My worse suspicions have been confirmed. We've thrown out the baby instead of the bathwater. The real troll is still here. :-|

I thought it was some nickname for Liz Taylor...

She broke a lot of barriers, not just with that beautiful face of hers, but with movies that pushed the boundaries like Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and Cat on a Hot Ti Roof and Suddenly Last Summer. And of course all the work she did on to raise awareness on HIV/AIDS. She was a class act.

Yes, she was definitely in a class of her own. I had the pleasure of meeting her once at Robert Mitchum's farm on the Eastern Shore of Maryland around the Xmas season 47 years ago when I was 16 I think (I had my drivers license and was still in school so it had to be around '63~'65) I went to school with Mitchum's youngest son, Chris. I used to hunt deer on their farm (Belmont Farms). My best friend's farm and Belmont Farms shared a common border.

She was a beautiful lady with a checkered life no doubt. May she rest in peace.

He would. He also conveniently left himself out of the picture even though he's attended one of them as well. :wink:

Call it nostalgia (or boredom).

I feel as if I'm getting very old wondering if there is any comedy these days that does not involve sex or swearing. I'm not saying I cannot enjoy the latter, it just seems comedy without these elements is rather a thing of the past. I wonder why.

Well, The IT Crowd is pretty enjoyable. I may have a bias, though, being a code monkey and all.
