You may have seen the headline about the lovely young blonde nurse found beaten and nearly frozen to death who later died in the hospital. If you read Fox that is, not sure if this has gotten coverage elsewhere. She was kicked and stomped around 40 times to the head and neck. I had that sneaking feeling when I first read about this, and yes it was the usual suspect:

MINORITY ARRESTED FOR LEAVING KIDS IN UNHEATED CAR FOR 45 MINUTES
DIfferent type of (attempted)infanticide

COUNCIL BLUFFS, IA (KWQC/Gray News) - An Iowa woman was arrested after police say she left her two small children alone in a car with the window partially down during subzero weather, KWQC reports.

Stephany Moses, 25, is charged with two counts of child endangerment after a concerned citizen called police Tuesday.

The mother allegedly left her two children, ages 2 and 4, alone in a car that was not running for around 45 minutes. The temperature at the time was 5 degrees with wind chills around minus 15.

"The vehicle the children had been left in was not running, unlocked, and the window was partially down," said police in a media release. "The children were only wearing light clothing."

Does Google (Alphabet) Own Twitter? Twitter Just Locked My Account for the Second Time in 33 Hours! And Google Locked Me Out Last Night!

By Nicholas Stix

Why do the following “instructions” mix Twit and Google?

I was blocked just minutes after complaining about Google’s blocking my search last night.

Yes, Google intervened in my search.

I was trying to find the obituary I’d written for John Cardinal O’Connor in 2000, but Google had disappeared it. I searched under “John Cardinal O’Connor” and “Nicholas Stix,” but it was nowhere to be found on Google. And after I’d searched, Google blocked me from searching again, asserting that my account had shown unusual activity,” the same language the apparatchiki at Facebook and Twitter use, when they politically attack you. But at a search engine?

As I’ve said for years, “algorithms” have nothing to do with this. Google has blacklists (or as I say, whitelists) and minders. It does everything possible to destroy people on its political Enemies List. And I am most definitely on it!

I then made the same search on Duck Duck Go, and my obituary was at the top of the page! A search engine with a better Web “spider” is worthless, if its staff conspires to gut it.

Has Google bought Twitter? When a Twitter minder (they have thousands of them) attacked me for the second time in 33 hours, at most a minute after I’d tweeted about the trouble it and Google were putting me through, I noticed something strange in the language of its block. It starts out referring to “Twitter Rules,” but then segues to speaking of Google three times, including Google’s “Privacy Policy.”

Google policies would only matter at Twitter if Google owned it. While Google (Alphabet) bought fragments of Twitter in January 2017, Twit is still officially an independent company. However, its harassing message below suggests otherwise.

Ralph Vaughn Williams: If You Want to Hear What Heaven Must Sound Like, Listen to The Lark Ascending

 

 

Re-posted by Nicholas Stix

This is the most lyrical music I’ve ever heard, this side of Scheherazade.

Passages and riffs sound familiar, such that I am convinced that Williams has been ripped off by many movie composers. Indeed, I first recall hearing his name in a comment at the Youtube posting of a suite of John Williams’ Oscar-nominated score to The Reivers.

The commenter said, to paraphrase, that Ralph Vaughn Williams’ (1872-1958) fields were among John Williams’ favorite for poaching, at least in the case of The Reivers.

My chief of research insists that he played this for me about a year ago.

John Cardinal O’Connor, 1920-2000

By Nicholas Stix
May 4, 2000 (?)

I am not a religious man, and yet I feel blessed. I got off a plane from then-West Germany at Kennedy Airport on August 26, 1985, less than seven months after John O’Connor had been promoted from bishop of Scranton to archbishop of New York. And during the past 15 years, Cardinal O’Connor has been perhaps the only unambiguously good thing about this dark, soulless place. That’s “was,” because as of 8:15 p.m. last night, John Cardinal O’Connor is no more.

