Whitney’s dead? Didn’t see that one coming

You’d think based on the coverage that she may have been one maybe President of the United States or someone equally just as important. From 1986 to 1997 she was one of best known American Vocalist’s in the world, but her run ended went she started having issues with drug abuse after meeting Bobby Brown. Since then she’s been kind of public train wreck which is which is kind of what lead to her dead in a bathtub in fancy Beverly Hills Hotel. The most disturbing thing is that not a single person that has spoken honestly about her is that not one was surprised she is dead, expect Nancy Grace whom is claiming she was murdered, but she is batshit crazy.

Bangkok bombers targeted Israeli diplomats, Thai police official says

This Just In

A group that set off explosions in Bangkok this week intended to strike Israeli diplomats, a Thai police official said, intensifying a heated argument between Israel and Iran about a string of bombings in different countries.

Israel and Iran have traded accusations over attacks in Thailand, India and Georgia, with Israel pointing fingers at Tehran and the Iranian regime calling such claims a “prelude” to an Israeli attack.

“I can tell you that the target of the operation of this group is specifically aimed at Israeli diplomats,” Police Gen. Priewpan Damapong said late Wednesday in an interview with CNN affiliate Channel 3.

His comments came after a senior Thai security official had drawn a tentative link between the Bangkok blasts and the attacks aimed at Israeli officials in India and Georgia, saying the materials used in the explosive devices were similar.

Two men allegedly involved in the Bangkok blasts have…

The new racism

Jason Whitlock ‘Congratulates’ Jeremy Lin With Racist Tweet – Bay Bridge Banter – SB Nation Bay Area.

*Some lucky lady in NYC is gonna feel a couple inches of pain tonight.” Some how this a racist statement. Really now, we can’t make jokes about penis size? It’s funny that we in this country that values freedom is now turned into a nation of super judgmental assholes. Now funny that the biggest offenders is the same as it always was-whites. Now it’s not the traditional un educated group that it’s always been, but highly educated ones also. Now it’s not there are actually racist is that they have diced that they have to protect everyone and ANYTHING they decide might offend anyone is racist attack. Now this group seems to have in for Blacks, see recent attacks on Sports Columnist Jason Whitlock, Comedian Tracy Morgan, and Basketball Player Kobe Bryant. Now problem is that some of the things there accused of doing are not racist attacks but just observations. 

Judy Holiday the forgotten

She is one of Hollywood’s great forgotten actresses, due to fact she died young, but while alive she had spectacular career. During her short reign she won a Oscar, Golden  and Tony. She appeared and or starred in movies such as “Adam’s Rib“, “It Should happen to you” and created the role of her career as Billie Dawn the dim witted blonde that helps take a Mob Boss, on Broadway the in the Movie “Born Yesterday”. She co-starred with Katherine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, Broadrick Crawford, Peter Lawford, Dean Martin and Jack Lemon.   While Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe are more celebrated Holiday’s career far surpasses there’s, not bad for ‘dumb blonde’.

A New York girl, born and raised, Judith Tuvim was the only child of parents Abe Tuvimand Helen. In school, she excelled in academics, winning several awards for her skills as a writer. While in her early teens, she developed what would become a life-long love for theater. In 1938, she made her professional debut as part of a nightclub act called “The Revuers”. Her partners in the act included aspiring playwrights Betty Comdenand Adolph Green. The Revuers had a loyal following and even their own weekly radio show on NBC. In 1944, The Revuers broke up after a failed attempt to break into films. Judith adopted the stage name of “Judy Holliday” as part of a “makeover” process that was orchestrated by 20th Century Fox. Judy’s breakthrough performance would come on the stage however, in the 1945 play “Kiss Them For Me”. She followed it up in 1946, with the lead role of “Billie Dawn” in Garson Kanin’s smash hit “Born Yesterday”. She married classical musician ‘David Oppenheim’ in January of 1948. Later, they would have a son named Jonathan, born in November of 1952. In 1950, Judy reprised her hit stage role in the film version of Born Yesterday (1950) for Columbia Studios. Her hysterical and endearing portrayal of dumb blonde Billie Dawn earned her an upset win at the Academy Awards, beating out Bette Davis and Gloria Swanson for the best actress Oscar. Her new-found fame made her a prime target for the Communist witch hunters of the early 1950s. She became the subject of a secret F.B.I. investigation and a victim of “blacklisting”. She was later cleared of any serious wrong-doing after testifying before the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee, but by then the damage to her career had already been done. The quality roles befitting an Oscar winning actress did not come her way. She was forced to star in lesser roles that were often just flat variations of the Billie Dawn character. It’s a testament to her acting abilities that she was able to rise above the material and give solid performances time and time again. When not lighting up the silver screen, Judy divided her time between the stage and making records. She was a unique and gifted performer whose life and career were cut tragically short when she lost her 5 year battle with cancer in June of 1965.

Not bad for a girl
