Mark Morford: Religion will be the death of us all (SF Gate)
To be clear: [E.O.] Wilson is not suggesting we're headed for fiery apocalypse. Rather, he shows how we are systematically, methodically wiping out our own habitat, destroying the razor-thin biosphere that holds it all together, casually decimating all the delicate, complex ecosystems that both created us and keeps us alive. "Death by a thousand cuts," he says. What's worse: We can't seem to stop.
Caitlin Donovan: 6 Insulting Movie Adaptations of Strong Female Characters (Cracked)
Movies have always had problems representing women as actual complex human beings. Writer Kelly Sue DeConnick has noted that a disturbing number of female characters in modern stories fail to pass The Sexy Lamp Test. It's a test that asks, "Can a woman in this story be replaced with a sexy lamp, or is she more than just an attractive prop there for the men to fight over?"
Wolverine Publicity (TV Tropes)
I stopped reading X-Men about the same time they started putting Wolverine on the cover of comics in which he didn't actually, technically, appear. - Lore Sjöberg, The Book of Ratings, "Marvel Supervillains (Part I)"
Richard Deacon (May 14, 1921 - August 8, 1984), born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was an American television and motion picture actor.
His best-known roles are milksop Mel Cooley on CBS's The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961-1966) and Fred Rutherford on Leave It to Beaver (1957-1963).
Richard Deacon was the bald, bespectacled character actor most famous for playing television producer Mel Cooley on The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961) from 1961 to 1966. In the first season of that show he also continued to appear on the series he was already appearing on, Leave It to Beaver (1957), playing Lumpy Rutherford's father Fred.

Hey, that would be Richard Deacon, and here is a rare photo

Jim from CA, retired to ID, responded:
That would be the actor, Richard Deacon (which I had to look up because I had no ideaI). In the 1997 movie "Leave it to Beaver" the actor Alan Rachins played Lumpy's father.

Thought you might like to add a new TV station, this is my new fav (other than
COZI when they run "Murder She Wrote.")
While looking for Escape
locally (it's on channel 46.3 in LA), found another channel,
Get TV (it's on channel 46.2 in LA).
Both have been added.
Richard Deacon as Fred Rutherford and Mel Cooley.
Dave in Tucson answered:
That would be Richard Deacon.
Hmmmm, Lumpy Deacon. Is that what you would call someone in the Catholic hierachy finally getting busted for pedophilia?
DJ Useo responded:
Richard Deacon, & I always enjoyed his appearances.
I also remember him from The Jack Benny Program, & the Danny Thomas Show.
In this picture of the Dick Van Dyke Show cast doing the dance "the Twizzle", you can see Mel's wife in a striped shirt. :)
( I don't think Richard Deacon ever married )
Pokey Dale of Diamond Springs Norcali said:
Richard Deacon was "the Lump's" dad. Forget Mel Cooley, he was the father of Clarence. One of my early life mentors was Eddie Haskell. Too bad he turned out to be a chump cop. Wowie Zowie, "the Lump" kicked the bucket on Apr 13, 2013.
Well, I survived my first ream job ever, (believe it or not!) Guess what? They said I was experiencing too much pain (I don't remember, I was in La La land) so they pulled out and I get to go back and experience the fucking wonderful process again. A lot of you are laughing but I really think I'm going to give birth to a real asshole baby!
Joe S wrote:
I don't know, Richard Deacon? I looked up the Google and that's what I came up with, so you know what I always say. " Trust the Google." I don't know about all those relationships in the question but I remember the Beav's friend Lumpy.
I had a friend named Lumpy. Not a friend really, more of an acquaintance and a Union Brother. He was a raging alcoholic, just couldn't quit. He took antabuse to control his drinking and drank anyway. That would get him really sick. I was the Community Service officer and the Chief Steward so he came to me for help. I tried to set him up with help and he tried too, but he wouldn't stop drinking. His wife died from alcohol poisoning and a short time later he drank himself to death as well. It ain't all fun and games out there people.
Why is it when some celebrity like a Beach Boy, or someone, has a substance abuse problem they garner all sorts of sympathy. "Oh, poor man. So talented and so troubled. Let's overlook his alcoholism and drug abuse because he's so talented." But if it's just Ward Worker on the shop floor, he's just a fuckin drunk who can't control himself.
Sorry for the last couple of days – my email has its head up its ass again...
I live out here on the great plains and my innernet is basically two tin cans and a string...
anyway... today’s answer is (hope you get this)
I had to look it up, though...
I knew what Alan Brady’s brother-in-law looked like
and I remembered his name was Mel Cooley,
but I had totally forgotten the actor’s name.
And I totally didn’t remember that he was
ever on Leave it to Beaver. .
For a rather plain-looking, bald guy,
Richard Deacon was pretty damned successful in life, I’d say