Everyone could see it coming — first the brain tumor, and then after “treatment,” the increasing frailness, and the informal yet unmistakable goodbye of his recent public letter. Over a month ago, I had told my wife that I would write a letter to the cardinal, one that one of his assistants might read to him, as he could no longer see. But the letter did not write itself, and I didn’t write it, either.

I never met or spoke with, or corresponded with the man, and I have rarely felt a bond with, much less love for a public figure. And yet, I loved John Cardinal O’Connor. The bond was surely based on our commonalities: I’m a Jew and an agnostic, and he was a conservative Catholic fighter for the faith.

In the encomium-filled days to come, we must remember that this was a man whom Gloria Steinem described as one of the two worst things about New York, the other being AIDS.

But Gloria was an amateur, compared to SCREW magazine publisher, Al Goldstein. SCREW, for those of you unfamiliar with it, is a New York magazine that advertises prostitutes of all persuasions. I was looking not for love, but for money in the all the wrong places, seeking to sell ad space to some of the working girls for a non-sex- oriented publication whose entire profit margin was based on such ads. It turned out that the working girls were the world’s toughest sell. They were used to screwing people over, not to getting screwed.

In the midst of this er, publication, what should I see, but a huge photograph of the cardinal? Publisher Al Goldstein — I’m sure the words were his own — had put a fictional monologue into the cardinal’s mouth, something like, “After I’ve finished screwing an altar boy ... nothing gives me more pleasure than to run out to the street, and pick up the newest issue of SCREW.

Goldstein was obviously imitating Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt, who had once committed a notorious attack on the Rev. Jerry Falwell that landed him in court.

In an age of hype, it sounds banal to call Goldstein’s act an “outrage.” Indeed, what once became a First Amendment case that made it all the way to the Supreme Court, had by the end of the millennium become a commonplace unworthy of note. But this sort of attack was exactly what the word “outrage” was meant to apply to!

And yet, there was a perverse honor to the business. Al Goldstein had concentrated his sexual obsessions not on some prissy feminist who had slept her way to success, but on a man who bestrode New York like a collossus. Nietzsche liked to say, “Viele Feinde, viel Ehr.’” “Many enemies, much honor.” But unlike so many little, public people — celebrities, we call them — who live off the limelight, but cry boohoo, or sue or slug their critics, O’Connor was the kind of happy warrior who in an earlier age would have been called a hero. And whom I revere as a hero.

The cardinal ignored the pornographer to death.

O’Connor was always going into harm’s way, whether as a Navy chaplain for 27 years in Korea and Vietnam (he retired a rear admiral), or in New York with his stands against abortion, homosexuality, and the death penalty, and for more social programs. In all of the preceding cases, he was following church teachings, something that the most vocal religious, and even bishops, seemed to have utterly forgotten. If Reform Judaism long consisted (though not necessarily at the moment) of nothing but Enlightenment atheism plus matzo brei, many leaders of the Church of St. Peter seem to be Reform Jews, but without the matzo brei.

The cardinal’s most amazing personal characteristic was, that he didn’t hate his enemies. He didn’t hate homosexuals, he loved them, as brothers and sisters in Christ. He prayed for them, and asked them to pray for him, in turn. Had he hated them, he could have, would have (and I think, should have!) had them dealt with very harshly by New York’s Finest, during activists’ frequent trespasses into St. Patrick’s Cathedral. The activists were fond of desecrating the Host (stomping on communion wafers), and engaging in other obscene acts that you didn’t have to be a Catholic to abhor.

Recall too, that the NYPD is still a majority Catholic force — all those Irishmen and Italians and Puerto Ricans. They would have done the right thing, had the cardinal asked them to. Unlike his predecessor, Terence Cardinal Cooke, John Cardinal O’Connor not only met with gay activists, but made a point of shaking their hands, which Cooke’s secretary had pointedly refused to do, when he had met with them years earlier. And no gay activist — or anyone else — came close to what the cardinal did for AIDS patients, ministering to them in their last days, in church-run hospices.

I hadn’t known that he had a Ph.D. in political science, but I don’t hold it against him. O’Connor was so smart, you wouldn’t know that he’d spent so many years in academia. He had the sort of vital intellect that permitted him to quip spontaneously on the street, and not only let gut feelings enter into his thinking, which we all do, but do so openly.

