Rear View Mirror – My Week In Review

Dude, I swear, I don't know those people.
“Dude, I swear, I never said that and I don’t know those people.” – Jesus

 

Some things I have been thinking about this week:

1. Your Facebook “friends” are not really your friends. Facebook is not a real thing. You may know some of them in real life and are actually friends with them, but just because you agreed to connect with them on the internet does not mean you owe anybody anything.

2. Why aren’t parents vaccinating their kids? Are these the same crazy religious weirdoes that also don’t give their kids medicine because it’s “God’s will”?  Those parents end up going to jail for child abuse when their kids die.

3. How many people have to die before people stop responding to mass shootings with candle light vigils and posters and ribbons? None of those things are going to stop a bullet. How many more people have to die before people get angry and start holding elected officials accountable? Until we start electing people that will have the courage to address safer gun regulations and mental illness, innocent people will be murdered. Those innocent people may be your friends, family or you. How fucking stupid does lighting a candle seem now?

Happy Birthday Rosalind Russell

Today is the 107th birthday of Rosalind Russell.  Suggesting any one of her films to watch is in no way discounting any of the others. I adore The Women, His Girl Friday, Gypsy, and Mrs. Pollifax – Spy, just for starters.  You may have your own, it is hard to not have at least a couple.

NAME: Rosalind Russell
OCCUPATION: Theater Actress, Film Actor/Film Actress
BIRTH DATE: June 4, 1907
DEATH DATE: November 28, 1976
EDUCATION: American Academy of Dramatic Arts, Marymount College
PLACE OF BIRTH: Waterbury, Connecticut
PLACE OF DEATH: Beverly Hills, California

BEST KNOWN FOR: Theater and film actress Rosalind Russell costarred in His Girl Friday with Cary Grant, and played Auntie Mame in both the Broadway play and the movie version.

Rosalind Russell was born on June 4, 1907, in Waterbury, Connecticut. She made her on-screen debut in 1934’s Evelyn Prentice. In 1940 she starred in His Girl Friday. When her film career slowed in the 1950s, she moved to Broadway plays, including Auntie Mame, a role she reprised for the movie. Eventually, arthritis stopped her from performing. She died on November 28, 1976, in Beverly Hills, California.
