The Obama/Anti-Christ Watch: Start making your popcorn now, folks

Posted By on Sun, Jan 18, 2009 at 10:15 AM

KWOG, the Springdale TV station (owned by the Word of God Fellowship, Inc) which almost never runs movies, is running movies four nights in a row next week, beginning Monday night, with the wretched movie, Left Behind, about the rise of the anti-Christ.

In fact, each movie this week has to do with battling either the Ant-Christ or Satan himself.

I’m sure it’s just some sort of cosmic coincidence that they are running these films during Obama’s Inaugural week.

Aren’t you?

Quote of the Day

In so many of my stories and poems the central character is a literary man. Well, this means to say that I think that literature has not only enriched the world by giving it books but also by evolving a new type of man, the man of letters. - Jorge Luis Borges

On the Air - Employee Free Choice Act

This week my guest will be Stephen Smith, president of AFSCME (American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees), Local 965, who will appear to discuss the controversial Employee Free Choice Act, which will change the way that union elections are held in plants in the United States. Many conservative columnists have written against the act, and many pro-business groups have also spoken out against it.

AFSCME first came into local prominence in the 1990s, when the UA announced plans to slash its workforce, affecting members of the union. The union was able to convince the university not to through with its plans.

Showings:

Monday- 7pm
Tuesday- noon
Saturday - 6pm

As always, C.A.T.  Can be found on  Channel 18 of the Cox Channel line-up in Fayetteville.

Those outside the Fayetteville viewing area can see the program online at:

You can’t miss this one.

Patrick McGoohan dies - this just isn’t right

Even before The Prisoner, I enjoyed the work of Patrick McGoohan, and enjoyed whatever he did afterwards, as well. It will make watching AMC’s new version of The Prisoner a little bittersweet, knowing that he is not around.

Prisoner star McGoohan dies at 80

Emmy-winning actor Patrick McGoohan, best known for starring in cult 1960s TV show The Prisoner, has died at the age of 80.

He died in Los Angeles after a short illness, his film producer son-in-law Cleve Landsberg told Associated Press.

McGoohan played the character Six in the surreal 1960s show, filmed in the north Wales village of Portmeirion.

He won two Emmy awards for his work on TV detective series Columbo, playing different characters.

The first came for an episode of the series in 1974, with another 16 years later.
