    Harry Potter

    The only reason I can think of why Harry is married is so that he can have a son named after Snape. His spouse being Ginny, only so JKR didn't have to explain who Harry's wife is. Unless it was someone else the reader was familiar with. The epilogue 19 years later would have been better left out. JMO
  3. While I don't spend more than 10 to 15 minutes watching, if this show was filmed in 35 mm, I would say what a waste of perfectly good celluloid.
  4. Last night was the first time in over five months that I watched Rachel. I tuned in because it was advertised during All In that Rachel was interviewing Beto O'Rourke. The segment was outstanding. Rachel started out with history of the Republicans 2006 push to pass an extension to the Voting Rights Act that had been signed into law by LBJ in 1965 but was going to expire. To try to get African Americans to vote for them in the upcoming midterms the Voting Rights Act was pushed by Republicans with the help of large corporations, starting with Walmart. Sadly only about five years later th

    I liked Ron and Hermione's relationship. It's a bit of the only real life boyfriend/girlfriend thing going on in the series. It was also sweet from Ron "she mental, that one" to the awkward but cute kiss. Harry and Ginny had no chemistry and that relationship was a dud. I could have seen Harry marrying into the Malfoy family with their baggage and contemptuous relationship. There is never an explanation into why Narcissa Malfoy muttered Draco then pronounced Harry dead knowing he wasn't. Did she think, what if this was Draco? How can I save him? I'm going by the movies be
  6. The four part series My Grandparents War began airing this past Sunday. Helena Bonham Carter learning about her maternal and paternal grandparents lives and roles pre and during WWII was quite interesting.

    Wow. I love Mehdi Hasan. He has his own show on Peacock Monday thru Friday at 7 pm ET and MSNBC recently added him to Sunday at 8 pm ET for an hour.
  8. Mediate can go straight to hell. When's the last time you had a vaccination and didn't feel confident and didn't think about it again? Although fully vaccinated I still feel vulnerable because COVID has been treated like the punchline of a dumb joke by a certain segment.
  9. Joe's not totally off base to be ranting against the anti science anti vaxxers We've now gotten both our COVID vaccines. But we're still following the CDC guidelines and I'm particularly getting sick of the COVID deniers.
  10. Joe's rant made mention of CNN'S special report COVID WAR The Pandemic Doctors Speak Out. It was pretty good and will be rerun later this week. The docs were living in a dog eat dog world.
  11. Neither of my children got chickenpox although I'm sure they were both exposed to it. By the time they were 11 and 6 their doctor recommended they get the chickenpox vaccine. When my older daughter was 15 and the younger daughter 10, they both got mild cases of chickenpox. The original shingles vaccine was recommended for adults 60+. I got shingles a few years before that (although it was just starting and I didn't know what it was ) but I went to the ER and was given Valtrex to stop it and it worked. At age 60 I got the vaccine but in 2019 Shingrex came out and it was recomme
  12. RIP Larry McMurtry. I've read every book Larry McMurtry wrote. I even have several that I ordered from his bookstore in Texas that he signed.
  13. This show is completely clueless as to what constitutes news. I don't know why I ever bother checking in occasionally however I know why after a five or ten minutes I turn it off. It wants to remain politics every day but sometimes breaking news is more important.
  14. Yes! Uber Eats got it's mojo back. Can't get enough of Leslie Jones!
  15. Fire Lover by Joseph Wambaugh (2002). This was a 2004 episode of Forensic Files called Point of Origin (which I've seen twice). Reccomend to FF fans and true crime story readers.
