If anyone watched the first episode of Les Miserable tonight, how much of that was in the book? I read an abridged version and only remember the part with the priest.

So you've read the famous "buttered buns" scene?

Richard Dillman said...

I watched it, thought it was very good. As far as I know, much of tonight’s narrative was in the novel which is very long and detailed.
I didn’t read the entire book but had to translate sections of it in high school and college French classes. It was a good way to learn French.
Check out the wikapedia article on the novel for a pretty good synopsis of the plot.

Scowlface update:


Dan Bongino

@dbongino

Brennan, the police-state tyrant, is terrified. He’s terrified because his role in organizing the most disturbing abuse of government power in modern times is about to see daylight. He’ll be recognized by history only as a stain, and a blight, on our Nation. Bank on it.
John O. Brennan

@realDonaldTrump

Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very dangerous immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only....

In other significant news of the day...

The Sun (UK)
14th April 2019

Men with beards carry more germs than dogs including deadly bacteria in facial fuzz, study claims

Professor Andreas Gutzeit said the study showed hounds were 'clean compared with bearded men'

https://www.thesun.co.uk/sun-men/8860464/men-beards-germs-dogs-bacteria/

Since Trump is reported to be a noted germophobe, the fallout from this news is that Ted Cruz, David Letterman and Jullian Assange will probably not be invited to visit the White House.

how can a Semite be anti-Semitic?

Lewis Wetzel said...

""I think that there's nobody in the country who knows better that he should not be president of the United States than Donald Trump," Pelosi said when asked to describe the president."
Said Pelosi tonight on CBS .
Now how would she know such a thing? Surely Pelosi has no reputation for keen insight on human character. This is a vicious insult directed at the nearly 63,000,000 Americans who voted for Trump (unlike Chuck, I did not vote for Trump. My conscious is clear).

I’m all in favor of using the term anti-Jewish. Or Jewophobic

The @AnnAlthouse commentariat is overwhelmingly white. She'll need to be more inclusive going forward. I trust she will be.

narciso said...

Well khashoggi actually is of Turkish roots as are not a few of the leading clans like the rhunayans but the kingdom is where the last Jewish settlement was conquered around 641 ad (dont quote me)

Unknown said...

I'm white, but I'm not overwhelming.

Anonymous said...

Unlike Unknown at 10:44, I am both white and overwhelming . . . somewhat overwhelming . .. more whelming than average, anyway. And the Nat Geo Helix test says my wife and I both have less Neanderthal ancestry than most people as white (not to mention whelming) as we are.

Not sure what to make of that . . . I wonder if people with high levels of Neanderthal might want to form networks and support groups, and have conventions? Something to think about.

This again? Haha Howard nice troll.

PJ said...

@Scott, I’ve been listening to Jonathan and Darlene for years, but that one is new to me. Thanks so much!

Yancey Ward said...

I encourage Howard to go to any Arab country and tell them they are just like the Jews- Semites.

walter said...

Howie could bring the snark there as a stand up.
Might lose his head though.

narciso said...

I was watching a mighty heart about the Daniel pearl story and Marianne pearl (jolie) had to listen one of the villains of the story blaming 9/11 on the jews.

narciso said...

If one recalls as late as one months after September 11th khashoggi was openly dismissive of the tragedy and was positive bin laden hadn't done it. But then again ita like like raylan givens and boyd crowder.

walter said...

"khashoggi was openly dismissive of the tragedy and was positive bin laden hadn't done it."
Really? Please link..der linkmeister.

on the voice the contestants are all looking for That song - good luck to them all!

BudBrown said...

I luv Jack Nicklaus but maybe he should have an asterick on his name. Two of his majors
were Amateur Championships. Yeah, yeah, it was a "big deal" back then, uh huh, but then Woods gets no credit for his College Championships. One more major and Tiger has as many of the
pro wins as Jack.

Bay Area Guy said...

Congresswonan Tlaib calls out the Democrat Party leadership as racist. We will not be props in a photo!

"They put us in photos when they want to show our party is diverse. However, when we ask to be at the table, or speak up about issues that impact who we are, what we fight for & why we ran in the first place, we are ignored. To truly honor our diversity is to never silence us."

Racial hucksters gonna huck.

Once again narciso spends half an hour finding a link — and then won't spend 20 extra seconds turning it into an (html) link, so folks can conveniently follow it. (Shakes head.)

Humperdink said...

^^^^ Tough crowd. Takes a mere few seconds to copy and paste his info.

Ah frack. Is it my Monday again already? We do the intern work around here to keep the Big Thinkers unencumbered by administrative BS. Sorry guys, busy weekend, my bad.
