Re: “Sunday open line

I don't go to the movie theater much because the nearest one is an hour away and a lot of deer and dogs travel that highway at night.

I saw what appeared to be a promising movie on Netflix this weekend starring Richard Gere, Laura Linney, and Chloe Sevigny called The Dinner.

I should have read the reviews first. Worst ending EVER!!! All of the questions posed throughout the movie were left dangling in space somewhere. Absolutely no closure. That was two hours I can't get back.

Re: “Rapping Saturday at Little Rock City Hall as protest of music show crackdown

The stories about robbers and intruders at Max and The Observer's homes were very unsettling. As was the response time at Durango's home.

As for the rap situation....
I think it would be pretty cool if some of the participants in Rap Over Violence performed one or two songs from Hamilton....the best Broadway show ever, in my humble opinion. Those 46 songs and that two hour play taught me more about Alexander Hamilton, Aaron Burr, Thomas Jefferson, etc. than my entire education combined. And guess what? A few of those songs were rapped!

Or how about the song Glory, performed by John Legend and Common (from the movie Selma)? The first time I heard that, I cried. And guess what? Common raps the storyline.

Rap, like every other thing, has good and bad.

Do rap concerts attract a stereotypical undesirable element? Well, so do country music venues and rock, punk, and heavy metal concerts. This year at the Burning Man festival, a guy jumped in the fire and burned himself up.

Who gets to say what is censored?

Re: “Thursday: Open line and the daily roundup

Does anyone know why apostrophes, quotation marks, etc. are disappearing from comments? I tried to update/edit a post seven times. The correct punctuation appeared in the draft but when the comment posted, they disappeared.

Im such a haphazard typist, I dont need assistance making it even worse.

Re: “Sen. Greg Standridge dies at 50

50 is far too young. Condolences to his family.
As GFTRA said, we didnt always see eye to eye on political matters, but Greg was a decent, hard working man and I respected his work ethic during his difficult battle.
RIP Senator.

Re: “Another Obama reversal from Donald Trump: On elephant trophy hunting

Some day when these animals are extinct, these hunters grandchildren can point to the trophy heads on the wall and proudly proclaim My grandfather did that!.
What a legacy to leave behind.
