  1. That’s true David, but counseling immigrant women not to have more babies than they could afford hardly qualifies as racism. At least that’s my view. Ah...check the biography and writings of Margaret Sanger. She was as buggy as H. P. Lovecraft.about the rise of "inferior" immigrant races.
  2. One thing to keep on the desktop in the age of Trump and Gates: historically, American eugenics movements - on a continuum from the Rockefellers through Margaret Sanger to the Pioneer Fund - have principally been reactions to epochal rises in immigrant population. And even a seeming' left-libertarian like Fletcher Prouty could get suckered into preaching Malthusian economics and getting his name on the mastheads of right-leaning publications and organizations.
  3. Film by the late Leonard Schrader, who often worked on films with his brother Paul Schrader, author of Taxi Driver and director of Hardcore.
  4. I've made the Jaws joke here, saying we're in too much haste to keep the beaches open. Here's a writer that takes the metaphor, enviably, to the nth degree: https://www.theguardian.com/film/2020/may/25/ive-never-seen-jaws
  5. Again, I apologize for misleading you. I had thought that "midnight blue limo" would have spilled it.
  6. Kidding, kidding, kidding, kidding, kidding. Apologies. The gods of Comedy demanded it of me. You have a point, however -- I should have called it "From a Zapruder 8."
  7. I disagree. The lyrics to "From an Altgens 6" are reprinted in The Apocryphal Bob Dylan, 1962-1966: I got this midnight blue limo and all these motorcycle cops In the middle of Elm Street, y’know, the driver just stops He said he slowed down but the taillight was glowin’ bright red Well, if I fall down dyin’, y’know that someone put a price upon my head
  8. Is there any truth to the rumor that Dylan wrote a song called "From an Altgens 6"?
  9. GOP plan to "gut" Social Security within Covid legislation: https://www.salon.com/2020/05/22/republican-plot-to-gut-social-security-behind-closed-doors-gains-steam-in-senate-covid-19-talks_partner/
  10. I was just about to write, "ARRRGGGHHHH! I can hear it in my head but I can't remember!" But then I remembered, w/o googling. Where else could a kid hear such a catalog of urban catastrophe? "Car 54, where are you-ooouuu?" There's a hold up in the Bronx, Brooklyn's broken out in vice! Like New York had only one precinct. *** I'm sorry to hijack, but I also remember my first experience with TV news, which had commercials for a kind of sofa-bed called Castro Convertibles. I wondered, "Why doesn't the president like this guy?" That company must have gotten nasty phone calls from Alabama in 1962, the way guys named Al Nino and Al Kyda got them. It was the Serpico of its day...
  11. I wish. I'd have less weight to lose. So I could smoke even more. Is it too morbid to wonder if that guy has the funeral on his other flank?
  12. https://www.reddit.com/r/JFKresearcher/comments/9p1504/jfk_assassination_altgens_6_tattoo/ It's a nice art job, I'll give it that. Look at the side of the limo. No Billy Lovelady, so it's gotta be conspiracy. Come on -- we know you're a member here. 'Fess up!
  13. Oh, Jesus Christ! The new Biden gaffe's like an April Fool's joke. Don't ever say Trump's had no influence on geriatric politicians: https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2020/05/joe-biden-says-black-people-who-cant-choose-between-him-and-trump-aint-black.html Biden: “If You Have a Problem Figuring Out Whether You’re for Me or Trump, Then You Ain’t Black”
