THIS is my idea of a perfect vacation getaway! Book in my hand and toes in the sand...

On the German island (Borkum) where I used to live, these cars were used in the 18th and 19th century. Modern built and renovated versions are still in use by the life guards as we speak, as a remembrance of old times.

It is a shame, but I understand why. There is an amazing amount of horrible commentary out there. I really enjoy reading well-moderated and well-thought out discussions. My local newspapers never seem to have that...
The Chicago Sun-Times has temporarily turned off reader commenting on its website's articles until it can figure out how to stop the "negativity," "racism" and "hate speech" that floods its pages, the Sun-Times Media Gro...

“Thalberg: Life and Legend,” authored by Bob Thomas: “At times Irving Thalberg seemed to hate his very dependence on writers and his frustration that he could not perform their functions. During one heated script session, he said almost contemptuously, ‘What’s all this business about being a writer? It’s just putting one word after another.’ Lenore Coffee (a screenwriter) corrected him: ‘Pardon me, Mr. Thalberg; it’s putting one right word after another.’”
