CultureZohn: Bonnie and Clyde and Me
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Bonnie and Clyde courtesy J. "Boots" Hinton American Experience is airing their season opening film tonight on Bonnie and Clyde. It's comprehensive and thoughtful, and grounds the story most of us came to know through the 1967 film directed by Arthur Penn starring Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty. The real depression era story is only 50 percent as glam. Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow did excite the down-at-the-heels country with their derring-do, it was an age when gangsters offered some relief against the powerlessness most felt. Clyde was an expert at hot-wiring cars (they didn't actually rob as many banks), Bonnie had stars in her eyes. Their short-lived spree ended in tragedy. The real Bonnie and Clyde death scene It points up that sometimes fiction is much more fun than truth, and in the case of this film, another species entirely.

Suzanne Somers Calls Affordable Care Act A 'Ponzi Scheme' In Wall Street Journal Piece
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Former "Three's Company" star and ThighMaster aficionado Suzanne Somers thinks President Obama's Affordable Care Act is really just one big Ponzi scheme. Somers took to The Wall Street Journal to offer up her opinion on what the Affordable Care Act will mean for retirees, and apparently the 67-year-old thinks it all equates to socialized medicine. She said she has observed the pitfalls of this in Canada (her husband, Alan Hamel, is Canadian), where animals supposedly get better care than humans and where she claims her sister-in-law had to wait two months to see a general practitioner. She also posited that there really isn't anything "affordable" about the Affordable Care Act because "all you are hearing on the news is how everyone’s premiums are doubling and tripling." For retirees, she added, this "might work if you don’t get too old and you don’t get too sick, and you don’t live too long." After claiming Medicare dollars will be spent to cover the "skyrocketing cost" Obamacare, ...

Binky Philips: I Meet The King in 1956 and Paul Simon Meets Two Stewardesses in 1992
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
It's 1956, I am 3 and a half years old. My best friend is Corky. His dad is taking us, along with Corky's two utterly fascinating sisters, to the Central Park Zoo in his green Packard "woodie" station wagon. Corky and I were in the back seat. I can still see our little oxblood purple shoes on the seat in front of us. Corky and I were so tiny there was no leg dangling back there. In the front seat, next to the driving dad, sat Corky's older sisters, Omeara and Thebe (cool and unusual Irish names). About 6 and 8 years old. For several minutes, they were pushing the buttons of the radio and whining about something that I didn't understand. Suddenly, in one voice, they shrieked "Elvis!" Their dad yelled to "Simmer down!" and we all listened to "Hound Dog." Omeara and Thebe were squirming and ooooo-ing and ahhhhh-ing and just about swooning throughout the entire song. And I, barely awakening heterosexual, was hypnotically transfixed by what this guy's voice on the radio was doing ...

Did you know?: Old Navy hires Backstreet Boys
The Express Tribune Blogs - over 4 years
Old Navy and the Backstreet Boys were both at the height of their cool in the late ‘90s. Now, in an appropriate pairing, the clothing store chain and the boy band are getting together for a fit of retro appreciation. The Backstreet Boys are set to play a free show in New York City’s Bryant Park on Friday for the occasion of Old Navy’s “Rockstar Jeans” fashion show — an event open for the public. The band will also star in an upcoming commercial for “Rockstar Jeans” premiering next Wednesday, according to a press release. This isn’t the first time Old Navy has hired forgotten celebrities in order to push their products, according to the Huffington Post. In 1997, it hired ‘80s soap opera stars Morgan Fairchild and Joan Collins — the ads were hugely successful. Let’s see if the strategy works out for them again!

Berman's wife helps lead effort to woo female voters
LATimes - over 4 years
Janis Berman has found a new way to stand by her man.  She's co-chairing  a "Women for Berman" campaign group and has sent emails to  supporters of her husband, Democratic Rep. Howard Berman, as he fights for his political life in the fall election. "I'm proud of the work Howard has done over the years, but his continuous and unfaltering support of women's rights and equality stand out most to me," Janis Berman wrote in announcing the launch of the campaign group and a website, Women for Berman.   Among the 15 other co-chairs are actress Morgan Fairchild, former Burbank Mayor Mary Lou Howard and politically prominent attorney Lisa Specht. Berman is competing with fellow Democratic Rep. Brad Sherman for the same San Fernando Valley-based House seat. Last year's redistricting put their homes in the same district and neither was willing to run elsewhere; the result is one of the most watched and  expensive congressional races in the country this year. Sherman finished 10 percentage ...
