Academy Awards ran way too long (as usual). While I'm not a Seth MacFarlane fan, my guess is that today Captain Kirk regrets his decision to go back in time and saving the Oscar host, but letting Edith Keeler die.
Furthermore, except for Shirley Bassey, the Bond "tribute" was a huge bust.
At the end, Jack Nicholson was supposed to rise gallantly to his feet and lift Ben Arthur's body in his arms. But, Seth MacFarlane's musical routines ran over. That said, Ben Affleck is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I've ever known in my life.
"Many of the cars that were traded in during Cash for Clunkers were
perfectly functioning cars in good condition, and excellent candidates
to have their engines and other parts recycled. With the engine
destroyed, many clunkers bypassed the recycling companies and went
straight to junkyards to be crushed and shredded. The ARA issued a
report when the CARS program was announced saying that a much more
efficient program would have been to encourage recycled parts usage. The
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration explained at the time
that the engines must be destroyed to prevent the vehicles from being
resold and taking the road again. For any dealer that did not follow
that law, there was a hefty $15,000 fine per infraction against them."
Hopefully, President Obama will see this as a "teachable moment" to hold a White House "Hot Dog Summit" and raise awareness about the racist slur uttering thugs who trashed the property of hot dog vendor Clint Tarver.
Money pours in to replace hot dog vendor's equipment destroyed at Capitol
Viral Internet video and photographs of right-to-work protesters tearing down a tent and trashing a Lansing hot dog vendor's catering equipment has sparked an online fundraising drive to help a man known by most as "the hot dog guy."
During Tuesday's mass demonstrations that attracted an estimated 10,000 to the Capitol lawn, protesters of the right-to-work law the Legislature was passing and voting on tore down a tent rented by the Michigan chapter of Americans for Prosperity. Witnesses and Internet videos show protesters, some wearing union clothes, using knives or box cutters to cut the tent's ropes.
...Tarver, who had to crawl out of the collapsed tent on his knees, was overwhelmed Wednesday by the outpouring of support.
'I had no idea so many people cared about 'the hot dog guy,'' Tarver said.
Tarver, who is black, said the protesters called him an 'Uncle Tom' and the n-word for working for Americans for Prosperity, a conservative group supporting the right-to-work law.
