1. William Shatner and the Art of Self-Reinvention

I was struck recently by a photo of William Shatner on the cover of USA Weekend magazine, which was enclosed in my local Sunday newspaper.  The caption beside Shatner’s photo read, “A panel of TV’s funniest stars, including William Shatner, reveals what will make you smile this season.”   William Shatner?  One of TV’s funniest stars?  When did that happen?

I first saw William Shatner in the 1958 film The Brothers Karamazov, which starred Yul Brynner, Maria Schell, Claire Bloom, Richard Basehart, Albert Salmi, and Lee J. Cobb.  If you haven’t seen it, I would recommend it highly.  Shatner played Alexi, the youngest Karamazov brother, who is a monk.  Throughout this drama of love, betrayal, crime, punishment, recklessness, loyalty, intrigue, and redemption, Shatner plays his role with the brooding intensity that befits a classically trained actor, which he was.

Trump scares the crap outta me. He attacks anyone or anything that makes sense. He is anti- everything and everyone that he doesn't agree with.

Hi Terry. I appreciate the thoughtful blog with clear bullet points about Trumps character deficiencies. Unfortunately the Clintons fare equally bad for different reasons, in my opinion. You've given me a lot to think about, however, and I will watch carefully and do more research. Thank you, as always, for your honest efforts to make us question and think.

Difficult time require responsible citizens to make decisions that are less than optimal.

"We face a terrible dilemna in this election year. There may be no good choices, but there is only one fight choice and it's not Donald Trump".

Bravo, T.R. Bacon!
