An second forensic anthropologist, judge said he will only allow two expert witnesses, so they had a sidebar to decide that Warren could testify with a photograph or recreation of the duct tape with anatomical landmarks such as bottom of the teeth, osteometrics, base of the nose, edge of the orbits etc., are all used to determine where something was placed on skeletal remains. In this case, the jaw was articulated with the skull.
Warren came up with images that were scaled before superimposed. In other words, he made a DVD or a photo gallery with pictures that recreated where the duct tape would have been placed on Caylee before she died thus giving duct tape the distinction of murder weapon. The court saw the photos, TV or media did not. Judge Perry warned that if anyone in the court pulled out a camera it would be seized.
Animation was shown of Caylee to show that the duct tape could have covered both nose and mouth. If chloroform was used to sedate the child, then duct taped, then allowed to suffocate and put into a black plastic bag before or after death. Dr. G laid out that duct tape was the murder weapon by the prosecution made it official.

Who knew? I am not surprised. But this is not news just documented what most Americans already know—if it quacks like a liberal it probably is one i.e., a hidden one.
The book makes the case that TV industry executives, writers and producers use their clout to advance a liberal political agenda. The author bases his thesis on, among other things, 39 taped interviews that he’ll roll out piecemeal during the next three weeks.
The Hollywood Reporter obtained several of the not-yet-released clips. Each contains a snippet of an interview, usually some historical footage of the TV shows the interviewee was responsible for and, naturally, a plea to purchase the book, “Primetime Propaganda” by Ben Shapiro and published by Broad Side, an imprint of HarperCollins.
In one video, “Friends” co-creator Marta Kauffman says that when she cast Candace Gingrich-Jones, half-sister of Republican former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, as the minister of a lesbian wedding, “There was a bit of [a middle finger] in it to the right wing.”

People in my family watch it, don’t know why they like that crap, and have told me about some of the episodes. They preface their remarks with words like “I know you don’t like shows like that but…” and proceed to tell me about some of the antics. Jews obsession with the male phallus symbol among them. Sorry to say some black actors have also been apart of the show. Never watched it, never plan to. It shows you what Jews can get away with. It sounds like it should be an X-rated Hustler-type thing, but it’s not.
Before making her break in Hollywood, Hines worked as a waitress, television reporter and telephone operator, as well as a personal assistant to Rob Reiner when she moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting. Though Reiner did not play a critical role in her career, he would watch her shows when she began acting. Hines began her acting career by doing improvisational comedy at The Groundlings Theater. Among the people she studied with was Lisa Kudrow. She also learned to write comedy sketches, which served her well when working on Curb Your Enthusiasm, on HBO, as Larry David’s fictional wife, Cheryl. The show is written as retroscripting, in which the plot outlines are generally and loosely drawn and the individual actors improvise to create the dialogue.
“When the show first came out, people from Tallahassee thought, ‘Well, maybe Cheryl got married,’” she recalls of the show’s initial reception. “Sometimes, I do feel like I live two lives.”
Another source thinks that Bobby Jr and Cheryl are doing friends with benefits behind closed doors:
In the film, Kennedy helps Appalachian families defend their community after a coal-mining giant proposes to gouge into a mountain.
The night before, Kennedy was with Hines at the Royalton for the HBO doc “Bobby Fischer Against the World.” They were also seen posing for pictures together in Aspen in January and were reportedly on the slopes together in Deer Valley, Utah, in December. Meanwhile, we’ve reported that Hines has been helping his actress daughter, Kick Kennedy, with Hollywood introductions.

I told you so. I knew Kirstie would make it far. I don’t think she will take all but she went far anyway. I will have to watch the dances. I think she has a large fan base. Romeo and Chelsea were booted off before the semi-finals.
The dances were okay but Kirstie did put on a show and that’s why she is still in the game. Romeo is no longer afraid of dancing. He said he was. There goes the sterotype that black folks can dance.

