Poor Thelma Todd. Found dead after arguing with her ex-husband Pat DiCicco… and then he was one of the three, including Wallace Beery and Albert Broccoli (future James Bond producer), who allegedly beat comedian Ted Healy to death. The studios fixed it so that the story was three college kids killed Healy.
I knew both stories, but hadn’t realized it was the same Pat. What a guy.
To fill the story out, Ted Healy was the comedian who originally assembled the Three Stooges.
It’s ironic he was beaten by three people.
So many jokes I could make about that… all of them inappropriate.
For the record, the Stooges were on the road at the time, and cannot be considered suspects.
Is there any truth to the rumors he said “Niagara Falls” before thevattack?
Ve haff the he-man thumb there, eh?
I don’t know, but I wonder if he was “slowly turning” at the time.
Anyone with half a brain knows this is nothing but Obama playing politics. Charles Krauthammer nails it:
“It’s Phase 2 of the 2012 campaign. The election returned to him to office. The fiscal cliff negotiations are designed to break the Republican opposition and grant him political supremacy, something he thinks he earned with his landslide 2.8-point victory margin on Election Day. / This is why he sent Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner to the Republicans to convey not a negotiating offer but a demand for unconditional surrender.”
So what do Re-Dumb-licans want to do? Surrender. Unconditionally.
Idiots. Big. Fat. F***ing! IDIOTS!
I just might vote straight Libertarian Party next election cycle. If I’m going to waste a vote, I might as well waste it on someone with principles.
Yeah,Daniel,I got reamed out for supporting Ron Paul.
They haven’t surrendered…yet. We’ll see how things shake out.
What’s more encouraging is resistance from the GOP at the state level.
I hope it turns out. I’m 99% sure that I’m going to unregister R after Christmas. I’m just TEA party and gearing up to fight the zombies while keeping my “mild mannered reporter” cover in tact.
I’m grabbing marshmallows, graham crackers, and Hershey bars. Why…
Hey moderators – the site is loading like frozen molasses again. Appears to be all the ads this time – wiating forever for them to pass through the virus filter. Much slower than just a few days ago.
I think there was a java glitch.
Maybe it’s just me, but even though I’m happy as ever that the Cowboys won today, I’m getting really tired of the “cliffhanger drama” that every game brings. I’d be really a pig in clover if just once they’d win a game by 20 points or so!
And to make matters worse, I’m also sick of a replay and study of every single scoring play so the Refs can decide if what they just saw really happened. For 70 some years there was no instant replay and when the Ref in the endzone threw up his hands, it was a score! Now…ya never know until after they take a magnifying glass to the replay of the edge of the endzone to see if a thread from the player’s jockstrap may have been over the line before he had control of the ball!
Typical Cowboys fan.
In the best Edward G. Robinson imitation I can muster in print, “Yeah, yeah!”
Someone needs to outlaw the Seahawks cuz they murdered the Cardinals today.
I blame it on the hanging chads’ phenom.
Yeah, but every so often the teams get a letter from the NFL almost a year later, saying that there was a bad call that ended up costing them a game or playoff shot, and that they’re awfully sorry about it. I’d rather they study the Hell out of plays during the game.
Get rid of instant replay,play the GD game.
If any of you don’t own this Sinatra/Crosby Christmas TV special DVD, then you better fix your problem. You can get it for 5 bucks!
I just received via Amazonia The Dean Martin Christmas Show on your recommendation. I’m saving it for when I’m in SoCal with my famblee to watch. I just sent my younger Sun a new bulb for his big screen TV (via Amazonia – cough – pay attention, Floyd), so Dino, who was bigger than life in life, will be almost as big as life.
So, I guess I’m moseying on over to Amazonia for Frank & Bing (kinda sounds like campfire food, don’t it?).
The Dino Christmas is great.
Hey, Perry Como’s over there, too. Nice.
Don’t forget The Jack Benny Christmas DVD. Mel Blanc is hilarious and makes Jack try to hide his cracking up.
OK, now I’m thinkin’ Bob Hope tours! Merry Christmas!!
