These guys live for ever.

Marty Allen died this week at 95.  JP and I used to watch him in black and white on the Ed Sullivan show in the 50's with his comedy partner, Rossi. 

The screen machine

There's something special about the Scots and their cousins the Irish.  Both countries have loads of small villages and island communities far from 'civilization' and the advantages of modern life.  But in both places private non profit organizations built mobile movie theaters that travel the rural roads bringing current films to the isolated populations.  The trucks unfold into 80 seat modern theaters.  The Scot one serves 30 communities, including places with less than 100 residents.   America could learn a lesson

End violence as entertainment

We are raising a nation of demons!

2013 research
It's virtually impossible to keep your kid in a violence-free bubble. "Ninety percent of movies, 68% of video games, and 60% of TV shows show some depictions of violence," says Caroline Knorr, parenting editor for Common Sense Media, the online resource for vetting kids media. Kids 8 and under watch an average of 1 hour and 40 minutes of TV or DVDs a day; older kids watch an average of 4 hours daily. Most kids start playing video games around age 4, according to their research.
