Hi Y’all! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Cathy and I just stuck around home this year and made up a feast out of turkey parts, (breast and tails) baked yams, green beans, stuffing and pineapple pie for dessert. We saw two new movies: Into The Wild and American Gangster. Into The Wild is very good, a haunting story that is hard to stop thinking about, even though I am not crazy about the ending. American Gangster had a lot of potential, but I wanted the two stars, Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe to meet much earlier in the film than they actually do. As a result, the story seems to drift and mark time until the fated meeting comes up and when that happens, the film only runs 15 more minutes! Imagine if you had two lead actors under contract to be in your movie, would you have them on parallel tracks for over two hours? I don’t think you would, the temptation to have them meet would be too great.

Are you looking at Allan Holtz’s Stripper’s Guide blog every Saturday? There is a link to his site on the right side of this page. He reprints a lot of rare George Herriman editorial cartoons from 1906, San Francisco Examiner I believe. This should give you a good dose of Garge until Krazy Kat returns some day.
