Zeroing in on Sniper

There's something I don't understand here:

In spite of the vitriol spewed toward the movie “American Sniper,” Americans flocked to see the Clint Eastwood biopic of the late Navy SEAL Chris Kyle in record numbers.

No libertarians in space

Here's another reason why you shouldn't let politics guide your entertainment choices. I have enjoyed "Start Trek" and all its iterations so much that I could surely be labeled a Trekkie. But it turns out to be the most anti-libertarian show in history:

Dark Side companions

Such sweet sorrow

Hey, it's Stupid Celebrities Amusing Us Monday:

Peter O'Toole

RIP, Peter O'Toole. God almighty, what a freakisly handsome man he was in his "Lawrence of Arabia" days.

In fact, he holds the record for the most Oscar nominations without a win.
