Allen's op-ed from tomorrow's NYT.
(Yes, I've mastered time travel!)

http://mobile.nytimes.com/2014/02/09/opinion/sunday/woody-allen-speaks-out.html?smid=tw-share&_r=0&referrer=

Deserves a read.

I remember reading a ?NYT Sunday mag account of all this way back in the day, and I thought Mia trumped it all up then.
I'm definitely in the Moses Farrell camp now. And I have always thought Allen's relationship with his current wife when she was the teenaged daughter of his then lover is completely inappropriate.

And with no offense intended to anybody who has a large family, who fosters 60 + kids, that sort of amazing thing---but let's just say that kind of behavior by a single parent is at least six deviations out from the mean.

secret datasets?....Just pay for everything...believe whatever they say....& shut up, you earth hater you.

It makes me mindful of how the "green" gurus from across the country poured money into the Virginia governors race because they uber hated Cuccinelli for daring to try & get access to Michael Mann's PUBLICLY FUNDED research. How dare anyone check on how taxpayer money is being spent.

Both seem to come through; I recall whem those figures where issued four years ago, we rightfully disputed them,

Miss Marple

centralcal, I watch all things classified as Big Public Events. Royal weddings? I am there at 5AM watching live. I have watched all Inaugurations since Kennedy, all political conventions ditto, moon launches, Olympic Ceremonies, The Investiture of Charles as Prince of Wales at Carnaervon Castle, Sir Winston Churchill's funeral (I was in high school), etc.

I have an odd fascination of spectacle when combined with history. So that is why I watch. I can therfore tell you that the Russians did less well than the Chinese, whose opening with a thousand drums was the most spectacular (and the most frightening in its implications) of all opening ceremonies within my memory.

The torchlighting was meh, since no one will ever be able to top that archer lighting the torch with a flaming arrow at Barcelona.

And NBC has ruined the Olympics. When ABC had them the emphasis was on sport, and human interest stories were only covered when it was pertinent to the coverage. NBC makes these sob stories a central focus, which is ridiculous, as they have turned off many viewers.

I miss Jim McKay and Roone Arledge and the 1960's coverage that was done so well. Every time I see Costas and Lauer my contempt increases. I wish I could get the IOC to rescind NBC's monopoly on coverage, but that's a lost cause since NBC probably bribed them all.

From the comment section with the Allen op-ed:


This story is a projection screen for every reader's own particular biases. What a reader sees in this story has little if anything to do with with what "actually" happened in the Allen-Farrow family. My own bias: my mother falsely accused my father of molesting my sister in the midst of a brutal divorce and custody battle. Decades later my sister remains tortured by the uncertainty of whether something happened to her, although she has no concrete memory of anything happening, and the story that something happened always originated with my mother and not with herself. These accusations destroyed my family and my father's life in particular, who was devastated by the suspicion that would be cast his direction (he died an early death and attributed his illness to the extreme emotional stress of his divorce). I am thus familiar with the witch-hunt mentality that accusations of sexual abuse can engender. When the accusations are false, lives are destroyed. And how terrible for those who actually suffered abuse: are their true needs even being met through these public rituals of sacrifice? When will a coherent story emerge about (1) the true scope of actual sexual abuse of children, and (2) the scapegoating fantasies that devastate so many others yet get much less press? If publishing the Farrow and Allen letters leads to a drive to raise awareness about both problems, then perhaps it will have served a constructive purpose. Otherwise it's hard to see one.

Lace that mix.

Heh, social workers call the moments when the family regathers for the evening the 'Arsenic Hour'.

Jane - Here is a shorter, easier? version of the code needed to post a picture within a JOM comment:

< img src="" >
[ with NO space after the < , and NO space before the > ]

All you need, in addition to the code, is the URL of the picture you want to post.
Copy the URL into the code between the pair of quotation marks, and voilá, your picture will be posted.

Your full code will read like this:

< img src="http://WWW.JOM.typhus-pad.com/URL-of-your-picture.jpg" >
[ with the < and > placed without spaces following and preceding them ]

. . . and you will be able to post pics like this:

Another Jane, but not as attractive as JOM Jane !


Next up, a "how-to" on using www.picresize.com to shrink pictures to fit within the width of the JOM columns. It's easy-peasy, too . . .

Hope that this helps you to post pics!

Safety tip: the image has to be on the web somewhere, a pic on your computer / iPad is not.

good comment, anonamom.

Janet - the districts lie fallow, while the Capitol gorges itself

Yeah, MM. You have to post a word - put a comment under the pic! Not sure why, but you have to.

I am not going to try the picture thing any more. I will only get things messed up.

Well, the entire post disappeared, so I will see if posting another comment makes it magically appear.