While writing on the cardinal, journalist Nat Hentoff, a Jewish atheist who opposes abortion, developed a lasting friendship with him. Hentoff called Cardinal O’Connor, “the Genghis Khan of the Catholic Church.” However, in 1987, Hentoff crossed swords with his friend. After it had come out that sitting Austrian President and former UN Secretary General Kurt Waldheim had in fact been a Nazi, Pope John Paul II had given Waldheim a private audience at the Vatican. A livid Hentoff brought out the brickbats in his Village Voice column. In the second volume of his autobiography, Speaking Freely (the first volume was called, Boston Boy), Hentoff quoted from the personal letter O’Connor had sent him, in response:

“‘Dear Nat,

“‘Your Village Voice article disappointed me, not because of your criticism of the Waldheim-Pope episode, which was arguably criticizable, or your judging my remarks meaningless (although I would obviously prefer flagellation to being considered meaningless). Your article disappointed me because you cheapened it by including a shotgun attack on the Church .... beating the Pope over the head and shoulders for every conceivable offense (at least you didn’t berate him for being Polish), and generally clouding your thesis with a squid-like venom quite uncharacteristic of your normal writing.

“‘By way of your own account, I was aware of and sincerely pained by what you suffered at the hands of Catholics as the Boston Boy. In that account your sufferings were no less real and moved me to no less sadness because you chose to recount them in and with good humor. Whatever the demerits of the Waldheim-Pope affair, your relating it to your childhood came through to me as more vendetta than pain. Again uncharacteristic of your writing....

“‘You are a good man, a good friend, a good writer, and quite possibly a better Jew than you may have realized. I believe you missed a useful opportunity, and for that I’m sorry.”

Hentoff commented, “As angry as the cardinal had become, I was angrier. I had just begun to write a column for the Voice that would fully, fairly, and nastily focus that anger on O’Connor when another letter from him came. It was short: ‘Now that I have won that argument, let us proceed. You may recall how Belloc ends his Path to Rome: “So let us love one another and laugh. Time passes and we shall soon laugh no longer. Meanwhile, earnest men are at siege upon us all around. So let us laugh and suffer absurdities, for that is only to suffer one another.

Hentoff confessed, “I couldn’t help laughing at the boldness of his strategy of reconciliation, and I didn’t write a column answering his first letter.

Bold yet gentle, combative yet conciliatory. Those were but a few of the sides of the giant no longer in our midst. I don’t know how I’m going to swing this, but in memory of John Cardinal O’Connor, I am going to try and not give in to the hatred that I so often feel towards my enemies.
Rest in peace.

I always see your recommendations on the noir film genre but don't really have much knowledge about them. If you could recommend your top three I would surely appreciate it. In return I shall give you my top three commercial recommendations that I find humorous or clever:

1. ATT: “Stay in your lane, bro”;

2. Geico: “Humpday”; and

3. The Dollar Shave Club (set to a Sammy Davis Jr. song, I think).

As an aside, I’ve expressed my expertise to you once before on the subject, but I must confess that I think Alexandria Occasional-Cortex has a pretty sweet rack that almost absolves her of her shortcomings.

1. The Maltese Falcon (1941 version, starring Bogie): The father of Film Noir;

2. Double Indemnity (1944): Billy Wilder’s hard-boiled version of James M. Cain’s novel, starring Fred McMurray, playing gloriously against type, and Barbara Stanwyck; and

3. If The Third Man counts (1949?) as film noir, then it is definitely #3, even though it is ahead of both the previous pictures (#10) on my list of the greatest movies of all time. (There’s no femme fatale, but it is on lists of the greatest films noir.) It stars Joseph Cotten as a down-on-his-luck pulp fiction writer who visits an old friend in Vienna who had offered him a job, only to find the friend dead, and the postwar city full of shady characters claiming to have been his dear friends.

