manual labor were also tools he deployed.

To keep a unified parental front, my mother woukd often thrash me with a wooden spoon with such intensity that, in retrospect, I believe she would have made a wonderful speed metal drummer.

Her technique was lacking with a flyswatter which I often deftly avoided with a quick hip thrust here and there and she did not get enough whip effect to make the Hot Wheels track a suitable deterrent.

Looking back, it was excellent training. Now when someone is verbally deriding me or physically threatening me, my mind goes very calm and I often smile while my brain works out ways in which I might destroy them.

194 Back in the 80s (the heyday of human existence), I had a collection of books called "Truly Tasteless Jokes". Would always get them from one of the mall bookstores -- Waldenbooks or B. Dalton. For those who aren't familiar, these jokes were REALLY non-PC. NOTHING was out of bounds. The kind of stuff that would give the vapors to SJWs. . . .

In elementary school, contemporary with the Van Dyke show, elephant jokes were all the rage for a brief time. I even had a paperback compendium of them.

"Why do elephants wear green caps?"
"So they can tiptoe across pool tables without being seen."

"Why is it dangerous to go into the jungle between 2 and 4 in the afternoon?"
"Because that's when elephants are jumping out of trees."

"Why are pygmies so short?"
"They went into the jungle between 2 and 4 in the afternoon."

The elephants come out to do their act and the son asks the mom "Mom, what's that long thing hanging down on the elephant?" And she says "That's his trunk." The son says "No, I mean the long thing hanging down at the back of the elephant." The mom says "That's his tail." The son says "No, what's that long thing hanging down between his legs?" The mom replies "Oh... that's nothing. I'm going to go get us some popcorn!" So when she leaves, the boy turns to his dad and asks "Dad, what's that long thing hanging down on the Elephant? Not his trunk, not his tail, but that other long thing between his legs?" The dad says "Well, that's the elephant's penis, son." The boy says "So home come when I asked mom what it was, she said it was nothing?" The dad takes a deep breath, puts his arm around his boy and says "Son, I have spoiled that woman."

303 It's amazing how so much of our comedy for the last 60 years traces back to Your Show of Shows, by Sid Caesar in the 1950's.

Young writers for Sid Caesar who were just getting their start in the business: Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, Neil Simon, Woody Allen, and several others who, while not household names today, went on to write and direct many of the big comedy hits we remember.

The Dick van Dyke show was based on Carl Reiner's memories of working for Sid Caesar; the movie "My Favorite Year" was based on Mel Brooks version of the same thing. (Brooks didn't write it, but he was Executive Producer)

Laura: Rob, it's for you. It's Jellybean.

314 Worth trying a third time... my letter to Sen Braun:

Sen Braun,

Wow, did you ever dig yourself into yet another hole. So you support the terrorist organization known as black lives matter? You know the ones that are an off shoot of the blank panther party? You know the ones that declared war on the cops, those guys? Don't believe me, here's an exact quote from one of their chapter leaders (Hank Newsome) and I quote:

"Our aim is to develop a highly-trained MILITARY arm to challenge police brutality head on in the wake of Floyd's death. It is our obligation, it's our duty to provide people a way forward. We want the immediate end of government sanctioned murder by the police. We prepare to stop these murders by an means necessary. We are preparing and training our people to defend our communities.

And if this country doesn't give us what we want, then we will BURN down this system and replace it. All right? And I could be speaking figuratively, I could be speaking literally, its all a matter of interpretation. I just want black liberation and black sovereignty, by ANY MEANS NECESSARY."

So the belief of the organization and its leadership is to have MILITARY trained members patrolling predominantly black communities to CHALLENGE law enforcement and stop police brutality reminiscent of their cousin, the black panther party.

And let me add that everyone is entitled to their opinion but for you, my Senator, to spout off that it looked like the Atlanta cop was at fault and trigger happy is just unconscionable. How about taking the "well, the authorities are looking into it, investigations are happening so let the process work itself out" instead of running in front of the camera with that look at me look at me mindset.

You need to fire whoever your advisors are and start afresh. This is the second time in three weeks that I've written to you (the last one was on your non-stance of allowing the democrat party to try and lead us to changing the names of military bases based on feelings b/c the heroes that these bases were named for did or didn't fight on behalf of the good guys to which I'm still awaiting a response on). Damn man, read some stinking history, ask some questions, take the 24hr rule in consideration, something other than running straight to the camera.

