Kane Omission

Name: Michael Mayhew Source: unca20071217.htm At this time of writers struggling for proper recognition and remuneration, I must re-post to mention that the Citizen Kane screenplay was written by Welles and Herman J. Mankiewicz. They won an Oscar for it. Most everyone who reads this board probably ...

Kane

Name: Michael Mayhew Source: unca20071217.htm Alan: Sorry that what made me smile did not make you smile. But never mind that crap: go rent, buy or borrow Citizen Kane.

Dennis Thompson

Name: Michael Mayhew Source: unca20071217.htm I think, at least with this group, the question of whether or not torture "works" (as a tool for gaining information) bears chiefly on how one frames the arguments against torture. Everyone here agrees that it is immoral to torture. But some (sad to say...

Torture

Name: Michael Mayhew Source: unca20071217.htm Sometimes it feels like we are shouting past each other on the question of whether torture "works." (it seems everyone here, including KOS, agrees that it is wrong for moral reasons). But on the practical side, is there actually enough data to say that ...

Contrary Opinions

Name: Michael Mayhew Source: unca20071217.htm Dirk. What you say is demonstrably not true. Compare n' contrast the posted political views of KOS and Frank Church, just as a starting point. So, other than generalized negativity about this site's breadth of views, do you have a specific opinion that ...

The Lay/Lie Conundrum

Name: Michael Mayhew Source: unca20071217.htm KOS: Since you asked, and since no one else has answered, and since I made the initial error, I will delve into the thickets of the Lay/Lie conundrum. But I must type slooooowly, because this is one of those things where there is a terrible dissonance b...

Name: Michael Mayhew Source: unca20071217.htm HARLAN, three things. 1) I am busted on grammar and spelling. Some of that (minutiae) was the sad result of typing and sending quickly. But send I did; I own up to all of it. You have me dead to rights. 2) Sal Lombino. Yeah, okay, he wrote as Evan Hunte...

Henry Enoch Sharp

Name: Michael Mayhew Source: unca20071217.htm A couple more tidbits: Henry Sharp did the cover illustration for The Feathered Serpent by Evan Hunter (pen name of S. A. Lombinio, better known as the crime writer Ed McBain). You may see the work (and purchase the book, if you've got half a grand layi...

this n' that n' cats

Name: Michael Mayhew Source: unca20071217.htm KOS: I think the drawing of misbehaving Disney characters that you saw may have been Wally Wood's 1967 satirical painting, which you may see again here: http://pranks.com/2007/03/18/the-disneyland-memorial-orgy-by-paul-krassner/ HARLAN: Okay, now I'm cu...

WWW

Name: Michael Mayhew Source: unca20071217.htm 1) I second Brian's recollection of the two different title sequences 2) While I don't think I would have like to hang out with Robert Conrad, I do think that his chemistry with Ross Martin was a big part of the appeal of the show. West was macho and a ...
