    Just as the majority of the population of any nation do not "do" much unless their lives are seriously impacted.
    Lose that overworked word hate. Most people do not get emotional enough to hate, they mostly don't care so long as they are left alone.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Turning one's head is doing something.

    Were there three episodes of this series? Or did one of the ones I recorded simply get mislabeled?

    It wasn't hard to see the relevance to today's debates in the story that Burns told. He's good at that.

    I saw the one from the beginning; in th e1930's, and I saw the one that ended with Jan 6. I must have missed second one, but the one I recorded that said it was the 2nd one was the same as the 3rd.

    I'll have to see if it comes on again. Thanks.