--Next up, a "how-to" on using www.picresize.com--

Haven't used google in a long time but on Bing every picture has a "more sizes" link to the lower right. Most pictures have many sizes available including those of 400 and under width.
Occasionally you'll have to resize one but not that often.

centralcal

Miss Marple, pay attention to Henry's comment at 9:48 am.

I don't like to mess with code, so I use the Firefox Toolbar to post pictures and links. It is really easy peasy. Plus it does all the text formatting for you too (bold, italics, etc.) and you don't have to worry about missing tags that screw up the thread until someone comes along to fix it! A frequent occurrence here, alas. LOL.

There's a certain place in Hell for people who use children as pawns in divorce battles. And that earlier thing about all the 26 year olds living with their parents; I'd be borderline suicidal if my nest suddenly became unempty. We raised our children to be independent; the JEF's crummy economy deserves a certain amount of blame but after that it has more to do with how well of a job the parents did.

My html code requires this sequence to post a photo:

Needs a back-slash after the last quotation mark. I also take pictures from the web or personal sources and upload to Photobucket then edit and resize there. Very simple method.

Try it.

Captain Hate

And NBC has ruined the Olympics.

NBC Sports has been a major clustereff for a long time. I think the downfall began when they fired Marv Albert for getting hinky with some dumpy skeezer who went screaming to the press probably because she was mentally ill. This was at the same time Slick was having his Monica problems so obviously I was very upset about the wrong person keeping his job. They dropped NBA basketball shortly after that and Marv went elsewhere and became known as the gold standard in play by play announcing. At that point they had zero presence in any of the major sports (sorry hockey fans). They then signed a whopper contract with Notre Dame to carry their football games right when that program went in the toilet. When they finally picked up the Sunday night NFL games they put Olbermann on the in studio desk where he irritated so many people they got rid of him and now the sanctimonious Costas has filled that void. I guess we should be glad that the Maddow feller and Special Ed haven't been added to the Olympic coverage.

That's why the 'what difference does it make,'

Janet, I happen to know someone who retired from that department and knows him. He is highly recommended by my acquaintance for his ethics and lack of political involvement.

My acquaintance also thought most of IRS thing would turn out to be nothing but a screw-up. I will certainly ask him about all of this when he returns from his current trip.

Did you try only one picture, MM?
You may have the html right but are trying to post a picture that is in a format that won't post using html.

Miss Marple

Ignatz, I cannot explain why my entire post disappeared.

I used to post in HTML on Free Republic several years ago and the code came back to me. I also used a public jpg file, so it isn't that. I also used a web site that is used to heavy traffic.

It really isn't important. Only very rarely have I wanted to post a picture here and when I do, I just post it as a link.

On to other things! I want my friend to get back so I can check on Russell George and what's going on. I am not about to email him as I bet his email is monitored.

Ol' Raymond Maxwell's poem might come in handy if Hillary gets the nomination -

The Queen’s Henchmen
request the pleasure of your company
at a Lynching – to be held
at 23rd and C Streets NW
on Tuesday, December 18, 2012
just past sunset.

Dress: Formal, Masks and Hoods -
the four being lynched
must never know the identities
of their executioners, or what/
whose sin required their sacrifice.

A blood sacrifice –
to divert the hounds -
to appease the gods -
to cleanse our filth and
satisfy our guilty consciences.

Arrive promptly at sunset –
injustice will be swift.
there will be no trial,
no review of evidence,
no due process, and no
accountability.

Dress warmly -
a chilling effect will instantly
envelop Foggy Bottom.
Extrajudicial.
Total impunity.
A kangaroo court in
a banana republic.

B.Y.O.B.
Refreshments will not be served
because of the continuing resolution.

And the ones being lynched?
Who cares? They are pawns in a game.
Our game. All suckers, all fools,
all knaves who volunteered to serve -
Us. And the truth? The truth?
What difference at this point does it make?

In the event of inclement weather,
or the Queen’s incapacitation,
her Henchmen will carry out this lynching -
as ordered, as planned.

Rick the huge mistake often made in reducing the national debt to the scary per capita amount that it is, is that the writer usually assumes that each person will repay his own share. Of course now that we are perfectly OK with most of the cost of government being paid by the top qunitile or decile of legal citizens, I can only assume that BL will have to pay his own share and those of a dozen others.

When the Cray reboots I will figure the decimal points.

Miss Marple

Marlene, I personally think that he spends very little time doing anything but watching TV sports, being stoned on whatever substance, and partying with his buddies.

I think he golfs to have an excuse to meet unsavory characters for various unsavory activities and plotting.

Once in a while he reads a speech his handlers give him, and his lack of input it shown by how much he laughs at his own jokes, like they are a big surprise to him.

I am afraid it is Jarrett who is mostly calling the shots, and I think she is flat-out crazy.

It really has gotten beyond joking, I agree.
