I don't think it was a matter of wanting to get rich, per se, +Tom Reeves . I suspect, as the article says, that he was feeling his fade into irrelevance and wanted to try something new. Fusion was largely irrelevant by '83, especially the funk-infused fusion that he helped to pioneer.

Talented guys who were not famous for long enough.  They still rock hard.

I know it's been said before, but if anyone can amplify on - or repudiate -  my thinking, I'd appreciate it.

My pet theory behind climate denial is this.  It's not necessarily that deniers are anti-science, per se (very few of them will for example turn off their televisions or refuse medical care).  The real problem is this: if anthropogenic climate change is a real thing (and I think that it is), it's proof of a major failure in market economics.  Because we are dumping carbon dioxide and methane into the atmosphere at a ruinous rate, and because there is no way for the market to price the externalities, the only seemingly reasonable solution is government intervention.

Now, if you're categorically, whether philosophically or for purely mercenary reasons, opposed to government intervention in the markets, the only way for you to stop such an intervention is to simply deny that the problem is human-caused.

Where am I going wrong or right with this?

I think there has to be a governmental role. Left to their own devices, corporations will be dumping all kinds of toxic sludge in rivers, etc. It just is the point of how far it goes in not digging for natural gas when we find proper ways of fracking because it will of course affect the environment. As long as we don't pollute water supplies and such, it should definitely be an exploited resource. The environmentalist movement acts as if it just shouldn't be used at all and ONLY solar, wind, etc should be used. Well sorry but the tech isn't ready yet for that scale. Glad to when it works as well for a similar cost, but not yet. Then you will get people protesting wind because birds fly into them, or they are an 'eyesore'.

Like all things, balance is needed. you can't go crapping all over the environment, but you don't have to walk on tip toes either.

For all of you cinephiles who would be willing to make the huge sacrifice of traveling to Santa Barbara (one of the most beautful places in CA), this might be a good excuse
 
The Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF) is a cinephile’s paradise – an eleven day celebration of cinema at several historical theaters on the American Rivera in beautiful downtown Santa Barbara from January 30th – February 9th. Each year, SBIFF proudly presents a diverse slate of more than 200 films to over 75,000 film enthusiasts – an audience that includes industry professionals, leading reporters and critics from Variety, Hollywood Reporter and IndieWire as well as local and regional cinephiles, film students and independent filmmakers. Attendees, filmmakers and special guests converge in an intimate atmosphere with unprecedented opportunities to network, share advice and see new work from some of the world’s most cutting edge auteurs.

This year, the SBIFF will honor director Martin Scorsese and actor Leonardo DiCaprio with the Cinema Vanguard Award that will be presented on February 6, 2013. Scorsese and DiCaprio will be celebrated for their extraordinary film collaboration which has produced five exemplary films including Gangs of New York, The Aviator, Shutter Island, The Departed and their latest, the critically acclaimed hit film The Wolf of Wall Street, which has taken their fearless and uncompromising work together to an even deeper level.

Individual tickets are available for tribute events and SBIFF passes range from priority access to all films, tributes, and parties as well as different levels of passes for film screening, which include transferable 4 and 10 film MiniPak punch cards. SBIFF also offers a series of free community screenings and events, including several academy award nominated animated films for families at the historic Arlington Theatre.

And THIS, ladies and gentlemen, is why Erin Andrews is about the best in the business.
By now, pretty much everyone has seen the video of Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman loudly proclaiming his status as the "best corner in the game" and calling the 49ers' Michael Crabtree a "sorr...

I do okay with my kids, and I can't hold a candle to this guy.  Much respect.
 
How is it that we live in 2013 and this guy got hate mail for being a father and doing father stuff with his kids?

Send hate mail to the guys who deserve it - the abusers, the deadbeats, the neglectful.

Leave this guy alone!
The only thing Doyin Richards wanted to do was get his daughter ready for school. He had no idea the viral outrage that would cause.

You must be forgetting the fact that you wore your daughter for almost a full year!
