Go Tell The Spartans (Vietnam 1964)
Post Date: 2022-07-10 16:10:06 by BTP Holdings
Burt Lancaster, in one of the finest performances of his career, stars as Asa Barker, a savvy U.S. major who reluctantly obeys an order to send a detachment of South Vietnamese troops and American advisors to a former French outpost that has been peaceful for years. Barker fears this action will draw the Viet Cong into the area – and he's right. The ill-advised order and its effect on Barker and his men provide the battle-ravaged background in this gripping story that's both an intimate portrayal of a few men at war and a microcosm of the American experience in Vietnam. The problems of myopic judgement in the high command and plummeting morale in the field seen in 1964 would ...

Poster Comment:I'm not so sure that's a great idea. I'd hate to trim their claws. I've seen some foxes down by the Maumee River. Mostly in the hood it's groundhogs, squirrels, coons and feral cats. My sick, old groundhog finally waddled off to die somewhere. I didn't want to get out the "assault shovel" to dispatch it. Rabies is more dangerous than Covi.

The Telephone
Post Date: 2022-04-21 08:32:06 by Ada
I remember when the telephone was a useful and appreciated device. The digital revolution, one of humanity’s most unfortunate developments, has turned the telephone into a nuisance and a threat. The telephone is such a nuisance that most people no longer answer when it rings or even bother to set up the feature to record phone messages. The telephone is such a nuisance that many people do not even use it for calls. Instead, they text, and they only answer texts. Ninety-five percent of the calls I get are scams, tele-marketing and robo-marketing calls. The telephone is a constant disruption. I don’t answer and rely on the answering machine. No one I call answers either. Not ...
