China’s Muslim “re-education” camps seem remarkably luxurious when Western media are allowed to tour the facilities that house hundreds of thousands of detainees while they learn proper allegiance to Xi in an effort to prevent further crimes against the nation before they happen. It is quite the parallel to Spielberg’s masterpiece The Minority Report.

Horst was the name of yuppietom’s roommate on Long Island but their most memorable evening happened on a business trip in Las Vegas when, while walking back to their shared room at Caesar’s Palace from dinner at The Aladdin, they were propositioned by a bleached blonde member of the world’s oldest profession. Horst hopped into her car and made a transaction while yuppietom returned to CP on his own. Hours later, after yuppietom had tired of the gaming tables, he made his way back into the room and, while brushing his teeth, noticed a spent prophylactic in the bathroom waste basket. This did not surprise yuppietom but Horst’s explanation that the refuse was not a byproduct of his encounter with their first lady of the evening was indeed impressive. The guy did get around a bit that night.

Cores of foam polyethylene filled Rossignol F200 racquets.

Both frames feature the ''sock'' - or layered - construction of carbon and fiberglass that the company has featured in its skis.

First place in the final college football playoff poll was earned by LSU in their final game with a decisive victory in Atlanta over conference rival Georgia. Their reward is a return trip to the same stadium for the next game, this time versus Big 12 powerhouse Oklahoma. The Sooner QB has some experience in that stadium, having been the starter for Alabama for two of his three years and a winning substitute when they played in every SEC Championship game while he was enrolled in Tuscaloosa. That back story might be in his favor.

The Birds starred big cat lover Tippi Hedren. She and her husband started an animal sanctuary with many lions and tigers, and they were reckless with themselves and their daughter Melanie Griffith.



‘Roar’: Tippi Hedren Reveals How Many People Were Actually Hurt While Filming Legendarily Insane Movie
Was "the most dangerous film ever made" really that dangerous? (Spoiler alert: Yes.)

Noel Marshall’s legendarily wild and totally bonkers movie “Roar” has long been billed as one of the most dangerous movies ever made (if not the most dangerous), thanks to its use of a multitude of wild big cats, many of which have been blamed for harming scads of cast and crew. Marshall and his then-wife Tippi Hedren made the film back in the late seventies, casting their own family, including Hedren’s daughter Melanie Griffith and Marshall’s sons Jerry and John, as a clan terrorized by a pack of seemingly domesticated lions and tigers, oh my. (And the big cats? Those were theirs, too.)

For years, rumors have persisted that 70 people were injured during the film’s spectacularly ill-fated shoot — when Drafthouse re-released the film in 2015, they used that number to frame up their catchy tagline: “No animals were harmed in the making of this movie. 70 members of the cast and crew were.”

In a new interview with Variety, Hedren refutes the long-reported number, telling the outlet, “We didn’t have that many. Maybe they’re talking about people who hit their thumb when they were pounding on a nail. In the five years, I think there were seven people that were hurt, but not seriously. When we were making the movie there were a few instances. I was hurt. Melanie [Griffith] was hurt. My then husband [director Noel Marshall] was in the hospital so many times they were going to name a wing after him.”

Still, Hedren does admit that the film was as arduous to make as initially suspected.

“I don’t know how we survived it,” she told Vareity. “Our nine-month shoot turned into five years. We were one on one with those big cats. They’re dangerous animals and they’re big. As I made the movie I got into the issue of stopping the government from allowing people to breed lions and tigers as pets. They shouldn’t be pets. They’re apex predators, top of the food chain, one of four of the most dangerous animals in the world.”

The chessboard filled many eventful Sunday afternoons in my youth, and speaking of events, the song ''Stars Fell On Alabama'' (Billie Holiday or Ella Fitzgerald) was about an actual event in Alabama, wasn't it?
