I look forward to seeing this film. I have a great appreciation for Morgan Spurlock from his earlier film "Supersize Me" and this young boy is to be congratulated for landing a part in the film and it sounds as though he is the star.

How do you find this stuff on the internet. If I could do this maybe I wouldn't be so dependent on Beckley Topix for entertainment. Please enlighten me.

I actually just happened to see the headline here, under Beckley News. This might have some stuff you'd find interesting.

I don't know, with my short attention span I'm always bouncing around all over the internet. Since you enjoy discussing politics maybe there's something here?

Thanks, I'll give it a try. I've been doing more reading and downloaded "What it Takes" on to my Kindle and have been enjoying it. It was written by Richard Ben Cramer who died last weekend and I heard so many kudos for it from political types I decided to try it and really like it. That has led to looking up other stories on the internet...like the video rescue of the first George Bush from the sea after his plane was shot down in 1944, which led to watching a whole PBS show about his presidency. Whoa!

I read the Topix political links if it looks interesting. Thanks again.

I'd actually forgotten to consult with you before I posted anything. Are you by any chance confusing Williamsburg, VA with Lewisburg, WV?

And maybe you should have consulted with someone that knows what they are talking about & not just what you thought up in your HEAD??

Boorish, I'd never tell somebody that whatever they think is all right with me if it isn't.

I don't care what anyone thinks, Boorish, but I really am actually pretty sorry for creating so much unintentional confusion within this topic thread, and that Tyson's emotions prevented him/her from trying to reach resolution.

Due to my having read a Beckley news story,(which is located under "Beckley News" on the right-hand column of the Topix forum), and commenting afterwards, naturally, that resulted in its posting in forums with my comment appearing as #1.

I know that Tyson has a problem with the circumstances surrounding the child that was chosen to portray the lead role of the, as he/she put it, "retarded" boy highlighted in Paul LaPann's Parkersburg News and Sentinel article covering the film, as well as having issue with the fact that full credits for the film locations weren't included in the article, but there's nothing I can do about that.

You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink.
