    Since I no longer watch the artifacts of modern culture...I no longer care.

    They're destroying old movies, now. Well, I'm buying DVDs - not one red cent for Netfux. NOT ONE.

    And nothing for the preachy Social-Engineering movies, nothing for the profane, vulgar angry, crude rhyming that's called music. What little I want, I can still buy, out of bookstores and second-hand stores. I'll probably die before the treasure-trove is exhausted; and probably the lights will go out before I'd otherwise die.

    They're destroying old movies, now.

    I just watched "The Angel & the Bad man" (John Wayne) on U-Tube the other day & it was colorized. That's one of my favorite movies so I wondered if the color version would "add" something to the movie. Now I'm sure that it's just me but I believe that the colorized version was drastically inferior to the black & white version. Maybe if I was younger or hadn't seen the B&W version I wouldn't think that, I don't know.

    Watched part of "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence" the other night, one of my favorites. It was made in the 60's and they could have shot it in color but man, I'm glad they didn't.

    The White House

    I've not heard what new name they've suggested yet, but knowing Liberals penchant for ultra-long definitions I'm sure the new name will be too long to fit on any stationary. Why use three words when you can use twelve?

    Golden Girls is a common staple in nursing homes. They're too whacked out from their dementia and meds to notice anything offensive.