And it is because of you and the rest of our so-called Republican leaders who stick your noses in the air and claim "that's not who we are," that the tearing down of our history and all things sacred is being washed away. Our communities, our police, our history, our Founding Fathers and their reputations, our culture, all of it is being stripped away and erased. So I guess its up to the ordinary citizen to keep pushing back, to keep fighting back, to not back down because the folks I voted to do so on my behalf, my family's behalf, my friends behalf, and our beloved way of life's behalf is doing nothing more than pandering to anyone else but those that voted for them. Ok, I got it.

Hey, that's good to know indeed. As I mentioned last time, I looked forward to voting for you and did so eagerly thinking "he can't be like the rest, this guy fights like the President does, this guy will never back down, this guy is one of us." Sigh, look like I was wrong.

Let me ask you a question Mike, what's the difference between voting for you or a Gimmedat? I'll tell you. I know what I get when voting for a democrat, they will screw America each and every change they get but at least I always know where they stand. You've become that elite that you so excitedly bashed during your campaign, only it too a little over two years. That's nearly a record for those keeping score at home.

And let me say this, I could care less what Schumer or any of his ilk try to do or say. Enough trying to work with them. Don't budge an inch, don't bend an ear, don't entertain anything they spout of their lying mouths. Everything that they say is an outright lie and an exaggeration, what have they don't to help any of the American people in the last forty years? Short answer is nothing but line their pockets. And so called Republicans never call them out on it, you folks just let a flippant remark or outright lie just continues across the spectrum to only grow. There must be push back EACH and EVERY TIME, not some times, not once in a while but EVERY SINGLE time.

Their end goal is to ruin what's left of America and its high time this stop now. Every time any of them open their mouths, the only answer is no, go to your room. You are children that need to be treated like children, go away and allow the adults to continue with the conversation.

Thank goodness with have a President that fights, fights, fights, along with a few others (Cruz, Cotton, Gohmert, Jordan, etc.) that never back down, never give in, never lose faith, and never give up. It's a shame neither you nor our other esteemed former Marine of a Senator Mr. Young exhibit any of those attributes.

You elite just don't get it or maybe you do. As Tucker says, there is no two party system in DC, its all one big party looking out for itself with very few exceptions who are looking out for us the ordinary deplorable citizen where all lives matter from all walks of life. Well, at least you can take pleasure in them eating you last.

Posted by: Wyatt Earp at June 30, 2020 10:39 AM (VWp7G)

==========

Oppum is the outside voice that demonstrates to the unit how desensitized to the violence around them they've become. His ending of the game of "find Ryan" in a pile of dog tags while a line of paratroopers walks by is key to that.

The whole point of the film is about finding the point of the fight again. The thematic thrust of the opening is that Tom Hanks' character is so desensitized to the death around him (like the poor bastard moment when the guy gets shot in the head right next to him) that he can't really see anything about the war other than his own survival.

Ryan is the ultimate breaking point of that. They find him, offering him the ticket home they all want, and he refuses it because he has a mission and his new brothers to help.

Read some tales from people on the set, they said the entire cast broke down laughing several times because of the improv jokes Billy Crystal kept cracking as Miracle Max. Almost all of his part was improv, and the people on the scene said it was a real shame that all of his best stuff had to be cut because it was so damned raunchy!

And shining morning face, creeping like snail
Unwillingly to school.

And then the lover,
Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his mistress' eyebrow.

Then a soldier,
Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard,
Jealous in honor, sudden and quick in quarrel,
Seeking the bubble reputation
Even in the cannon's mouth.

And then the justice,
In fair round belly with good capon lined,
With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
Full of wise saws and modern instances;
And so he plays his part.

The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slippered pantaloon,
With spectacles on nose and pouch on side;
His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide
For his shrunk shank, and his big manly voice,
Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound.

Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.

348 I always loved fantasy, loved Tolkien. To me Princess Bride is the most fun fairy tale ever written, full of quotable lines in every scene. And every character is great!

Read some tales from people on the set, they said the entire cast broke down laughing several times because of the improv jokes Billy Crystal kept cracking as Miracle Max. Almost all of his part was improv, and the people on the scene said it was a real shame that all of his best stuff had to be cut because it was so damned raunchy! It makes me really want to hear what he said!

Quite a nice racket they've got going there. Do they have to publish the executives' salaries, because that would be interesting to see. Of course, they may do what AARP does and hide much of the executives' compensation in expensive perks and benefits, so that the salaries don't appear to the public to be as obscene as they really are.
