Soooo, slaves were “well fed and had decent lodgings provided by the government?”

I’m feeling so much better about slavery since Bill O’Reilly put it into context for me.

By his logic, I needn’t feel guilty about kidnapping a person (of any race) and chaining them up in my basement to work for me — just so long as I feed them three meals a day and graciously do not charge them rent.


And your Darth Maul, Darth Sideous, Darth Billoriellycus and Darth Revan.


The Cigarette Smoking Man is a complex, nuanced, and alternately sympathetic and frightening villain.  He’s played by an outstanding actor, William B. Davis.  And he’s a better suited nemesis for a paranoid modern America than those pun-monikered space-zen anger-samurai from a galaxy far, far away.  All those guys (save for the apparently mute Maul) always sound like a fascist Deepak Chopra when they talk.  (In fairness, though, so does CSM, kinda.)


Behold — the new poster for the the return of “The X Files” in January.  (I guess I was wrong in predicting we would see only a younger CSM in flashback?)


Fun with fandom: go up to someone who is obsessing over “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” and say, with as straight a face as possible, “Man, you are REALLY into ‘Star Trek,’ aren’t you?”  Watch them implode.
