A Supreme Court Nominee's Early Onset Alzheimer's

I haven't delved too deeply into the cesspool to find out about Supreme Court nominee John Roberts, in part because I feel I don't have to. I'm sorry, but in my opinion, if you're going to nominate someone for the Surpreme Court, then he should have a judicial record that goes back further than the purchase date for most of my underwear. Beyond that, it's just ridiculous that Roberts can't seem to recall whether or not he was a member of The Federalist Society even though he was recently listed in one of their leadership directories.

Amazing, there are lots of things I don't remember. However, I'm pretty certain that I would be able to recall whether I was part of such a well-known organization (in a leadership position no less) at some point in the past 10 years. Roberts isn't saying he was never a member; he's saying he can't remember if he was a member or not. Shouldn't we demand better mental agility from our Supreme Court justices.

Just a thought.

Opening Line to Next Review

The opening line to my review of the production of The War of the Worlds I watched last week:

This production single-handedly cemented my new Second Law of Bad Movies: if you see boobies in the first 30 seconds of the film, and it is neither an adult feature nor explicitly about sex and/or the human body, chances are that the nipples are being used to distract you from the trainwreck you are about to witness.

Thanks

Thank you, tournevis, for the new moose icons. I will upload more of them when I upgrade this page to a paid account.