The Kennedys was brought to TV by ReelzChannel who secured the 25 million-dollar production for 7 million dollars after THC (The History Channel ) and other networks turned it down. We don’t know what they were thinking but rumors support some Kennedy family were not so keen on this personal-angle mini series.
The Kennedys revolves around four principal players: Joe, Jack, Bobby and Jackie. Joseph P. Kennedy Sr. is the lens through which the story is told but Jack Kennedy its focus. Other than the family the set and the attention to detail star right along with the cast. And what a cast: Greg Kinnear (JFK), Tom Wilkinson (Joe Sr.), Barry Pepper (Bobby) and Katie Holmes as Jackie.
Barry Pepper wears more than just a wig to create an impeccable Bobby–he wore false teeth and a prosthetic nose. He also listened to his voice for hours on end to get it just right. But was it too much? I’ve seen better Bobbys.
The first two hours told in flashbacks wherein the character is “thinking” of pivotal events from the past: from Jack’s insistence that Joe pull strings to get him into the Navy because he would never pass the physical; to Jackie’s engagement and the marriage of the future first couple. It included a bit about Ambassador Kennedy whom President Roosevelt appointed to St. James Court (England). Joe loses the post because of a speech in which he supports Hitler and tells the audience to take him at his word. Politically: Jack’s first shaky speeches up to the presidential election. Joe is the architect but Bobby the engine that would get his brother elected.
There have been multiple retellings of the Kennedy drama and you might ask what’s the purpose of this one? According to the series’ creators they want to tell the story from a personal angle rather than a mere political one. That stance breeds controversy and drama and a good watch. So far I am a little underwhelmed by the production.
That family’s true story ranks up there with a medieval French royal family: The Valois/Medici. Catherine de Medici (queen of France) had Nostradamus to warn her that all her children would die young and bloody but there was no one to warn Rose Kennedy. And in tonight’s premiere we learn that not even Joe Kennedy warns his wife that Jack is lost at sea. Instead he buries it beneath an impervious veneer no one can penetrate.
The uneven emotional connections, sense of drama, history and purpose are never quite re-enacted by the principal actors. That’s a problem. Sunday was just the beginning it has 6 more hours to make the case for yet another Kennedy retelling.
Okay folks one less lefty, loser, Marxist-loving PC talking head on TV. David Broder (both parents Jewish) has died at age 81. This Jew made over 400 appearances on what I call “Meet the Jews” with David Gregory! This is incredible that Jews have to die before we don’t have to watch them on TV. Just discovered the Daily Kooks did not like this guy. He was fawning over Sarah Palin and was supposed to be a left wingnut. What a waste of time this old fart.
In 1990, a survey by Washingtonian magazine of the opinion-page editors of the largest 200 newspapers rated Broder as “Best Reporter,” “Hardest Working” and “Least Ideological” among 123 columnists.
Broder has been called “the high priest of political journalism” by author Timothy Crouse, “the unchallenged ‘dean’ of what many political reporters like to think is their ‘priesthood’ ” by U.S. News, and “probably the most respected and influential political journalist in the country” by columnist Richard Reeves. Esquire said Broder “has few challengers as the most influential political journalist in the country,” and media critic Ron Powers on CBS-TV said, “Broder is not famous like Peter Jennings, he’s not glamorous like Tom Brokaw, but underneath that brown suit there is a superman.”
from Wikipedia: David Salzer Broder (September 11, 1929 – March 9, 2011) was an American Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, author, television talk show pundit, and university lecturer. For half a century, Broder has reported on every presidential campaign, beginning with the 1960 Kennedy-Nixon race. He was born in Chicago Heights, Illinois, the son of Albert “Doc” Broder and Nina Salzer Broder.

Prairie Tale: A MemoirMelissa wrote a book too.
Her sister Sara Gilbert
Sara is not the reason for the split. She’s openly gay. The family name Gilbert is French and Jewish. Now, I understand that Melissa was adopted. I have to check on that. It may be that she was also adopted by a Jewish family and took their name because she is also Jewish.
Melissa Gilbert was adopted as a new-born baby by a well-known Hollywood family. Her parents were actors and her grandfather was a television writer. Her parents divorced when she was eight and her adoptive father died when she was 11
became one of the principal actors, playing Laura Ingalls, in the long-running television series Little House on the Prairie, whose male lead, Michael Landon, became a surrogate father-figure to her. She has a large number of other acting credits to her name.source: famous.adoption.com/famous/gilbert-melissa-ellen.html
The family also includes an adopted brother, Jonathan, now a New York stockbroker, who as a child also acted in Little House on the Prairie, playing the part of Willie Oleson; he also later acted with Melissa in The Miracle Worker. Their half-sister, Sara, who played Darlene in the sitcom Roseanne, is not adopted.
Melissa Gilbert (Jewish, adopted) was never cute, even after two nose jobs, she really ain’t cute or cuddly now with some horrific looking facelift…yuck. See link above. This worked as long as she was a little girl with pigtails, buck teeth, then braces, then a teen sorta cute, all on Little House on the Prairie series.
This series I watched every episode like 50 times was about a Christian family who tough it out on the prairie. But Michael Landon took it over. How did that happen exactly?
Anyway, that’s a pic of Tori Spelling. She and Melissa look alike to me. And only one person in Hollywood uglier than Melissa Gilbert and that’s Tori Spelling. Is that why Bruce is leaving? They are splitsville now. She did a few movies after Little House. People who knew the TV series said that her TV dad played by Michael Landon (Jewish, renamed himself) was so mean everyone on the set hated him. Funny because he played a nice Gentile dad, but he was always bringing in his Jewish buddies for roles also playing nice, genteel folks. Anyway, it’s over.
How do I know so much about people I never met? More later.

