The Heiress (1949) Exceptionally good movie for its realism. The TCM host did an extremely poor review. She who is young and pretty interviewed black women, and they all concluded the movie had to do with body image. Their review was strictly political. True, the star is a woman, but the theme applies equally to men and women. The theme is, “You came of age and lost your innocence.” Once I was young and easy-on-the-eyes. I was not wanted for my money, no, but for what I could do, the doors I could open, and the help I could give, not for me. TCM has fallen to the falsities of the new culture. I have not.

Dr. Anthony Fauci allegedly justified experimenting on contagious viruses as worth the risk of a laboratory accident, such as a global pandemic, in an American Society for Microbiology analysis in October 2012 [which defended the controversial practice of researching various viruses to increase their transmissibility, ostensibly to better defend against them], according to a report from The Australian.
I don't know. I just parrot.
What defines you? That question comes up now and then in popular culture. Well, a mirror does a pretty good job.
If you want to laugh, you conservative you, watch The Babylon Bee on Rumble and buy the t-shirt, "I identify as vaccinated." The Babylon guys use "donkey" a lot to bleep what word?
Justice Clarence Thomas: The Left Is The Enemy Of Free Thought
If you think I am paranoid about social media and the pelvic left, consider the fact I was banned from Facebook for three weeks. Why? I posted this: "The 2020 election was pitiful." The first algorithm was election. I know there is an algorithm for COVID, too. The first algorithm sent me to the second algorithm. It contained a list of negative words. How many, I don't know. It could contain hundreds of words. "Pitiful" is one of them. I verified the ban with a friend on Facebook. I asked her what was the date of the last post she could see, which was ten days prior. The ban lasted from a date in December 2020 until a date in January 2021, exactly three weeks. Facebook isn't so smart. The ban could have been eight or nine days, and I would have been less suspicious.
According to Austen Ruse, author of Under Siege: No Finer Time to be a Faithful Catholic, we are nostalgic about the past and admire the generations who fought the War of Independence, the Civil War, and World War II because they were living through epic times. Ruse says the World War II generation knew they were fighting a real enemy. Ruse says we are living in desperate times now, and we have the enemy right where we want him or her. He says future generations will admire us and be envious that they could not be with us right now.
I recommend three French Art House films: The Diary of a Country Priest (1951), The Dialogue of the Carmelites (1960), and Léon Morin, Priest (1961). They have English subtitles. Dialogue is set during the French Revolution and stars Alida Valli, and the other two are contemporary or almost contemporary. If you like movies set in San Francisco, I recommend The House on Telegraph Hill (1951), a murder mystery starring Valentina Cortese. Telegraph gave me the idea for a switcheroo in Pretty City Murder.
It is a thing to be corrected, typically an error in a printed book or online posting. Corrigendum originates from the Latin word corrigere, which means to “bring into order.” If there is one in my stories or blog, let me know.
If you are feeling disadvantaged by what you look like, sound like, or talk like, and envious of others and their privilege, you are feeling sorry for yourself. You don't really want what they have. You just want to take away what they have. Naw. Overcome the obstacle on your path, or, if you must, learn to live with the impediment.
Tech terms [off-topic vocabulary building]
Tech-savvy folks consider themselves part of the digerati — a term referring to the elite of digitalization.
Internet domain names, a hot commodity, fetch big bucks. Savvy investors have snapped up domain names with no intent of building a site with them — instead, they cybersquat, hoping for an investor to pay big bucks to own a stellar dot-com domain.
If you have ever installed a free piece of software only to have it remind you again and again through pop-ups or banners to install a paid version of the program, you’ve encountered nagware. The source is the verb "nag" — meaning to bother or implore.
