  5. I know nothing of the Orlando or even St Pete as far as theaters go, but as for Tampa itself found it best for me to go to the Citrus Park theater as it showed from noon on, and the price was reasonable... however, this is also because have no transportation other than the city buses... otherwise it would had been the Hyde Park Cinebistro, which is upscale, plays in the evening, costs double, and was the original independent theater to offer the movie here [it, or rather its predecessor, also opened We The Living when it played way back some years ago]...
  6. Agree that a half hour more would had taken care of much of the seeming discrepancies...

  12. The translation I have of Les Miserables is by Fahnestock & MacAfee, and is an unabridged translation [most are truncated ones], but also have it in French, as with the others of Hugo - Notre Dame De Paris, The Man Who Laughed, Toilers of the Sea, and Ninety-three [indeed, his works are one of the reasons for learning French and why keep my fingers in it enough to coarsely read it]... very true, those translations done in the 19th and early 20th century were full of prudery, whatever the languages [Aristophanes, for instance, was terribly bowdlerized], tho Constance Garnett's Russian one
  13. But of course, objectively, he is wrong again, second time round. A few "Jewish people" were palpably responsible for the execution of one of their own. The first time round was the sweeping assertion that Jews, qua Jews, were responsible - and forever would be. Thereby laying Original Sin on them. I suppose two wrongs make a right in some places... Tony it was Roman soldiers who pounded in the nails and put cousin Joshuah up on a cross. Crucifixion is not a form of capital punishment specified in Halachah (Jewish law). The forms provided in Jewish law are : stoning and strangulation. And

  18. "An additional problem is Rand's insistence that art must communicate without reference to "outside considerations," such as titles, artists' or composers' statements, etc. How much of your responses to music, Stephen, involve access to "outside considerations"? How much of Rand's did? In my experience, if you inform a person of what a piece of music is supposed to be "about," even with something as simple as a brief title, they tend to visualize what they were told to visualize. It's very hard for people to disregard "outside considerations" once exposed to them." [Jonathan] just where did Ra
  19. He was my fitness guru when in college - the hardest 15 minutes of the day, but worth it - and ye not had to get any fancy equipment either, as he used the kitchen chairs and so forth as the props needed... had hoped he'd make it to the century mark...
