Movies I Want To see
Birdman with Michael Keaton. Keaton WAS Batman. And this review of the movie Birdman sounds like it will be outstanding.
Fury out with Brad Pitt, who is, in my opinion, way too old for the role he plays. Doesn't matter, really, because I'm not going to go see it, but guys who like to play Call of Duty probably will. I read there's a rape scene in it that minimizes how bad rape......

Rick Perry Dropped the Ball on Ebola -Too Busy Being Out of the Country???

I don't want tax money going to toll roads. Never have, never w......

Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 10/22/2014
I VOTED! Went down to the Somervell County courthouse early this morning and early voted. Mostly Democrat, of course, to include WENDY DAVIS and Letiticia Van Putte. At least, if they don't either one win, it won't be because of me.
