When someone gets in your way, you have to act. That’s the genius of Hitler. In a way, that makes him the greatest businessman of all.

And from the new White House spokeswoman in this NYTimes article:

Mr. Trump’s decision to call Mr. Reynolds is a reflection of what his supporters find appealing: his willingness to do something himself when he thinks it needs to be done.

A potential Hitler on our hands if we’re not vigilant, even though Tr*mp is hardly a great businessman.

This very British series is a police procedural set in Hastings, England, during World War II. But it’s also about Christopher Foyle (played by the great Michael Kitchen), a good cop and a great man, who always manages to do the right thing, even when bending the rules might seem like the expedient thing to do.

The upward gaze. Sigh.



The sidelong glance. Sigh.

In memory of Alan Howard, whose performance as Stephen Beck in Foyle’s War was among the show’s most poignant.






Bringing down Reginald Walker and son – just another of Foyle’s insignificant contributions to the war effort.
