Woah...hey now...

I thought they were popular in Germany.


Oh yes, they are. I don't mind them, tbh. I like their first album and, of course, Mark Knopfler played lead guitar on Time Out of Mind on "Gaucho". An arduous recording session, iirc.

But no more Walk of Life, please.

This could be posted in many different theads:

Paula Deen kills Trayvon Martin. That's the premise of an upcoming episode of the long-running NBC drama Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. The series doesn't return for its 15th season until September 25, but news of its third episode has already generated some buzz—and whipped right wingers into a frenzy.

According to Warren Leight, the show's executive producer, the upcoming episode is about "a very high-profile celebrity woman chef who thought she was being pursued by a rapist and [when she] turned around it was a teenager." The chef is a fictionalized version of Paula Deen, the Savannah, Georgia-based cooking personality and author who was recently embroiled in a racial discrimination and sexual harassment lawsuit. The minor she fatally shoots is clearly inspired by Trayvon Martin.

Same here. Although I do not disapprove of whipping right-wingers into a frenzy.

Maybe the TV/Motion picture industry could get Michael Moore involved as well.

As if there aren't enough real events coming up in the next few weeks, like the Vote on the Syrian conflict, Fed Gov. appointment confirmation, Debt Ceiling, etc...
