re: Chris Hardwick #metooed in a big way. - John Keating
No comment regarding the accusation, but, on a side note, I have never understood the appeal of this guy or how he has managed to stay in the public eye. He is not funny, he is not insightful, he is not charming, and he is not talented. He is right up there with Dane Cook's appeal as something I...

re: What are your thoughts on Dr Zhivago? - John Keating
[i]Doctor Zhivago[/i] is one of my favorite movies. A sweeping epic set amidst the Russian Revolution, it is stunning in a visual sense. It focuses on the tragedies affecting the people caught up in violent transformation of society and how they maintain relationships as well as make new connectio...

re: Fresno State Professor Gloats Over Barbara Bush's Death, Brags She Won't Be Fired - John Keating
I am not an admirer of the Bush family and I opposed the Iraq War. I still would never even entertain the thoughts or notions to share those thoughts that this professor did with such callousness. The fact that this person is a professor, a teacher, saddens and angers me. There is an escalating...

re: SNL Presidents - John Keating
Yes, he portrayed him back in the 80s to 1990. Phil Hartman was an amazing performer. The nuance in his Trump impersonation is so much better than Baldwin. [img]https://www.nbc.com/sites/nbcunbc/files/files/images/2015/5/04/140208_2723709_Trump_Divorce_Cold_Opening_anvver_1.jpg[/img] [im...