As you all know the untimely passing of Terry was unexpected, even by
him. We all knew he had cancer but we all thought he had some years
left. So some of us who have worked closely with him over the years are
scrambling around trying to figure out what to do. My job, among other
things, is to establish communications with the Bartcop community and
provide email lists and groups for those who might put something
together. Those who want to play an active roll in something coming from

NBC News' Brian Williams was not, as he has previously claimed, aboard a U.S. Air Force helicopter that was hit by two rockets and grounded during the 2003 Iraq invasion.
In what was surely a moment of vindication for those who were actually aboard the grounded aircraft, the Nightly News anchor admitted Wednesday that the harrowing story he and NBC had been perpetuating since 2003 was false.
"I would not have chosen to make this mistake," Williams told the military publication Stars and Stripes, Wednesday. "I don't know what screwed up in my mind that caused me to conflate one aircraft with another."
The confession came after Williams reiterated his skewed version of events during a tribute to retired Command Sgt. Major Tim Terpak, who'd provided security for the same grounded helicopters Williams claimed to have been aboard, at a New York Rangers game last week.

Saudi Prince Al-Waleed Bin Talal's Kingdom Holding has reduced its 6.6% holding in NewsCorp to approximately 1%, selling $188 million worth of class B shares. The Prince, a longtime backer and ally of Rupert Murdoch, has maintained his 6.6% stake in 21st Century Fox, worth approximately $1.7 billion at current market prices. Al-Waleed is the second largest shareholder in Fox.
"The reduction of KHC's holding in NewsCorp has been decided in the context of a general portfolio review," said Prince Al-Waleed in a statement. "We remain firm believers in NewsCorp's competent management, led by CEO Robert Thomson, and are fully supportive of Rupert Murdoch and his family. Our investment in Twenty-First Century Fox, constitutes a solid foundation for our long standing relationship that we expect will endure."
21st Century Fox also maintains a 19% stake in the Prince's own media group Rotana, which he owns separately outside of Kingdom Holding.
He has had a turbulent week with the shuttering of his much-vaunted Al Arab TV channel after only one day on air. The channel officially blamed "technical reasons" for the outage although many commentators in the region believe it was shuttered following political pressure for the royal families in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.
The autobiography of "Little House on the Prairie" author Laura Ingalls Wilder has become a surprise publishing hit in America, with buyers rushing to snap up the candid account of pioneer life.
First published in November by the tiny South Dakota Historical Society Press, "Pioneer Girl" depicts an unglossed view of the 19th century Midwest, a marked departure from the bucolic imagery of the "Little House" series.
The book "is Laura Ingalls' very first draft before it was edited and romanticized," the press's director Nancy Tystad Koupal told AFP.
Whereas the series of 11 volumes paints a fairly innocent picture of pioneer times, Wilder's autobiography bears witness to a less glossy reality.

The McCarthys was always scheduled to go on hiatus before exhausting its 15-episode freshman run, following its Feb. 12 broadcast.

Sources tell TVLine The McCarthys technically is not yet cancelled and the four unaired episodes could see the light of day, though there is no plan at this time to broadcast them.
Paris Hilton's youngest brother was charged Tuesday with interfering with a flight crew on a trip from London during which authorities say he called other passengers peasants and made children cry with his death threats and profane tirades.
Conrad Hilton, 20, wearing a dark suit and shirt buttoned to the collar, shuffled into U.S. District Court in ankle chains with his hands manacled at his waist. A judge asked if he understood his rights and the charge, which was filed Monday and could carry a prison term of up to 20 years if Hilton is convicted.
Hilton's trouble on British Airways began moments after Flight 269 left the ground July 31. It continued for almost the entire 10 1/2-hour flight, according to a 17-page affidavit by FBI agent David Gates.
"I could get you all fired in five minutes. I know your boss," Hilton said in one of the document's few quotes that didn't include an expletive. "My father will pay this out, he has done it before. Dad paid $300,000 last time."
According to the affidavit, Hilton acknowledged calling other passengers "peasants" and said he had would have killed one flight attendant if another passenger hadn't calmed him down.

