I don't mind a movie being a bit longer (up to 3 hours maximum) if it is good .. I had hoped Lincoln was longer actualy ...

Movies, a fine subject.
I like action films for the most part and really don't mind the historicals. I can't watch anything from the first Gulf War as an active participant...just me. No interest in Django Unchained! Seen enough of those films...
42, a movie about Jackie Robinson is due out. Probably won't see that either. Now, if in fact William "Dummy" Hoy was a film, I am so there!!! That name is for ALL the baseball lovers IF they know who he was.

Lady El, I have been coaching BrightEyes on translations for UK English. There are times she wants to post and she reads it to me and I let her know that you can't say that because it would not be received properly. She giggles.

Good to see all is well.
Peace.

but they played down the British role in the rescue, to the

The Enigma Files was a bit one-sided to put it nicely.

Hi there El! You have to be sawing logs by now surrounded by curled up kittens unless they are nocturnal. The dogs have gotten accustomed to our schedule in that Daisy sleeps in the bed and won't get out til we do; Mickey she wakes up at 4am to go out otherwise they are with us all night.

My laundry would have been freeze dried ..... or frozen stiff!! Snow accumulated on the grass & car last night though melted as the day went on. Down state go the worst of it.

The problem with Hollywood versus documentaries is Hollywood takes a lot of creative license for dramatic affect whereas documentaries generally tell the story without embellishment for the sake of drama.

<quoted text>Zero Dark Thirty was much better but because it showed the results from water boarding it wasn't politically correct :)Macain said torture does work even though he broke under it.
are the results always true and accurate information or is it a matter of statistical average? You're more likely than not to get accurate info?

I hold no string opinion one way or the other I'm just asking.

I read the bio on William Hoy ... very impressive... he is regarded as the most accomplished deaf player in major league history He also lived to be 99 years old at a time when the life expectancy was barely 60.

I would probably agree with you because there were so many fascinating aspects of his life and even though we knew the outcome, history still held a level if suspense.....at least for me.

Deaf baseball player? That would peak my interest and I'm not even a baseball fan. Will look for books on his bio. There's a movie about him coming out?

I thought it was fascinating, I had never known the "behind the scenes" manuevering involved.

I don't know .. Boomer mentioned him and said that was a movie he would watch if ti was made, while he would not watch the one coming out about Jackie Robinson (the first black player in the major leagues).

I wonder how any deaf players there have been in baseball?

I have nothing against water boarding. We water board our own troops so they know they will not die but they will be scared. Everyone breaks at some point. Now we don't waterboard we just kill them. The Obama administration has only sent 1 person to Gitmo. The rest died on the battlefield :(

That IS bad. At least many of the items I find on public television are survivor accounts and raw news footage.

I just wondered how reliable the information really is. People can still lie, especially those willing to due for a cause and be martyrs.

I think it's a most deplorable practice
.. against everything deep4378
in me, personally..

but allowing for others and their differing
opinions here.

Denny, you 'n I must have something
special, we differ on many things
and yet can manage to remain cyber friends..

KUDOS to YOU ... well, I suppose > (and me](:

With a skilled interrogator they know when they get the truth. They ask them things they already know for one thing. I met a magician who works for the government. He is a mentalist and is very good. He helps the interrogator and the people think he can read their mind so the spill information

Grace the point is it works and does no real harm to the body. It is used on our own troops so they will know what it does and will help them to get through it if it is done to them. I just find it ironic that Obama protested against it so strongly and called it torture. So now instead of capture and interrogation they drop a bomb on them and kill them.There were only 3 people who were water boarded and it lead to killing UBL.
