You’re an idiot.
News organizations have a First Amendment right to exercise editorial judgment however they see fit. Especially since right-to-reply and other fairness rules were eliminated in the 1970s and 1980s. See Tornillo v. Miami Herald among others.
American Christianity is downright sociopathic. If you wrong someone, you don’t have to make amends. You don’t have to apologize. You don’t even have to stop doing it, because we’re all sinners anyway. You just have to request forgiveness from your imaginary friend, in a ritual that no one else has to see.
You probably think the US government needs a warrant if they want to dig through your old emails, texts, and instant messages, right? Well, you’re wrong!
I too am a C3PO fan. He shouldn’t be as good a character as he is. He’s a jokey concept - a cowardly robot in a world of fearless living things - and a writing crutch for any scene that needs translation or exposition.

I think so too. I’ve seen some making-of documentaries from when the movie was released (before Jar Jar acquired his hatedom), and you can tell George Lucas and Ahmed Best really put a lot of thought into this character. Lucas was very concerned about a fully-CGI main character being believable. He said something like… Read more
And it went on for EVER. I swear that one scene took five minutes. Maybe they were going for a meta-joke by making the moviegoers wait for Star Wars while the high-strung animal cop character was waiting for the sloth. But all it did was piss me straight off.
I’ll agree with you that the sequel has a clearer and scarier villain. But give Walter Peck his due. He only appears in the second act of the movie, but he drives the conflict. Until then, we’ve only seen the Ghostbusters go into business, say funny things, and hint at a coming apocalypse. Peck causes the apocalypse,… Read more
Ghostbusters has a charismatic, terrifying villain: Walter Peck.
