Re: “Teachers (and Administrators) in TV and Film: The Final Episode (though there's always the possibility of a sequel)

Looks like your filmography is a work in progess, sir. May I nominate the 1988 film Stand And Deliver, starring Edward James Olmos to your list? Or does it fail to qualify due to being based on the true story of math teacher Jaime Escalante?

I don't see Dead Poets Society (1989) up there either.

Although these films do not invalidate your hypothesis, an all-inclusive list with a longer timeline would improve your data set. Since your Editor evidently finds enough merit in your argument to spend ink on it, perhaps the Weekly's film critics can be put to good use here.

Re: “Wired: A-10 Warthog "Is Ruthlessly Effective, and the Grunts on the Ground Absolutely Love It Because It Keeps Them Safe"

Why don't the Air Force just transfer the A-10 and the entire ground support misdion to the Army?

That would fix everything.

Re: “How Did a Trampoline Park Open Here Without Someone Telling Me?


Surely gravity will help the gliders and blimps maintain different altitudes.

Re: “Editor's Note

I hope you merely forgot to make the Nintzel masterpiece you cite accessible to the reader by using a live link in your online versions of this Editors Note.

Re: “Gabby Airs New Ad Targeting Martha McSally

My objection to McSally is simple - if her military career and leadership were so stellar why was she never promoted to General? Other female pilots of her generation now wear stars so it's not entirely chauvinism.

I'm thinking the Air Force found her unfit to make larger strategic judgments. Effective killing is not strategic planning. I'd guess her adamant flouting of local Saudi dress customs and decorum during the Desert Storm aroused exactly the kind of Islamic anti-Americanism her superiors warned against. We now know know the results of the writings of Osama Bin Laden on this subject.

The Middle East has a deep bench of homicidal maniacs, and adding McSally's inability to foresee consequences to an already warhungry House majority could easily make this war last another two or three generations

Re: “A Hologram Was the Musical Guest on Letterman Last Night, So Say Goodbye to Music Forever

Or, perhaps:
Read your William, Gibson.

More to the point, artificial journalists are already among us (see San Jose Mercury, can Tucson Weekly be far behind?).