Re TV commercials: I've heard the phrase, "Stay in your lane," but am not sure if I saw the ad. "The dollar shave club" spot doesn't ring a bell. GEICO’s “Humpday” spot, however, is Hall of Fame stuff. Larsonesque, in taking a metaphor and making it concrete. GEICO ran it the other day. I recognized it immediately with the sound off.

If comedy still lives in America, it is in TV commercials!

As for your other observation, as a longtime scholar on the subject, I agree.

Just a day or two ago, I told my family that if a female politician is physically attractive, I cannot counter her arguments!

Racist Carjacker-Kidnapper-Rapist-Torturer-Murderer Lemaricus Davidson’s New Campaign to Thwart Justice (Knoxville Horror/Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom)

By David in TN
Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 7:37:00 P.M. EST

Here is the Knoxville News Sentinel story on Monday's session by Matt Lakin.

Our ex-friend Jamie "I am the Queen of Crime Writing" Satterfield was covering another trial.

"Monday marked the start of hearings set to last through much of the week as lawyers for Lemaricus Davidson seek to convince Senior judge Walter Kurtz that Davidson's 2009 trial was flawed and that the jury's verdict should be thrown out."

We were told at the time that since the defense insisted on a Knox County jury, they couldn't later appeal on the issue of getting an outside jury. Well, they are appealing on "change of venue jury," anyway.

From Monday's testimony: Davidson and his lawyers believed it would be impossible to get an "impartial" jury from the Knox County pool. Defense attorney Doug Trant testified "I told Lemaricus if we got a jury from Mars, and if they believed what the prosecutors said he did, they would give him the death penalty."

[N.S.: Didn’t Doug Trant just contradict the basis for a "change of venue jury"?]

The defense hoped it would be impossible to "find a dozen impartial jurors in Knox County - and secretly hoped not to, Trant suggested."

"I told (Davidson) if we were not able to seat a jury, he could not be convicted," Trant testified.

Davidson's lawyers hoped jury selection would be "interminable." The prosecution would be forced to offer Davidson a plea deal on a reduced charge. Then Knox County District Attorney General offered Davidson a guilty plea to “Life Without Parole," taking the death penalty off the table.

Davidson supposedly said he preferred death to life in prison.

After the trial ended up with a guilty verdict and death sentence, Davidson had "regrets."

"I remember when he got the death sentence, he cried," Trant said. "He said it was one thing to anticipate a death sentence and another to actually get it."

Surprise, surprise.

Trant also testified it was common knowledge among the Knox County legal community that the late Judge Richard Baumgartner was a heavy drug user.

Tuesday's session was more of the same.

The other defense attorney, David Eldridge, claimed the victim's families "helped fuel a mob atmosphere by being visibly emotional during the trial."

Although Jamie wasn't present, during the day she tweeted: "I wouldn't worry too much about this phase of Davidson's appeal. Post conviction appeals are rarely successful."

N.S.: Considering how untrustworthy Jamie has proved herself to be, that tweet gives me little solace.

Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 2:01:00 P.M. EST

One has to wonder how a lawyer could make the claim that the Knoxville horror case has gotten "too much publicity" with a straight face. How anybody could not feel their intelligence is being insulted by something so absurd?

Go out on the street right now and ask anybody, who does not live in the geographic region where the crime occurred if they know the names
“Channon Christian” and “Christopher Newsom”? Guarantee 99% will not know them. But 99% will know that the Covington kids are a bunch of racist punks. The Media have made sure of that.

Racist Monster Lemaricus Davidson Gets Yet Another Day in Court (Knoxville Horror News/Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom)

By David in TN
Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 12:59:00 A.M. EST

Today (Monday) was the first day of hearings for convicted Knoxville Horror killer Lemaricus Davidson's attempt to overturn his death sentence.

His lawyers raised a few arguments. They complain Davidson's trial got too much national publicity. When has it been on ABC 20/20, NBC Nightline, CBS 48 Hours? Answer, none.

One of his trial attorneys, Doug Trant, testified Davidson was offered a plea deal of "Life Without Parole," but Davidson insisted on going to trial.

