Mark Morford: Why the EPA director's security now costs $2 million (SF Gate)
This is but a simple acknowledgement: when you send death threats to the world and all who live on her, the world will, quite naturally, send them right back.

Josh Marshall: Total Quality Trumpism (TPM)
But there's something subtly different about Kelly compared to all the others who cozied up to Trump and saw their reputations and dignity destroyed through a deep inner weakness, desperation or lack of character - Christie, Pence, Tillerson, Priebus et al. Kelly's eyes appear wide open. His tie to Trump seems to be based on a deep commonality of belief and a desire to sand away the rough edges of Trump to ensure the core goals of Trumpism succeed.

Alison Flood: Were-sharks and Nazi leprechauns: the rise and fall of the horror paperback (The Guardian)
Since the late 1960s, dimestore horror novels have been spooking readers with all manner of kitschy occult. But evil babies and scary animals aside, some of these books contain strong social commentary - and very good writing.

Jack Pudwell: Satanic panic! How horror films and heavy metal made an unholy pact (The Guardian)
Since Mario Bava's 1963 film Black Sabbath inspired the Brummie band, metalheads and movie makers have shared a deal with the devil. We summon the filthy lyrics, moral panics and nostalgia of a genre that won't die.

Dave Simpson: From me to you - the pop stars who've broken the Beatles' chart records (The Guardian)
Niall Horan is the third former One Direction member to notch up a US solo No 1, matching Lennon, McCartney and Harrison. But Ringo and Paul can at least console themselves with the dozens of others they still hold

Emma Freud: What is your biggest regret? Here are people's devastatingly honest answers (The Guardian)
When I posed this question on Twitter, the stories poured out and patterns emerged. Real regrets are about bad choices in love, learning and loss, being held back by fear - and self-blame.

Throwback Thursday Trivia Question of the Day

What is the name of this Gilda Radner character?


Send your answer to Marty

Trivia Question from Yesterday

In Italy this cartoon character is named Paolino Paperino, and in Sweden his name is Kalle Anka. What is his name in the US?

       Donald Duck                                                      Source

Donald Duck (named Paolino Paperino) is also a very popular character in Italy, where new stories about him and Scrooge McDuck are hosted in the kids' weekly Topolino and the monthly Paperino.

Oddly enough, the Italian rendition of Donald Duck seldom, if ever, goes by his first name, having everyone, including his nephews, Daisy and Uncle Scrooge, address him as Paperino (his Italian surname).        Source

Donald Duck's name in Sweden is "Kalle Anka" (loosely translated as "Charlie Duck").        Source

Live-Action Remake

'The Lion King'

Beyonce, actor James Earl Jones and comedian John Oliver are joining the cast of Walt Disney's new live-action film version of the "The Lion King", the studio said.

Directed by Jon Favreau, the movie follows the storyline of the 1994 animated film, in which a young lion named Simba grows up on the African savanna after his uncle Scar conspires to ursurp his father Mufasa's place as king.

Jones reprises his role as Mufasa, while the young Simba is voiced by Donald Glover, who recently starred in "Solo: A Star Wars Story". Chiwetel Ejiofor, lead actor in "Twelve Years A Slave", takes the role of the villainous Scar.

Beyonce plays Simba's childhood friend and love interest Nala, while Golden Globe-winning actress Alfre Woodard voices the character of Simba's mother Sarabi.

Comedian Seth Rogen takes on the character of Simba's warthog friend Pumbaa, while Oliver plays Zazu, the hornbill adviser to Mufasa.

Dave Grohl As Dave Letterman

'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl experienced the best Halloween treat while guest-hosting on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Tuesday.

"I can't believe I get to dress up like David Letterman and interview Alice Cooper," Grohl declared.

But there they were, with Grohl disguised as Letterman in his Santa-like beard, and Cooper stained with fake blood for the ghoulish holiday.

The two discussed pre-concert rituals, which really served as an excuse for Cooper to throw knives at a photo of Matt Damon. Good to know that Kimmel's comical feud with the actor could carry on without him.

Cooper then related a spooky anecdote about the time he and Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry were coming off rehab stints and they stayed together in a New York house to write a song. But loud noises in the basement and other unexplained events cut their plans short.

Cringeworthy Password


President-for-now Trump's (R-Crooked) former campaign manager Paul Manafort turned himself in to the FBI on Monday after being charged with money laundering, tax fraud and conspiracy against the United States.

Manafort's alleged crimes have piqued the interest of almost everyone - except apparently Fox News - but especially computer security researchers who worked to uncover Manafort's James Bond-inspired email password: "bond007."

It wasn't hard for researchers to crack that case.

According to Business Insider, the not-so-subtle password hints Manafort set up for his Adobe account included "secret agent" and "James Bond." And since Manafort broke the cardinal rule of internet passwords - using the same one for multiple accounts - researchers were also able to access Manafort's Dropbox account using the same "bond007" password.

The puzzle first presented itself in February, after hackers broke into Manafort's daughter's iPhone and published about 300,000 of her alleged text messages to the dark web. Among those messages was Manafort's former email address, uncovered by a security researcher who goes by the online name Krypt3ia. (Manafort told Politico in February that hackers had successfully broken into his daughter's phone and confirmed the authenticity of some of the texts between him and her, but declined to comment on most of them.)

