GATSBY isn't ROMEO + JULIET or MOULIN ROUGE -- it's much toned down from that. But it's still largely a joy. I love Baz Luhrmann.
I enjoyed GREAT GATSBY. Leo Decaprio is wonderful. Tobey Maguire was wasted on Spider-Man.

Have to say I was pretty disappointed by NEW STAR TREK 2. Some good stuff but a lot is ill-conceived or just plain poorly plotted.

And before I speed this bird's nest, we found another with dead babies. Lots of death and new life going on here. Very intense.
On the other hand, my dog just killed a mouse, and I saw it die after she let go of it for cheese and to come back inside.
Amazing to see this unfold in real time, so close I could watch it from my window. Heartwarming stuff.
The babies got ridiculously big for the nest, and I saw one today, on the deck and still learning to fly. They're all gone now.
When it rained, the mother sheltered the babies. When I came outside, she'd chirp and try to lure me away from the nest.
I've been watching a mother and father bird feed their young for several days. Nest right by my back door.
Are you kidding? You're amazing!
Some folks suggested I work on a "classic" Wonder Woman project, ala the Adam West-inspired Batman comic coming out. That sounds like fun!

I really feel like I'm trough the looking glass on this whole scandal outrage. Investigate, yes. But GOP doesn't have a leg to stand on.
I'd you believe in the solitary executive, which was the theory behind Bush's wiretaps and torture, what the IRS did wasn't even wrong!
IRS shouldn't discriminate. Even against orgs using a loophole in IRS internal code to be tax-free AND unaccountable political ad machines.
The GOP complaining about WIRETAPS is like a mobster who ran a massive organized theft ring feigning outrage about someone stealing $100.
There's a big difference between tapping reporters to find a security leak and intimidating reporters, as Bush admin routinely did.
I'm not saying give Obama admin a pass on the AP taps. But if you didn't / don't want 1000x worse for Bush officials, you're hypocritical.
Tapping to find a security leak? Questionable. But Bush admin threatened reporters, not simply leaks, with jail. And wiretapped wildly.
Let's look into the AP wiretaps. But don't forget how violently the right attacked the reporter who revealed Bush's illegal wiretap program.
The AP wiretaps need investigation. But Bush ran a massive illegal wiretap program with zero attempt at legality.
If wwr outlaw bazookas, only criminals will have bazookas.
The U.S. is apparently now grappling non-stop with the distinction between "yes, that's important, now let's fix it" and "scandal!!!"
I don't think it's a coincidence that, instead of keeping the pressure up on guns and immigration, we're talking Benghazi and scandals.
Good God, anyone interviewing Dick Cheney who doesn't ask him why he's not in jail for his crimes is not a serious journalist.

How about we focus on schools closing a month early and seniors going hungry, due to sequester, instead of Benghazi conspiracy theories?
