Lonely are the Brave was Kirk Douglas' favorite film of all the ones he made

And mine too.

Based on a novel by the great Edward Abbey. Douglas loved the book and spearheaded the film, recruting equally talented writer Dalton Trumbo for the screenplay. It is about trying to live a life of freedom in an increasingly ordered world. A beautiful movie, made in 1962 in New Mexico.

Iowa: Take a chill pill, everybody

snip

"A good rule of thumb in life is to assume that whatever Trump says, the opposite is true. In this case, this is not a disaster, but rather a weird event that will be forgotten by Super Tuesday, if not by the New Hampshire primary next week.

Arguably, this minor snafu has a bright silver lining, as it may increase pressure to replace the outdated Iowa caucuses with a modern and much fairer primary election."

“The city of Atlanta has welcomed me with open arms,” said Young. “Giving back to this community is extremely important to me. I hope these families can find a bit of relief knowing that their bills have been taken care of as we enter the New Year.”

Young has been a bright spot on the court for Atlanta as well. Averaging 28.9 points, 4.3 rebounds and 8.4 assists per game on 44.8% shooting from the floor and 37.5% from behind the arc, Young is definitely a cornerstone of the franchise in Atlanta.


Dude is just a class act and only 21 years old. In addition, Young and Houston star James Harden set an NBA record tonight with each posting a triple double while scoring 40 plus points.