Davidson's lawyers wanted to "point the finger at Eric Boyd" but were unable to. It was admitted at the trial that Davidson was of sound mind and knew what he was doing.

The hearing will continue tomorrow (Tuesday).

TCM's Film Noir of the Week goes on a month long hiatus in February, during TCM's 31 Days of Oscar.

Tomorrow night, Sunday, January 27, TCM will have a special Noir Double feature. At 8 p.m. ET. Act of Violence (1949), and at 9:45 pm ET, In a Lonely Place.

Our friend Eddie Muller will take Ben Mankiewicz's place as host for these two films. Act of Violence stars Van Heflin as a former bomber pilot with a dark secret, directed by Fred Zinneman. In a Lonely Place stars Humphrey Bogart. This film is notable for Bogart playing the character most like his real life self he ever played.

Eddie Muller has said In a Lonely Place is his favorite film noir.


Orwellian Editorial in the Dallas Morning News Opposes Accurate Census Count, but Asserts the Opposite

By A Texas Reader
Mon, Jan 28, 2019 9:32 a.m.

As a nation, we shouldn't erect barriers to obtaining the most accurate census count possible. That's why we applaud a federal judge's ruling to block the Trump administration from adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census form.




A citizenship question on the next census form could cost Texas dearly | Editorials | Dallas News

In the current political climate over immigration, the citizenship question is a self-defeating hurdle to obtaining an accurate count. The risk is that this question could cause people to refuse ...

Warren Tries a New Role

By Jesse Mossman
Sun, Jan 27, 2019 8:17 p.m.

We all know the nursery rhyme (well maybe not the current generation of vidiots who know nothing but video games):

Rich Man, Poor Man,
Beggar Man, Thief,
Doctor, Lawyer,
Indian Chief.

Elizabeth Warren was a Lawyer who claimed to be an Indian. Her claim helped her get a job at Harvard and made her a Rich woman (at least compared to most Americans, her Harvard salary was outrageously high--"..when Warren was a professor at Harvard University, she was paid nearly $400,000 to teach a single class.").

Now she is going for Thief. She doesn't just want just high taxes, she wants to actually confiscate (i.e. STEAL) wealth. Of course, the wealth she wants to confiscate starts at a higher figure than her own considerable fortune (14 million dollars?).

I'm sure this sounds like a great idea to all the young socialists who are ignorant of history.

True Crime: If You were Obsessed with Your Grandson and Wanted Sole Custody of Him, How Far Would You be Willing to Go? “Concrete Alibi” (Video; Only 22 Minutes!)

 


Above and below: Murder victim Karyn Gail Hearn Slover, 27 Oct 1972-Sept 27, 1996

 

 

Re-posted by Nicholas Stix


Forensic Files - Season 11, Ep 8: “Concrete Alibi”: Narrated by the Late, Great, Peter Thomas (June 28, 1924 – April 30, 2016)
 


 

Karyn Hearn Slover’s ex-husband and parents were all convicted of first-degree murder on May 17, 2002. However, Michael Slover Sr. and Michael Slover Jr. were each sentenced to only 65 years, and Jeannette Slover was sentenced to a mere 60 years. And since these were state sentences, each killer will only do from one-third to one-half of his sentence.

A Decatur (IL) Herald-Review report from 2014, on the Slovers’ machinations.

The killers demanded and got a court order permitting DNA testing, where in 1998, police had only engaged in fingerprint testing. (Advanced DNA testing reportedly was not then available.)

This ruse was to try—with the help of the murderer’s best friend, “The Innocence Project”—and get an undeserved re-trial, at which they would hope for at least one stupid or evil juror who would hang the jury, and at most 12 fools who would fall for “reasonable doubt,” and spring them. (Or several fools or evilists who would wear down and intimidate one reasonable juror after another, until they all voted to acquit.) Next thing you know, the killers would be suing the state of Illinois for millions for “false imprisonment.” (See “The Central Park Five.”)
