One of the tropes in the earlier days of Siskel and Ebert was that they suppossedly hated one another. I always took it more as competitiors who end up as a team, as when the started hosting Sneak Previews on PBS (which later became At The Movies, later Siskel & Ebert on commercial TV). So it was perfect that they played parody versions of themselves in a before-its-time animated show about a movie critic, "The Critic" (1994-95, voiced by Jon Lovitz). They fight, almost kill each other, both try to make the Critic their new reviewing partner, which all goes badly until they realize they have a good act going. While singing to each other. Think I'm making this up? Watch the video: (and RIP to both Roger Ebert & Gene Siskel, who actually critqued movies, not flacked them)
Once again, Foot of Ten Elementary School in Duncansville was the State Champion in Daffodil Days sales for The American Cancer Society. Sad to say that ACS is dropping the annual sale, but Foot of Ten keeps their title of top seller ($24,000 raised this year) after 13 years. They recently had their rewards assembly for the students. Yes, these are their teachers (...and the kids are lucky to have them)
(Video) Michigan House Member Douglas Geiss(D) said if Right-To-Work passes in the state, "there will be blood". Numerous Michigan law makers repeated the remark on Twitter. A crowd later surround a tent set up by Americans for Prosperity/Michigan (a pro-Right-To-Work group) outside the capitol. The tent was occupied by adult activists, but also elderly and children. The crowd, some armed with knives, cut up and trampled the tent while AFP members inside. Several inside were kicked, punched multiple times and trampled. The law makers quickly deleted their retweets of the "there will be blood" message.
Followup - so, was the original page a hoax? A Punk? A cruel trick?
An attack on Joe Paterno?

THIS PAGE was set up by someone claiming the original page, no matter it's
intent, did rally people. And so the discussion (shouting match?) continues.
