i think i'll watch a classic movie later tonight. High Noon, starring Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly.
The IMDb plot summary says: "A sheriff, personally compelled to face a returning deadly enemy, finds that his own town refuses to help him." Sounds like a metaphor for George W. Bush and the Democrats.
Sorry, i couldn't resist the political jab.

Let's Go To Hollywood
You'll love it, Annie. I saw it a year ago and I was shocked at the Bush/Cooper parallels. Just like Cooper tried to get the townspeople to help, Bush tried to get "the world" (i.e., France and Germany) on board with pacifying the Mideast, but they didn't want to go. So he had to fight all by himself (almost).
You should watch Charlton Heston's Omega Man next. You'll really love it if you imagine that Heston is a lone California conservative trying to fight off the vampiric, goth-looking liberal lemmings of the world.........
This is a classic! My husband loved it and we watched it every time we could. Wonderful story of convictions, strength, and love.
Also check out The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. Check out my review here: http://tryingtogrok.mu.nu/archives/025487.html
