Today's Picture Slot choice was difficult, but I went with Michael Rosenbaum as Lex Luthor from Smallville. I've watched several different versions of Superman, but I'll never forget Luthor's origin story from the comics when I was a kid. Superboy saved him from a fire at a lab, but blowing out the fire burned off Luthor's lovely head of hair which never grew back. This was the reason he was the most evil man on earth.

This is just one of the many reasons I have disliked DC Comics almost my entire life, not that this is any fault of Mr. Rosenbaum.

Many happy returns to all the living on the list and to the dead, thanks for all the memories

Predictor: Edgar Cayce, interpreting a stockbroker's dream in March 1929

Prediction: "Unless more stable banking conditions come to the relief, there will be a great disturbance in financial circles."

Reality: I'm reading books written by proponents of Cayce, and this is an example of what they consider a great success. The thing is, his readings quite often have a "maybe it will and maybe it won't" clause in them and this one didn't say "later this year". Still, here he is saying the stock market could go boom seven months before it did, so I'm giving him at least partial credit here.

Looking on day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE!

The regular schedule is interrupted by an exact date from Robert A. Heinlein. Yay!

  2. Future recommendation: Bruce McGill is a great "Oh-That-Guy" actor. Most people I've talked to have no idea who he is until I start naming roles in movies or TV shows they've seen, then they all remember him.

    1. A small confession. I got a picture of McGill from Babylon 5 and was ready to go with it before I decided the young Lex Luthor was more iconic.

      There are two favorite actors whose first few roles were when they were young, pretty and skinny, but no matter the waistline they do great work. The other one is Albert Finney.
