Condolences to the families and friends of the dead in Munich. It seems this is at least a weekly event, now, though.
Just watched a film ‘Shout at the Devil’ with Lee Marvin and Roger Moore, set in Africa in WWI. It was a pretty good action/adventure with a bit of comedy thrown in, but that kind of clashed. You can’t have comedy when a baby’s been killed.
Anyway, I was struck by the casual racism of it. I thought “Damn, how old is this film?” thinking really, even for the 60s, yukking it up when Roger Moore smears mud on his face to pass for black, like the 101 Dalmations rolling in the coal to disguise themselves as Labradors, feels a little bit tacky. So, I looked it up: 1976. I was surprised.
There’s a town in Colorado where they’ve found THC in the public drinking water, and authorities are freaking out, telling people to not drink water and not take baths. Chill,non-stoner people. If you drink some water out of the tap, it won’t kill you. Not even close.
I guess it will work out O.K., though. Some of the more inhibited citizens will, indeed, stick to bottled water and take a day off personal hygiene, while all the hippies are filling their bathtubs, and kicking back glass after glass of the straight from the tap stuff, trying to take advantage of the free buzz. As far as water usage goes, it will even out.