The Vision Quest Book One: The Age of Light (Vision Quest Book 1) (Bk. 1) Deborah Pratt's sf novel
This post adds to my other posts about beautiful biracial women (see Cheyenne Woods). Deborah Pratt see link below is older sister to Angela Pratt. I went to high school with Angie Pratt (Deborah is about 10 years older). I used to watch her on TV and I knew that was her sister because of the family resemblance and the name. But Angie never talked about her to me.
At the time Angie and her other sister were there. She was a junior and we were maybe freshmen. I can’t remember her other sister’s name but she was also very pretty. Because Deborah was older we never met her. She may have gone to Mercy not sure. The school is no more anyway.
In the BC interview (see link below) it is clear that Deborah introduced racial themes in her film work and writing whenever she could. And now she is onto universal or spiritual themes, just like myself. Something in the water in Chicago. Because while I am not into sf my life and book read like sf LOL.
I recall them well: 4 or 5 girls and one boy. They were all fair skinned ( but one was brown skin actually) with silky hair and pretty features. Since we were both attractive girls we were basically outcasts among other girls in high school. So we became pretty good friends. But I did something to sabotage (I was crazy in high school due to bad karma so forgive my youth) it and I think she moved to California anyway. Angela went to Oberlin College in Ohio but not sure if she got degree there.
I have no idea what she is doing now as we lost touch because of some crazy boyfriend drama. My next door neighbor was madly in love with her. But she went to California for the summer. And she wrote me a letter which I shared with him. Should not have done that. But she was seeing other people. He and I dated but really I did not like him. I think I was already involved with Kahil El Zabar at the time. Yes, I was kinda fast, no kidding, and I had my pick of the guys.
Deborah and Angii also had one brother maybe named Phillip like my brother. He was not as fair as they but did not look black.
Here’s what I wrote at answer: I went to high school with Angela Pratt who is Deborah Pratt‘s sister. Their dad was a dark skinned man like my father. Her dad looked south Indian. Her mom was very fair, looked like a Creole woman again just like my mom. We attended a Catholic high school with mostly Irish/Polish Catholic girls. For a while Angie and I were best friends. They are not white and never passed for white. In my book they are black women who can pass for white but are not.
Donald Bellisario (Serbian mom and Italian father)
In an interview with Sci-Fi Channel in the late 1990s, Bellisario said he was inspired to create Quantum Leap in 1988 after reading a novel about time travel. His service alongside John F. Kennedy‘s assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, was the basis for a two-hour (two-part in reruns) episode of Quantum Leap, “Lee Harvey Oswald” (the fifth season premiere, originally aired 22 September 1992). The episode supports the theory that Oswald carried out the assassination on his own, something Bellisario believed he was capable of after serving with him.
(Troian Avery Bellisario)
Finally, in this country unless you are Anglo Saxon meaning part British and/or part German then you are not considered white, but ethnic. So Troian being part black, Italian, Serbian and maybe West Indian and Anglo (which I think Deborah’s dad was) she is ethnic white since her dad is. But if you based it on the mother’s race then she would be black.
I am sure that Deborah considers herself black just as I do. From comments I read however, others don’t consider her black because she can pass for white or was passed as white in films or on TV just like Jennifer Beals (who also grew up in Chicago but I did not meet her) who is biracial. Per my other posts I have family members who look ethnic white but you know are black as far as this county is concerned.
But maybe the next racial reality will be this: if you look white (even ethnic) then you’re white. When I lived in Chicago and wore my hair straight and had no tan I was often mistaken for white. Down here though I am pretty brown due to the sun. I think someday it will come out about Chicago and how the most evolved black folks in the world ended up there. We were all some other race in past lives and we have come into this race to speed up its evolution and obviously that of the rest of the races as well. Oops HPB rambling again.
