CBS has adapted the Jesse Stone novels into a series of movie specials starring Tom Selleck in the title role. The movies begin out of sequence but stay relatively true to storylines and character with exceptions made mostly for television network viewing palatability, until the fourth film. Tom Selleck plays the character as straight from the novels as possible, and although Selleck is much older (late fifties/early sixties vs. late thirties in the books) than Stone, the author, Robert B. Parker, stated that he found the Jesse Stone movies the most accurate television adaptations of his novels, having gone so far to say on his blog that "Tom nails the character".[4]
As Police Chief Stone, Tom Selleck carries a Smith & Wesson Model SW1911SC .45 pistol. In real life, Tom Selleck is a former soldier and a skilled shooter and collector of firearms. Most of the characters that Selleck has portrayed in television who carry a sidearm have carried a type of Model 1911A1 .45 pistol. However, in the first novels, Jesse Stone usually carried a .38 Special Smith & Wesson Model 36 snub-nosed revolver; the same firearm that Stone carried when he was a homicide detective with the LAPD. Robert B. Parker's private detective character Spenser also carried a snub-nosed Smith & Wesson Model 36 .38 Special revolver in the first thirteen Spenser novels. In the most recent Jesse Stone novel, Robert B. Parker's Killing the Blues, Chief Jesse Stone has started carrying a 1911A1 Colt Commander .45 pistol.
Other regular characters have included Viola Davis as Police Officer Molly Crane, Kohl Sudduth as Police Officer Luther "Suitcase" Simpson, and Vito Rezza as Police Officer Anthony D'Angelo (as fellow members of the Paradise Police Department). The character of Anthony D'Angelo was no longer a member of the department by the time the 5th film Thin Ice, having quit at the urging of Chief Stone. The character of Molly Crane was discontinued in that film too. This was due to scheduling conflicts Viola Davis had with other film projects, which caused her to leave the film series. However, in the Jesse Stone storyline it was explained that she quit the department to raise a family after becoming pregnant. Her position in the department was replaced by Police Officer Rose Gammon, portrayed by Kathy Baker (from Picket Fences), who is actually closer to the character of Molly Crane from the novels. Stephen McHattie appears in some of the movies as Captain Healy head of the Massachusetts State Police Homicide Division and likewise William Devane as Dr. Dix, a former cop turned psychiatrist, who Stone sees for help with his drinking and other personal issues. Saul Rubinek has a recurring role as Hastings "Hasty" Hathaway, the former corrupt town council president, who has since been released from prison and is now running a local automobile dealership. Hasty and Jesse have become friends despite their past. Robert Harmon has directed all but one of the films (Dick Lowry directed Jesse Stone: Innocents Lost), and Jeff Beal has provided original music. Selections from the scores of all the movies to date were released on a limited edition CD by Varèse Sarabande in 2009.
Did you know that Jesus was a cross-dresser?

Did you know that Judas Iscariot invested those coins of Silver?
He did very well and later went on to become a Wall St. Traitor.

How's Robert Parker doin'? His life is a mystery.

"Wisconsin: Walker attorney challenging secret 'John Doe' probe
Associated Press
Posted: 02/28/2014 12:01:00 AM CST | Updated: about 2 hours ago

The attorney for Gov. Scott Walker's campaign is named in a court order as a lawyer in a case challenging the ongoing secret investigation into possible illegal campaigning.

Steven Biskupic is one of the attorneys named in a state appeals court order, the Wisconsin State Journal reported Friday.

The order issued Thursday by 4th District Court of Appeals Judge Brian Blanchard also reveals that eight unnamed parties are a subject of the secret probe that's reportedly focusing on activities during recall elections in 2011 and 2012, including the one targeting Walker.

The order indicates that Francis Schmitz, the prosecutor in the secret John Doe case, is asking the appeals court to overturn a ruling in January to quash subpoenas and order the return of property to the probe's targets.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the judge ruled some of the subpoenas don't show any probable cause that the targets committed any violations of campaign finance laws. His actual ruling remains under seal.

The Wall Street Journal said it had obtained a copy of the sealed subpoena and the judge's order quashing it. The newspaper previously reported that Walker's campaign, Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce, the Wisconsin Club for Growth, and Citizens for a Strong America, their officers and directors had been subpoenaed.

In its last campaign finance statement, Friends of Scott Walker reported paying Biskupic's firm $86,000 in legal fees. Asked earlier this month whether the payments were related to the John Doe probe, the governor responded, "I'm not getting into the details of it."

Biskupic is the former U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin.

There are at least four court cases related to the secret investigation. The Club for Growth and its director Eric O'Keefe filed a federal lawsuit on Feb. 10 arguing that the investigation violates their rights to freedom of speech and equal protection under the law.

There are also two separate cases before the state Supreme Court attempting to stop the investigation, in addition to the appeal Schmitz brought that the appeals court issued its order on Thursday."

Your observations bear out the old truth that simple minds think simple.
Conservative minds are widely varied and often disagree with each other but especially within a Party framework.
Your average Republican revels in fascism, greed and power abuse, with no repect for anyone's rights but his own. The only variatiation in their thinking is how far they'll go get what they want.

Agreed.
But an Ox is actually smarter.
That explains why we control the White House and Senate.

Btw, everything seems "socialist" to a Fascist-Pig Republican.

That might scare him a little.
NO!

He should land on the deck of a U.S. carrier, strut around on the deck in a flight suit and declare "Mission Accomplished". An end to combat operations in the Ukraine.

Then Putin will give up just like the Iraqis did.

The decent thing is for you to apologize for assuming something that's both hurtful and untrue.
Oh get off it Carol, how many times have you denigrated the poor for being lazy? There's not a compassionate bone in your body.
