If you don't like it then don't watch....then stop bringing up Fox News when you liberals are backedRead More into a corner or rush Limbaugh. These are not suppose to be political shows yet for some reason they choose to put a man in that slot with a political agenda. Bad choice in my opinion.

Colbert will have no political agenda on The Late Show. Maybe you should read more about the actualRead More man instead of making comments based off if a 'character' that he plays on a completely different kind of TV show.

WMS826- dont blame cbs and colbert, blame the almighty "Free Market". CBS makes money byRead More having good ratings. Colbert has a proven track record of winning awards and getting good ratings. If you "conservatives" produced a better and more entertaining product than maybe a conservative leaning host would have been chosen as a replacement. I'm a libertarian who enjoys colbert, he often mocks republicans but also mocks democrats and obama. he spent weeks making fun of obama, the aca roll out, and nsa spying. unlike fox news who will slam democrats but never go against "their guys" even when they screw up. colbert also admits he is a comedian unlike fox news who pretend to be "fair and Balanced" news. here's the problem with current republicans: they love the free market accept when it works against them- colbert has good ratings and is chosen as a replacement, republicans cry "war on consevative values" instead of admitting colbert just puts out a more entertaining product. they have an imaginary war on christians and thinks christianity belongs in public schools, but if muslim budhism or any other beliefs are mentioned in schools they are the 1st to complain. christian parents recently sued a school for teaching kids yoga they got all hot and bothered when bloomberg tried to limit soda sizes to help with our obesity problem. they said its our choice as americans to drink as much soda as we want even though it has harmful health effects, however they will fight other peoples freedom to smoke marijuana. they believe in the "trickle down" effect for the rich (even though they keep a lot of the money in off shore banks) to help the economy, however dont believe if you raise minimum wage it will have any type of trickle down effect (that money would not be banked over seas it would go right back in to the economy).

Snookie recenlty appeared in the TV series "Supernatural" and also on a WWE wrestlingRead More event where she did a triple back flip off the ropes so she seems to be trying all different venues for exposure.

I HOPE THERESA AND JOE DON'T GET ANY JAIL TIME...........THINK OF THE CHILDREN. THEY HAVE BEENRead More PUNISHED ENOUGH BECAUSE OF THE BAD CHOICES THEIR PARENTS MADE............ ORRR DOES THIS ALL HAVE TO DO WITH ITALIANS AND JERSEY?

It has to do with crime. We don't let criminals off because they have children at home. They screwedRead More their kids, not the courts. The rest of your post isn't worth addressing.

Mariea, where are your brains these two idiots chose to break the law and did not think of of thereRead More children .Send them to jail and then deport the convicted felon.
Michael B. Jordan discussing his portrayl of Johnny Storm / CineMovie via youtu.be/NRzKI2-T1Yg
Lincoln Farquharson March 21, 2014 at 12:15 pm
I feel like I will be repeating what's been said, but I think it was foolish to cast a blackRead More character as Johnny Storm. How will they explain his sister being white? and regardless of how they explain it, the dynamics of their relationship may be lost to the viewer. They are taking a big risk there. With that said, had they cast the Thing as black or possibly even Reed Richards, you would get no argument from me. It's not that the characters were originally drawn white or black because that decision is personal bias on the past of the artist and the economics of what image will sell, but it is based on their personal character. Not other race can play Malcolm X or Robert Kennedy or Mahatma Gandhi, because their race is part of what made them historical figures. A white person, as another example, can not play Storm or Black Panther, but one could play Bishop.
Hookerman March 21, 2014 at 12:52 pm
Lincoln, there is a big difference between an actual person and a fictional character. CharactersRead More are often portrayed by actors whose physical appearance is much different from that described in literature. For example; in the book One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, the character of Randall McMurphy was described as being tall, with thick red hair. Somehow, people had no problem accepting the portrayal of Jack Nicholson, who is short with thin brown hair.
Lincoln Farquharson March 21, 2014 at 05:26 pm
It's about depiction. Real or fake. Comics are visual books, so a character isn't described. If weRead More want to be strict, most of the real life depictions of comic book characters are wrong (Rogue, Iceman, Magneto). Since we apparently are not going for exact replicas, we have artistic license to change a few details. Race plays a part in the character development and ultimately the storyline of several characters and comics. You can't change the race for those characters without affecting everything else (Storm, Black Panther). Other characters were simply drawn that way because, as I said, artist bias and marketability (Nick Fury, Reed Richards). For this particular case, the Storms are brother and sister and the stories and development of character is based largely in part on that relationship. If the race of one changes, without proper explanation, then the race of the other should change. Throwing a black character in the movie just for sake of doing it without respect to canon or continuity is disrespectful to fans and unimaginative. Had Reed Richards or Ben Grimm been made black for this movie, no arguments can be made.

Hi Patch Readers, Our "Opening Night" performance of "Thoroughly Modern Millie"Read More went great last night. We would love to have you play your part as "Audience Members". I promise you that you will enjoy yourself.

You can see a list of these other restaurants that are members of the Moorestown Business Association at www.MoorestownBusiness.com. You can buy tickets to this great musical (with our live 15-piece orchestra!) at www.MoorestownTheaterCompany.org (or at the door). "Community Theater only survives with Community Support!" Thanks, and see you at the show! Mark Morgan Producing Artistic Director, Moorestown Theater Company President, Moorestown Business Association

Not being smart but is it a good idea that the MBA promote cinnaminson orgs? Or have those supportRead More cinnaminson businesses during these events by mtc rather than having it in Moorestown and doing that? If the MBA and MTC are indirectly doing this then why not have performances at st Charles or OLPH in Maple shade? I'm sure people will cater to the local businesses in those towns too.

Hi Moorestown Patch Readers, Our "Scenes & Songs" is going to be a very eclectic nightRead More of theater! For just $10, you will see scenes and songs performed from shows that MTC has never produced. Director Tom McHale and our 37-member cast will surely entertain you. Please come out and support your community theater. And make reservations in a Moorestown restaurant for a great meal before or after one of the shows. Thanks!

I think it would have been nice to keep it to Moorestown people. Why is Amy Belgard involved butRead More Stacey Jordan is not? I hope Stacey was asked, it is the MOORESTOWN Theater Company after all! While I think it's nice they are getting involved, I wish it wasn't so political. Would have been nice to mix the Democrats and Republicans instead of having a "Democrat" cast and "Republican" cast like I've seen on the Moorestown Theater Company posters. Politicians should be involved, but politics should not.