Up to 10 million gallons (38 million liters) of crude oil from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill has settled at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico, where it is threatening wildlife and marine ecosystems, according to a new study.
The finding helps solve the mystery of where the "missing" oil from the spill landed. Its location had eluded both the U.S. government and BP cleanup crews after the April 2010 disaster that caused about 200 million gallons (757 million liters) of crude oil to leak into the Gulf.
"This is going to affect the Gulf for years to come," Jeff Chanton, the study's lead researcher and a professor of chemical oceanography at Florida State University, said in a statement. "Fish will likely ingest contaminants because worms ingest the sediment, and fish eat the worms. It's a conduit for contamination into the food web."
After studying the samples, the researchers made a map of the areas affected by the spill. About 3,243 square miles (8,400 square km) are covered with oil from the Deepwater Horizon spill, they found.
The husband in a household featured on reality show "Sister Wives" has legally divorced one of the four women he lives with and married another, a spokesman for the show said on Wednesday.
Kody Brown and the four women he calls his spouses live in Nevada and have 17 children. Their life has been broadcast on the TLC cable channel since 2010. Legally, Brown is married to only one woman, even though he says all four are his wives.
While previously living in Utah, the family legally challenged the state's ban on consenting adults cohabiting in a marriage-like relationship when they are already legally wedded to someone else.
Brown and the women he calls spouses, Meri, Christine, Janelle and Robyn, are part of the Apostolic United Brethren, a Utah-based church that follows a plural marriage doctrine. Last season, the program followed their move from Utah to Las Vegas.
Three women are seen through a giant kaleidoscope as they look inside, as the exhibit is on display to demonstrate the geometric effect of filling space with equal triangles at the "Newton Park" interactive museum of science, during preparations for a performance for school children dedicated to the Russian Day of Science at the Museum Centre in Krasnoyarsk, Siberia, February 4, 2015. A group of young engineers, scientists and researchers, who specialize in chemistry, applied mathematics and physics, founded an interactive museum of science to conduct experiments aimed at the popularization of the exact sciences for pupils and their parents.

A defrocked Arctic priest was sentenced to 19 years in prison for dozens of horrendous sex offences against Inuit children, while his victims received a plea from the sentencing judge.
His crimes, committed between 1978 and 1982, included indecent assault, unlawful confinement, buggery, unlawful sexual intercourse and bestiality.
The victims include 12 boys, 10 girls and one dog. Most were between the ages of eight and 12, although they could have been as young as four and as old as 18.
Dejaeger has already served one five-year sentence on 11 counts of assaulting children in Baker Lake, Nunavut. In 1995, after he had served that sentence, he learned RCMP were about to charge him with the Igloolik offences and fled to his native Belgium.
For 16 years, he lived in homes maintained by the Oblates despite an international warrant for his arrest. Eventually, journalists revealed he was living in Belgium. He was returned to Canada in 2011.
California forecasters are prepping the state's northern cities for a switch from extreme drought to drenching rain and damaging winds starting tomorrow (Feb. 5).
An incoming atmospheric river could deliver at least 10 inches (25 centimeters) of rain in coastal and inland mountains, and 5 inches (13 cm) in valley areas, according to the National Weather Service. Atmospheric rivers are narrow currents of warm, moist air that transport huge amounts of water vapor from the tropics toward cooler latitudes. The water is nearly invisible, just concentrated vapor that later condenses into rain and snow. That happens when the current hits land and the air is lifted and cooled over mountains like California's Coast Ranges and Sierra Nevada.
The storm arriving Thursday will be one of the most closely watched atmospheric rivers in history, as scientists plan to study the weather pattern from the ocean, in the air and on land.
"This is unprecedented," said Marty Ralph, a meteorologist at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, California, and a leader of the field campaign. "It's a major effort in our field to understand the processes that provide water in our state."

A Vermont man who sometimes held his coat together with safety pins and had a long-time habit of foraging for firewood also had a knack for picking stocks - a talent that became public after his death when he bequeathed $6 million to his local library and hospital.
The investments made by Ronald Read, a former gas station employee and janitor who died in June at age 92, "grew substantially" over the years, said his attorney Laurie Rowell.
"He was unbelievably frugal," Rowell said Wednesday. When Read visited her office, "sometimes he parked so far away so he wouldn't have to pay the meter."
The bequest of $4.8 million to the Brattleboro Memorial Hospital and $1.2 million to the town's Brooks Memorial Library were the largest each institution has ever received. Read also made a number of smaller bequests.

Sanford Socolow, a longtime CBS News executive who was a right-hand man to anchor Walter Cronkite, has died. The Manhattan resident died at 86 at Lenox Hill Hospital because of complications from a long illness.
Socolow was an executive producer at the "CBS Evening News" when Cronkite was anchor. He was also a Washington bureau chief for CBS News and rose to vice-president there, supervising all hard news programming. He produced coverage of moon landings anchored by Cronkite and much of the network's Vietnam War coverage, including Morley Safer's 1965 report that showed U.S. Marines burning a Vietnamese village.
Socolow, known as "Sandy," was a producer at "60 Minutes" when he retired in the mid-1980s.
He died on Saturday, and is survived by two sons and a daughter.
