French furious that "Dunkirk" doesn't show their own involvement

Three weeks, start to finish, then surrender, collaboration, Jewish deportations, and a phoneyed-up myth of French resistance. 

The French should be grateful that the movie restricted its coverage to just 12 seconds.

UPDATE: If you're curious, as I was, current French forces:Army, Air Force, Navy (just joking) is 200,000. America: 2,000,000.

Nice lady

Hanging's too good for her

Hanging's too good for her

Keli Ward an Arizona state senator who challenged John McCain in the Republican primary in 2016 urges him to step down immediately so she can be appointed to his seat.

Washington DC is a place for grand ambition, a place that no one gets without having something of a killer instinct. Usually it’s disguised a little better than in this WOWO interview with Kelli Ward, the woman who challenged John McCain in the 2016 primary, picked up here by CNN. Ward, a physician by trade, tells the Indiana station that the prospects for McCain’s health are “low,” and that he should get out of the way immediately in order to open up the seat for … Kelli Ward:
I hope that Senator McCain is going to look long and hard at this, that his family and his advisers are going to look at this, and they’re going to advise him to step away as quickly as possible,” she said on Indiana radio WOWO 1190 AM. “So that the business of the country and the business of Arizona being represented at the federal level can move forward.” …
“I would never presume to say what someone’s prognosis is without having exams,” she said. “As a Christian, I know there can always be miracles. But the likelihood that John McCain is going to come back to the Senate and be at full force for the people of our state and the people of the United States is low. That likelihood is low. So in our state, we don’t have a quick special election or anything if someone retires or resigns or steps away from their position.”
She added that if McCain steps down she hopes Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey considers appointing her to his seat until an election takes place in 2018 to decide who would fill it for the remainder of his term.
“Well, you know, I certainly hope so,” she said. “Because I have a proven track record of years in the state senate of being extremely effective and of listening to the voice of the people that I represent.”

It seems to me unlikely that Arizona voters will support this bitch when she does finally run for Senate.

Price cut

167 Zaccheus .jpg

167 Zaccheus Mead Lane, down to $7.995 million from its original price of $10.5. The original 1904 structure is quite beautiful, as are the grounds, and the sellers obviously poured a lot of money into bringing it up to date.

Unfortunately, they also tacked on an addition that's pretty damn hideous (on the exterior - inside is a japanesy tea-room sort of arrangement that might go better with a more modern house).

Maybe a new owner could just raze that part and return the house to its original grace.
