I saw his interview with Diane Sawyer last night. They showed video of
him flying his sweet P-51. It's a really nice one. It has "Kiss Me
Kate" painted on the nose. He had Diane Sawyer in the back seat. He
also had two other warbirds escorting and filming him. One of them was
a british warbird, I think a Sea Fury, and the other might have been
another p-51. I definitely like his taste in planes better than John
Travolta's.



To bad they let insane people fly planes. I guess if you got enough
money............



What do you mean? Scientology? It's beyond me how anyone can belive in
that.


Millions believe in neoconservativism. Which is crazier?

Oh well - I'm going back to drinking my

beer and watching movies.

I like documentaries like "History of The World Part One" and "Blazing
Saddles."


Don't forget "The Green Berets" and "The Sands of Iwo Jima."

Stoicism makes sense to me, as does pre-Christianity (Zoroastrianism).
What I would really like to do is read an accurate Bible translation
from before the Europeans got to meddling with it. BAR periodically
prints short excerpts and the differences between 2nd century texts and
the KJV versions are fascinating and tell more about modern inhibitions
than anything else.

Absolutely anything can become a religion depending on the person, or
group.

You might as well say that a head doctor is a priest. Just read that
DIANETICS book. I got a third of a way through and threw it in the trash.


I'll pass. :-))

....before the -51, it was a Pitts S-2B, "Sweet Nick," named for his
then-wife, the lovely Ms. Kidman. He also has a G-V stashed at Santa
Monica, as well. Lord only knows who he named THAT after...

Scientology was created as the result of a "bar bet" between two
science fiction authors: L. Ron Hubbard and Robert A. Heinlein.
Elron said that he could invent a bull**** religious package and sell
it, based on voodoo science. RAH alluded that folks were gullible, but
not that gullible.

RAH wrote _Stranger in a Strange Land_ and Elron invented Scientology.
They high-fived each other for the rest of their lives.

In Cruisey's defense, I have to say that he's always shown himself to
be immensely generous to strangers. Dropping $5K into a donation jar
for a poor kid in a hospital or paying for a fancy dinner for kids on
the way to the prom (he did that in Memphis while filming The Firm way
back when), I'll accept the weirdness if it's tempered by good
intentions. And if he's keeping a P-51 in the air, that's definitely
good intentions.

He at least has that. Didn't he once jump into a lake to save some
drowning kids? As opposed to Sean Penn who goes to New Orleans to
rescue folks with a leaking boat full of entourage. I still don't like
actors, though.............

Not exactly.

Hubbard and a publisher, Campbell, made a bar bet.

Hubbard won.
