Lillian Gish was one of the most important actors in movie history.
She was there at the beginning of moving pictures working with D.W. Griffith, inventing the grammar of film, perfecting the new style of acting for the motion picture camera. She was Hollywood’s first great actress. Her film career lasted for 75 years from 1912 to her last film The Whales of August on 1987. She passed away in 1993 at the age of 99.
I’ve just finished a long and depressing conversation with a close friend who attends Daf Yomi with yours truly. We were wondering (among other things) what has possessed Barack Hussein Obama to release five more ruthless Gitmo detainees?
All evidence, and common sense, suggests that these IslamoNazis will return to jihad and commit further rampages of murder, torture, rape, and plunder.
I suggested that Obama is a classic narcissist who will do what he wants regardless of the consequences. My friend asked, not unreasonably, if Obama does not heed his national security briefings? We went around and around the matter. But ultimately the question of Obama’s motivations are irrelevant. His actions are the only things that count. And this POTUS is guilty of dereliction of duty.
Okay. Got that out of the way.
