Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

Kent Brockman is perhaps the most respected name in journalism these days. I'm only half-kidding about this...  Kennedy in a Hat would be a good name for a band... This may be true of a Southern woman but if a guy from New England tells you "Keep talking" he means if you don't shut your yap you're going to catch a beating... The word "panned" comes from the French word for "breakdowns." So in essence when a movie is "panned" by critics it is usually because it "breaks down" and things don't work... WTF? Seriously - WTF?... "Charles Bronson was an aircraft gunner" is both a true statement (he flew on 25 B-29 bomber missions in WW II) and something which would make a great song lyric... Just a reminder - starting this February dissent is no longer the highest form of patriotism (and the homeless will mysteriously vanish from any and all news reports)... If "evade" means to escape - shouldn't "vade" mean to get caught?...
