Trump rolls back Obama standards which affect the climate

Terrible. The Trump cult doesn’t believe in science or facts.

Kurosawa films on TCM on 4/1

TCM is running a series of films directed by Akira Kurosawa tomorrow starting with Drunken Angel. The star, Toshiro Mifune, would have been 100 years old this year. I recommend all of them but my favorites are:

Yojimbo and its sequel Sanjuro

Trump lies about coronavirus tests

Trump claims nobody is saying there aren’t enough tests. Just another lie.

He blames it on Obama when the virus didn’t exist during the Obama years. Liar!

Coronavirus stats sources

This is the problem. The coronavirus stats should be coming from the federal government, not the networks and universities. Since they aren’t federal, that makes it easier for right wing extremists to question them.

Are conronavirus stats reliable?

That’s what happens when you don’t have one consistent source of data – people question it.

Stop airing Trump’s lies

The Cameraman was Keaton’s first film for MGM and his last great feature. After that, MGM ruined his career by placing him in bad films. He had much less control than when he made features independently.

This tweet shows film locations:

The Criterion Collection will issue it on Blu-ray in June 2020.
