The 300

Has a new — new to me at least — theatrical trailer. You can find it here , after poking around a bit.

Oh, I forgot to say: “Oh, yes, I will see this.”

Update: From a reader:

So I watched the very cool trailer for 300, closed the link, and got to work editing children’s programming.

Welcome to Monday.

Me: Oh come on. This should be great inspiration. Just off the top of my head.

Elmo Voiceover: Be afraid! The thousand bureaucrats of the PBS system will descend upon you! Sesame Street shall burn to the ground.

Cut to Bert: “This is blasphemy! This is madness!”

Cookie Monster: “Madness? This…is…SESAME STREET!” Cookie Monster then kicks Bert down into Oscar the Grouch’s garbage can. “Muppet Monsters! Tonight we dine in Hell! Or the Corporation for Public Broadcasting — whichever we find first!”

I’m telling you the kids will love it!

We’ve Had Bill Barr’s Back

One of the more dismaying features of the national political debate lately is how casually and cynically Attorney General Bill Barr has been smeared. He is routinely compared to Roy Cohn on a cable-TV program that prides itself on assembling the most thoughtful and plugged-in political analysts and ... Read More