Hong Kong Auction

'Pink Promise'

An enormous oval-shaped diamond named the "Pink Promise" is set to be auctioned at Christie's in Hong Kong, with an eye-watering US$42 million price tag.

A 14.93-carat pink gemstone forms the centre-piece of the diamond-studded ring.

A Christie's spokesman said it was one of the most important pink diamonds ever to be sold because of its colour and clarity.

Earlier this year, a giant diamond named the "Pink Star" broke the world record for a gemstone sold at auction when it fetched $71.2 million at Sotheby's.

The 59.60-carat rock was sold to the city's Chow Tai Fook jewellery chain which has a strong presence across East Asia.

Bans Scientists From Independent Advisory Boards


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced on Tuesday it will bar certain scientists from serving on its independent advisory boards, a move critics say could open the way to more industry-friendly advisors on the panels.

The EPA barred scientists who have won agency-awarded grants in the past, billing the step as a way to preserve the independence and diversity of the boards, which provide the scientific input for agency decisions around pollution and climate change regulation.

Senator Tom Carper, the top Democrat on the Senate environment committee, said Pruitt's decision was part of an EPA effort to "delegitimize the work of nonpartisan scientists." Carper added, "this crusade endangers the health of every American, and it cannot be tolerated."

Pruitt signaled the move during a speech last week at the conservative Heritage Foundation, when he questioned the independence of scientists who have won past EPA research grants, and promised to "fix" the situation.

The advisory boards were created by Congress to serve as a check on EPA policies and research. They include the EPA Scientific Advisory Board, the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee, and the Board of Scientific Counselors.

'Keep Up The Tweeting'

Preet Bharara

Ousted U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara ribbed President-for-now Trump (R-Corrupt) on Twitter Tuesday, advising the president to keep tweeting as Trump was firing off angry missives about the charges against three of his former campaign officials: Paul Manafort, Rick Gates and George Papadopoulos.

"Keep up the tweeting. Seriously, keep it up," Bharara wrote.

He was responding to two tweets in which the president quoted "Paul Manaforts [sic] lawyer" dismissing the notion that the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin. Trump also suggested, once again, that the target of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation should be Democrats.

Bharara was the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, whose purview included Trump's hometown of New York City. Bharara was fired by the Justice Department in March after refusing to resign.

Though it's common for presidents to replace U.S. attorneys appointed by a predecessor of the opposite party, Bharara said Trump had agreed to keep him on after he visited the then president-elect at Trump Tower. Their relationship apparently changed.

Bharara's position on Trump's tweeting also has apparently changed. When Yahoo News asked him in June whether he would advise Trump to curb his freewheeling use of Twitter, Bharara passed on the opportunity.

JFK And Kennedy


It was probably a slip of the tongue, but Twitter was swift and unforgiving in its skewering of Sarah Huckabee Sanders after the White House press secretary referred to "JFK" and "Kennedy" as two different presidents during a Tuesday press briefing.

Speaking to reporters about White House Chief of Staff John Kelly's controversial comments about Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, Sanders, reading from notes, contended that "all of our leaders have flaws."

"Washington, Jefferson, JFK, Roosevelt, Kennedy. That doesn't diminish their contributions to our country. It certainly can't erase them from our history. And Gen. Kelly was simply making the point that just because history isn't perfect doesn't mean it's not our history," she said.

CNN White House reporter Jeremy Diamond noted that Sanders' JFK/Kennedy mistake was perhaps the least thing wrong with her defense of Kelly's statements.

CIA Investigation


The CIA investigated claims that a man who said he was Adolf Hitler was living in a community of ex-Nazis in the 1950s in Colombia, it has been revealed.

Declassified documents indicate that although agents did not take the claim seriously, they did receive a photo of the man who had a striking resemblance to the German dictator.

A former SS soldier, Phillip Citroen, approached CIA agents in 1954 and said that a man claming to be Hitler was living in the town of Tunja.

"According to Citroen, the Germans residing in Tunja follow this alleged Adolf Hitler with an idolatry of the Nazi past, addressing him as Elder Fuhrer and affording him the Nazi Salute and storm-trooper adulation."

Although the claims were written into an informal memo, the CIA dismissed it as a rumour.



'Unleashing' EPA Chief On 'Unsuspecting Public'

Professor Regrets

Scott Pruitt, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, is nothing if not lawyerly.

As Oklahoma's attorney general, he waged war against Obama-era environmental rules by arguing on technicalities. He billed himself as a "leading advocate against the EPA's activist agenda."

Since taking over the agency he sued more than a dozen times, he has defended the Trump administration's deregulatory campaign in complex legalese, arguing that the issue is not how best to protect the environment and public health, but how to adhere to his narrow interpretation of the EPA's mandate under the law. He even thanked a Time Magazine reporter for calling him "lawyerly" in an interview last month.

For that, Rex J. Zedalis, who taught Pruitt at the University of Tulsa's law school in the early 1990s, said he has "tossed and turned" for "countless nights."

"I confess regret for whatever small role I played in unleashing Administrator Pruitt on the unsuspecting public," Zedalis wrote in an Op-Ed published Monday in The Santa Fe New Mexican. "Surely I'm at least partially to blame for failing to nurture in him a deep regard for seeing law as an instrument for addressing real facts on the ground, not simply implementing a political ideology, regardless the facts."
