Well Cuz Luke, I personally would not as much as speak of Lance Armstrong in the same breath as the late Jimmy Savile.

Lance Armstrong has never hurt anyone, he has paid for his folly by having his seven Tour de France titles stripped from him, whereas Savile was a sexual predator
of immense proportions, for 50 years no less. The scum of the Earth.

<quoted text>El have you ever been to Hyde Park on a Sunday and seen speakers corner? I love seeing all the people standing on a ladder and talking about their favorite topic. I was told they stand on the ladder so they don't commit treason on British soil :)
I used to live around the corner. Used to swim in the Serpentine.
But never did see Speaker's corner, and certainly never heard about
the reason for the ladder Denny, most interesting.

Mrs B..
was very funny last night! LOL
Yeah, a few good movies doing the rounds
right now -
NO excuse for me - the multiplex 'state-of-the-art
cinemas' are about 10mins from where I live.
My son advised me on the phone
NOT to
miss 'THE HOBBIT, An Unexpected journey'
he says it's superb...
he was engrossed in it.
cold here, threatening snow.
Very funny indeed...always good for a laugh.

Have to confess, I am not happy about the way
the animals were looked after, or rather, not looked
after, during the filming of the Hobbit...so I won't
go to see it on principle.

Sorry.

I thought it was so funny. Each person would draw a crowd depending on his speaking ability and topic. People from the crowd might argue with him. I need to find out about treason on British soil

However, he had his cancer scare, divorced his spouse after almost 20 years of marriage and hooked up with Sheryl Crowe!
Not a real man in my book!!!!

If I seem angry, I apologize. Just a personal issue...

<quoted text>Good morning Quinn. I just can't get excited about Lincoln but if you say it was good I may check it out
Quite honestly, I couldn't get excited about it either. I think that was picked due to show time. He was such an interesting self made man I did not know what to expect. The movie focused on the ratification of the 13th Amendment and Lincoln's last days. We know it got ratified, we know when he was assassinated, but still it full of anticipation to hear the vote count.

I was very impressed with the movie and the cast. It was like when we saw The Artist ..... didn't interest me but when I saw it I thought it was an amazing film.

<quoted text>Good Morning Quincy...we had snow last night so are playing safe
today. I WILL get to see these movies eventually. It's such
a journey to the multi-complex cinema.
Glad you enjoyed Lincoln..
Quentin Tarantino was a guest on my fave chat show, Graham Norton,
a clip of Django was shown, looks interesting. I like QT..he
seems a nice chap. Shy almost, in real life.
Kind of consumed with mega violence. I did like on or two of his earlier movies. My husband is a fan of QT and loved Pulp Fiction. He said Django has more violence than any of the prior movies.

We haven't any yet but it was so d***n cold after it rained Sunday night that my car windows were frozen shut. Makes going through the drive thru interesting!

That is funny. I only knew it to be ultra violent. Not my cup of tea. The only movie of I liked was Reservoir Dogs. Pulp Fiction didn't do anything for me.

<quoted text>The outrage has happened! Spike Lee was first. The movie has been compared to Sergio Leone westerns.
Journalists have called it a black exploitation film that only a white director could get away with. Race has always been an issue in Hollywood.
Hope the Mrs is better.
Now that's funnier because I'm more a fan of Spike Lee than I am of Quentin!

I'm sorry to hear that Denny. Between pneumonia and the flu almost everyone I know is getting knocked out by one or the other. Hope she is over it soon.

Good afternoon/eveningtide to ye Kitchen-eers.

I gots a "controversial topix" to bear. See, on the one hand, we have a cancer survivor, fierce competitor, winner, involved in foundation for garnering millions of dollars for cancer research and survivor support; a heroic personality.

On the other, we have a cheat, fraud, and bully (of the "little guy" that would obstruct his purposes).

Does the end justify the means?

This article is by the author of the flowing, brilliant piece about the Irish-woman boxer during the Summer Olympics; Yahoo! sports columnist.

He has condensed reportage by other sources into some pointed observations:

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/questions-oprah-...

And, I see parallel [but by no means attempting to make the activities "the same" gravity; one is obviously more heinous] between Armstrong and Saville -- powerful people with a power network, though not necessarily in the literal broadcast sense, of loyals to achieve/cover his purpose.
It's the best kept secret everyone already knew. Does anyone really think OJ Simpson is innocent?

Isn't there some saying "power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely"?

The saddest thing is that they blackballed the woman who wouldn't lie for Armstrong ..... and he lost a lot anyway.

Our loss. Perhaps another time. Do hope you enjoy Mexico. I was only there once. Beautiful beaches. It was also nice to venture into some non tourist spots.
that is what I am hoping for ... I know some columbian people, they speak the language and look Mexican so I hope we get to go off the beaten path a bit.
