This is why each state should have an effective death penalty.

And what brings a straight man to the gay threads to post daily under numerous usernames, R1? We have all been wondering about your obsession for over four years now!

By responding to the bashers, you only encourage them, because all they seek is attention in their pathetic little lives.

If you simply ignore them and pretend they don't even exist, they will eventually tire and go haunt elsewhere.

Just because the family states it doesn't make it so. Also, the perpetrators assumed the victim was gay (right or wrong), so it was a hate crime.
By the way, we've moved on from our "agenda", we now have bylaws and regular meetings and everything.

The beauty of being me is that I can claim eithor sleep deprivation OR age (or both).

Bill Paxton. Awesome actor. He was great in Twister too.

I looked for Freddie Simpson in Google, Wikipedia, and the IMDB - there's next to nothing about her. She must know how to keep herself off the grid pretty well.

I've only seen her in "A League Of Their Own" (GREAT MOVIE, yes i said it again !), and although I really liked a lot of teh actors and actresses in that movie, she is one of the actresses taht re4ally stood out to me.

Maybe she does mostly stage work. A lot of actors do that. Only occasional movies or tv, and mostly stage work.

Penny Marshall made that great movie, and her brother Garry was in it too. For some strange reason I always thought they were both Jewish, and I just found out they're not. LOL (They're Italian and were raised Protestant according to what i read).

Today is one of those RARE days where a BUNCH of great movies were\are on today.

Today I watched:

1. ALIENS (The GREATEST movie ever made !:))

2. A League Of Their Own

3. A Bridge Too Far (I've been a World War II historian for 40 years)

4. The Rape Of Richard Beck (which I'm watching right now). Powerful film and that lesbian actress Meredith Baxter is in it.

My wife was a big fan of Ugly Betty, though I did like how America(the actress) transformed in the final episode.

Which 2 actors do you not like?

Yes, we've high-jacked this thread... but it's not like they all don't dissolve into little isult fests anyway.

Don't worry though, FaFoxy and I will be back to our regularly scheduled insulting of each other after these brief messages...
