First Snopes debunked it, now Morgan Freeman himself has stated that the widely-circulated quote condemning the media's response to the Newtown, CT tragedy is, in fact, not from him. The statement took the media to task for the manner in which they cover mass shootings, claiming that it glorifies the killers and gave other disturbed individuals an incentive to follow suit. The fact that the statement purported to be from the beloved, Academy Award-winning 75 year old actor led to it being posted and re-posted far and wide the Internet over, which led some to become suspicious of the quote's true source.
This is not the first political stance misattributed to Freeman: in September, a quote from a Twitter parody account featuring Freeman's photo condemning homophobia was widely attributed to the actor himself, in spite of clear indications—the spelling of the account, the profanity it employed—that it was not him.
they used to say that misinformatoin was one of the tools of communist countries to maintain control by convincing their population of the way things should be ...

now we know it can happen anywhere to anyone.

My first taste of sausage gravy and toast was during basic training in the military. Bad stuff!
Fast forward to 2007. My new bride for four years kept asking if I ever wanted that for breakfast. I grumbled something and finally relented. Was I ever surprised! Yum yum!!
There was a pub that sponsored some runners for, "Race for the Cure. My wife prepared two crock pots of her "magic". After the race, folks came back looking for seconds only to find the pots empty! Everyone enjoyed it!
I will have coffee and a Mimosa, please.
sometimes the recipe is bad, sometimes the cook is bad. Looks like your first experience was with bad cook?

If my actions of the last few days have taught me anything at all, it is, one cannot afford to make comments about other people's reactions to anything....
I read your post over an hour ago PFfff, and had to go away and compose myself,(cup of sweet tea!) frankly I am gutted I insulted anyone at all, it hasn't been a traumatic enough time without me putting in my twopennorth....
You have never insulted me.
I stayed behind the scenes this morning, trying to come to terms with the fact I had actually alienated you, and possibly others, from this thread, you of all people, one of the nicest ladies on offbeat...
to say I am so relieved you are gracious enough to suggest we put it behind us, is an understantement.
I do hope we can...I'm willin'...:)
That's all I can say at the moment.
I wish you the most Merry of Christmas's and thank you....
As an "innocent" bystander and having read all posts .. I feel that this has been an emotionally charged issue with a vast array of different feelings about it. For varying reasons, some prefer not to talk about it because it is too upsetting, others feel it must be talked bout because we wish we could do something about it ... and many people somewhere in between the extremes ...

SO, it is not surprising that the same words were interpretted so differently .... in fact I bet if there were 30 readers there were 30 interpretations ....

I don't think anyone intended to have such extreme reactions to their words ... I now EL that you are not one to purposely say anything controversial or unkind and I believe that Pfft knows that about you as well ...

SO, I think it comes down more to emotional reactions leading to misunderstandings . and once the parties involved realize this, then calmer appraoches can be taken after that.

I'm glad you talked about how you took an hour to sit back and think about it ... that shows in your post which was well stated and clearly not an emotional "gut reaction",

Kudos to you for this level headed post EL....

Hi El. My wife and I went to a casino and had a nice drive and a good lunch. The sad thing is I lost $20 :) Well Obama went on TV and as we thought he is going to expand gun control or at least try to. We have a bill being introduced in Texas that will really reduce the probability of another tragedy. Just like they have sky marshals we will have school marshals. They will be unknown who is the first responders and will be school personal who will have concealed carry license and police training and will be a deputy. These nuts don't go to places they know someone will be armed. Blame the person who pulled the trigger not the gun

grace they had a assault rifle gun ban for 10 years and it did nothing. There were several mass shootings during the ban. It just makes people think you are doing something. He did tie it with mental health so if you are against his gun grab you are against mental health

Oh my! You humble me, Lady El.

an excerpt offered; "doctored" from the Hollies tune:

"It's a long, long road
From which there is no return
While we're on the way to there
Why not share
And the load
Doesn't weigh me down at all

She ain't heavy, she's my cuzzin"

Golden slumbers for you tonight; waking up to morning bright.

when I was a lad, it was 3 networks and an independent.
The three networks, WGN local, public broadcasting and I don't know what UHF was or stood for.

Kudos to CNN for not mentioning the shooter's name but going to great lengths to identify and mention personal things to remember the victims!

<quoted text>when you take away reality shows (Jersey Shore anyone?) and repeats, etc etc ... about 20% of the content is much good. Also consider the fact that 3/4 of those channels have the same shows on them ... you probably come down to maybe 20 channels that offer real choice.
Pretty accurate statistics there. I did notice she we upgraded and got more channels it was the duplicates.

2 channels!?! Wow !
Did you know Holiday Inn was done before White Christmas but by far not as popular. Holiday Inn was the first time "White Christmas" the song appeared in a musical.
They are all classics and wherever you are I think there's something that touches you about all three movies.
Be well Tony
I did indeed know that. It was the success of the song that caused the Studio to make "White Christmas", substituting Danny Kaye for Fred Astaire, who starred alongside Bing in the first movie. The first was released in 1942, the second in 1954. Although Irving Berlin wrote the music for both, I have to say I much prefer the first movie.

Did you know Frank Capra got the story from "The Greatest Gift", by Philip Vam Doren Stern, who wrote it in 1939 and then published it privately in 1943 with 200 copies to send out to friends at Xmas? I've read it - it's far darker than Capra's movie. Ironically, the movie flopped in 1946 when it opened and was panned by the critics, bankrupting Capra's new studio who had financed its $3.7 million budget. Jimmy Stewart only took the role because Lionel Barrymore (who plays Potter), persuaded him to do it.
