Top Headlines
Is Letitia James living large on campaign funds that were laundered through Act Blue's ghost bots? One donor made over 3,200 small donations to Act Blue in 2022. Some of that money found its way to Letitia. [Buck]
Question: How do you pronounce the word "dour"?
I've read it and written it a lot but I've never said it and I don't think I've ever heard it. I know how I say it in my head -- I say it like "sour."
Would you be shocked to learn that the correct pronunciation is not "dow-er," rhyming with sour, but "dure," rhyming with "burr"? See the Cambridge dictionary, for example.
Now dictionary people are aware that people are saying it to rhyme with "sour" and are now providing that as a secondary pronunciation of the word, to match how people are actually saying it. Via Storied, with more mispronounced words.
Atlanta Journal-Constitution refers to the illegal alien from Venezuela who was arrested for murdering a Georgia nursing student as an "Athens resident." Our media suppresses the truth, and our President has invited Venezuela to dump its hardened criminals on us, much like Castro did with the Mariel Boatlift. [Buck]
Hushed Limbaugh: "There couldn't have been a Donald Trump without a Rush Limbaugh to pave the way." My latest essay over at Taki's Magazine. Please read and comment (it's a paying gig!) [J.J. Sefton]
Ace of Spades Movie Club: The Heartbreak Kid, original version, 1972, with Charles Grodin and Cybil Sheppard
This movie is currently unavailable to buy legally, because the company that bought it went out of business or something. It's in license hell. But this copy is on YouTube. I've never seen it, but I'm watching it now. I understand that it's much darker and the main character is much crueler than in the Farelly Brothers 2007 version, where they justified his actions by making his new bride crazy and a serial liar. Who has a massive coke debt and also has no job. Says so in the dictionary.
Update: It's pretty good, but it is a lot darker and more uncomfortable. The Farelly Brothers movie takes the basic script and turns every scene into a big comedy set-piece. I think Ben Stiller's endless lies were funnier than Charles Grodin's. Interestingly, Charles Grodin does the Fake Federal Agent act here that he later repeats in Midnight Run. He does the same act with different words.
BTW here's the original short story the film is based on. Now I want to watch the 2007 remake again.
The Critical Drinker made a movie
It's low-budget. But low budget movies can be good depending on execution and how they hide the limitations of budget.
Megyn Kelly talks with a lawyer about the cell phone geofence data putting Sweedick inside Fani
Technology has really gotten advanced
Fani's office has responded, claiming that they're contacting experts to try to debunk the geofance data. And are they also going to disprove the 180 phone calls per month and 1,200 sexts in a month?
More from Technofog, who calls it a "game changer"
Chad and JT (the guys who go to city council meetings to propose erecting statues to honor Paul Walker) are very funny in this Adam Carolla show appearance
They talk about fighting and JT claims that his go-to move in a streetfight is just to j*rk the other guy off so that he's calm and peaceful. They keep going back to this claim and it's funny every time.
Cold case review into the long-unsolved Jon-Benet Ramsey case
Not really much to suggest they'll ever close the case. They go through the stuff about the cops fixating on the parents as suspects, and the stranger DNA found on the girl's underwear, but we've known that for 20 years. One new clue, maybe, is the presence of dots on the body that may indicate the girl was subdued with a stungun.
From Second City Cop: Sergeant Test Video seems to be missing something! Anyone notice the lack of white men? [CBD]
Vice to lay off hundreds of staffers, stop publishing content on its website
"It's devastating to have a group of reporters who have made such a significant impact in the world have their jobs end in this way[.]"
That is a perfect quotation; it shows exactly why they are going away. [CBD]
Court Strikes Down Law That Let Noncitizens Vote in New York Elections Eh...they'll just vote the cemetery rolls a few more times... [CBD]
