    I mean, so what?  And really, Annette Funicello and Jonathan Winters lumped in?  Are you like, 19?  Wasn't JW a sort of comedic leader in his day?

    Your comment sucks in multiple ways.

    •  Yeah, completely not getting this front pager. (0+ / 0-)

      Is there some sort of ax to grind agenda on this Midday Open Thread that I wasn't aware of?

      She rips a movie that's specifically about a the breaking of the color barrier in baseball, a movie about Branch Rickey and about Robinson, in that particular point in time.  It wasn't a biography of Jackie Robinson, if it was, it wouldn't be titled "42", which is just the baseball part of his life.

      What possible reason would someone rip a movie about Jackie Robinson's entry into Major League Baseball?  Other than being pissed off that the movie wasn't about something else, like Jackie Robinson's later life experiences or reflections on his life?

      And then to damn with faint praise Funnicelo and Winters while simultaneously giving a nice condescending middle finger to "middle-America", which reads a lot like "white-America" to this reader, my question is, wtf Kos Front Page?
