Karma maybe: “Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, 42, died from her injuries while director Joel Souza was injured after a prop gun misfired. in New Mexico on Thursday”. No, it didn’t “misfire”. It was intentionally fired by Alex “no guns for peasants” Baldwin. Nothing I have read since the incident has indicated anything other than Baldwin screwed up. Hey Alex, There are 4 simple rules. 1) All guns are loaded until you unload them. 2) Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire. 3) Never point a gun at anything you aren’t willing to destroy. 4) Always know what’s behind your target. These are the 4 rules of gun handling. Even on a movie set. You violated all of them.Too bad you are so arrogant that you think they don’t apply to you. They do.
I am Alitalia: Former Alitalia flight attendants protested this week against job losses and pay cuts in a particularly Italian way — by taking their clothes off. At the Campidoglio about 50 female former flight attendants, who turned up in their Alitalia uniforms, then removed them to stand in their underwear, chanting “We are Alitalia.” Theirs was a demonstration to protest not only against their job losses, but also against the contracts awarded to those who have been retained by ITA Airways. This is a protest I could get behind.
Don’t like the rule: Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said Friday the U.S. “may need to update” its definition for what it means to have full vaccination against COVID. You don’t like it, change it. No problem.
No expendables here: The head of a Haitian gang holding 17 American and Canadian missionaries’ captive has threatened to kill them if a ransom isn’t paid, according to a video. “I swear that if I don’t get what I want, I prefer to kill the Americans. I’ll put a bullet in each of their heads,” said Wilson Joseph, believed by Haitian officials to be the head of the “400 Mawozo” gang that carried out the brazen mass kidnapping. Isn’t this when Sly and his Green Seals, or Airborne Berets or whatever they are supposed to be, isn’t this when they show up and shoot all the bad guys? Special Op’s are trained for this, but Uncle Joe doesn’t have the courage to send them. This will probably end badly.
Send in the clowns: First the phoney Fauci “bio-pic” and now “Mayor Pete”, the Pete “I’m on maternity leave” Buttigieg bio. All I can say, WHY? And who cares? Who watches? What’s next? Oh, I know, “The Admiral That Thought He Was A Lady.”
One hundred and forty years ago, in Tombstone AZ, 2 groups of men met at the OK Corral. Their gunfight would be remembered in at least 8 movies. Thea actual fight lasted maybe 30 seconds with 30 rounds fired from pistols and 1 double barreled shotgun. Recently, I was involved in a discussion on if Wyatt Earp was a “hero” or not. He was just a man, better than some, worse than others. Decision; No man’s life can be judged by a single event.
