Re: Get it right the first time . . .

Personally, I think the change has to start from inside . . . And you would be right. Until people decide to take repsonsibility for what they do and understand that actions have consequences nothing will change. People have to get past the thought that everyhting that is wrong is not somebody else...

Take out that paragraph and there seems little with which to argue.

Moira:

Such fine timing. Just last week I got Jack Benny's show on DVD from Netflix. Man, that was funny. One that was really good was Jack casting a show that would do his life story. I'm waiting on the other discs to follow.

Since classical music was brought up in this thread I thought I'd mention, just in case, that Mistislav Rostropovich died on Friday in Russia. One of the most renowned cellists he was also famous in my area as he lead the National Symphony Orchestra (Wash DC) for 15 years or so. Critics around here ...

You're welcome Danny. My wife had the idea to have him draw this for me for Christmas. "Bedtime for Sniffles" is one of my favorite cartoons. It's not a laugh-out-loud cartoon as much as it is an adorable one. It is required viewing in our house every Christmas. The drawing hangs, neatly framed, in ...

Danny: Here is the picture of Sniffles I talked about. (Thanks to Mo for helping me.) It was done by a friend as a Christmas present at my wife's request. He did it from a freeze frame of "Bedtime for Sniffles." It's the one where he waits for Santa. http://i164.photobucket.com/albums/u20/movieman19...

You summed it up quite well. It's much deeper than a "changing of the west" picture. I never thought of Valance, the man, as the last of a dying breed, he was just a man who made that town miserable. I'm not sure Doniphan is doing anything more (at that moment) than saving his friend. I'm sure he wa...

I'm not sure how much chance it has on a practical matter. If each station survived solely on the number of people who subscribed to it instead of the number of households on the system it might bring a different outcome. Would enough people choose the C-Span or the Biography channel, for example (f...

Danny: For a long time I did them myself at the piano. Last year I wrote one for the opening of our new building and got the whole band to play. I have a recording and, apart from my vocal, it's really nice. It's an unusual feeling to hear all the instruments and a harmony vocal on my song. People h...

Miss G: From someone who can't draw a straight line, please consider posting them. I write songs and do them mainly for my church band. I know when I think my songs may be average at best someone comes along and mentions how much they liked it or how it spoke to them. But with songs they're gone as ...

Favorite and best are two different things. "Red River" may be the best, which reminds me of a Ford film. "Angel and The Badman" and maybe "The Shootist" rank among my favorites.
