Tucson Weather Today


It seems that NBC is going to bring Hannibal Lecter to the TV audience beginning tonight. That character, created by author Thomas Harris, has been one of my favorites since the first time I read about him. and saw the movie, Silence of the Lambs, wherein Anthony Hopkins did the role of Hannibal justice as I don't believe anyone else could have.

I understand that the series is to be a prequel to that book (and movie) in the era of Hannibal Lecter's years as a psychiatrist.And, yes, I intend to watch this program tonight, and sincerely hope that I will not be disappointed. Its success or failure is mainly up to the talent and skill of the writers, but of course the star of the show (47-year-old Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen) must more than capably portray the infamous Doctor Lecter.

Details here . . .

Can you believe this? Republican lawmakers have filed a bill that would allow North Carolina to declare an official religion, in violation of the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Bill of Rights, and seeks to nullify any federal ruling against Christian prayer by public bodies statewide.

What is wrong with the GOP (our beloved Grand Old Party)? That question is being asked by people time and time again, these days. Well, the kind of nonsensical Ol' Time Religion stupidity revealed in the previous paragraph is a pretty darn good example.

Read about many amazing uses for WD-40 at the Reader's Digest website. Who knew that WD-40 had so many unsuspected uses?

For example:

Keep a can of WD-40 handy, and when you see a roach, spray a small amount directly on it for an instant kill.
To keep insects and spiders out of your home, spray WD-40 on windowsills and frames, screens, and door frames.

Who knew that WD-40 had so many unsuspected uses? Not me.

But I do now.

The civil rights leader was in Memphis to support a sanitation workers' strike and was on his way to dinner when a bullet struck him in the jaw and severed his spinal cord.
