LOS ANGELES -- Michael Ansara, a television and movie actor whose roles included a Klingon on "Star Trek," has died. A longtime friend and spokesman for Ansara says the actor died Wednesday at his home in Calabasas, Calif. after a long illness. He was 91. Besides the "Star Trek" role, Ansara appeared on dozens of TV shows, including "Broken Arrow," "Law of the Plainsman," "I Dream of Jeannie," "Hawaii 5-0" and "Murder, She Wrote." His film credits include "Julius Caesar," "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea," "The Greatest Story Ever Told" and "The Comancheros" with John Wayne.

Good actor. His looks got him a lot of ´Indian´ roles. Sort of like Iron Eyes Cody who was Italian.

I grew up in a household where my dad watched a lot of the 1950´s cowboy shows. Saw Mr Ansara on every show possible. He certainly looked the part of an American Indian. It was always strange to see him play a regular guy in a suit and tie. RIP 91 years is a long time.

Ditto, #3.... same here. I remember him best from Broken Arrow - he played ´Cochise´, did he not? I remember thinking in later years, ´wow, Jeannie´s married Cochise!´ (I was still a dopey kid then....)

From IMDb.com:
Mini Biography
Born in a small village in Syria, Michael Ansara came to the United States with his American parents at the age of two, living in New England, until the family´s relocation to California ten years later. He entered Los Angeles City College with the intention of becoming a doctor, but got sidetracked into the dramatics department. A stint at the Pasadena Playhouse (where fellow students included Charles Bronson, Carolyn Jones and Aaron Spelling) led to roles on stage and in films; the starring role (as Cochise) on the popular television series ´´Broken Arrow´´ (1956) elevated Ansara to stardom.

In the 1950 movie, "Broken Arrow", blue-eyed Jeff Chandler played Cochise. Obviously, casting was easier (and better) by the time of the television show.

I enjoyed Michael Ansara best in "The Comancheros".

Drunk Secret Service agent,

CBS News, by Staff    Original Article

WASHINGTON -- The Secret Service sent three agents home from the Netherlands just before President Obama´s arrival after one agent was found inebriated in an Amsterdam hotel, the agency said Tuesday. The three agents were benched Sunday for "disciplinary reasons," said Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan, declining to elaborate. Donovan said the incident was prior to Mr. Obama´s arrival Monday in the country and did not compromise the president´s security in any way. Still, the incident represents a fresh blemish for an elite agency struggling to rehabilitate its reputation following a high-profile prostitution scandal and other allegations of misconduct.

Judge Joe Brown has been sentenced to a taste of his own medicine. The former TV host has been jailed in contempt of court after going at it with a Memphis judge in a spat captured in an audio recording. The 66-year-old former TV host is angrily heard lecturing and threatening to report a Shelby County judge during a child-support hearing as if the courtroom were his own. The incident appeared to be over his right to due process. "Excuse me ... you need to straighten yourself out," Brown´s heard telling Juvenile Court Magistrate Harold "Hal" Horne in audio obtained by Commercial Appeal

Democrats Leap Into Action After Nate Silver
Drags the Senate Too Far Into ´Panic´ Territory
Atlantic, by Philip Bump    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 3/25/2014 5:02:49 AM     Post Reply
Nate Silver´s first electoral prediction at the new 538.com was that Democrats are likely to lose the Senate. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, which exists solely to keep that from happening, quickly issued a memo hoping to undermine the charge, because Silver threatened to move perceptions of November from hard-but-doable to ugh-why-bother territory. Campaigns spend a lot of time and energy keeping donors, activists, and supporters in a very precisely determined zone, which we´ll call the "motivation" zone. All of those groups need to think that the candidate they´re supporting is on the verge of losing the race, at all times,

A mean and vulgar troublemaker died last week, gone to his reward for making life miserable for millions of Americans, and some of those who suffered under the lash of language, many of them advocates of the lavender lifestyle, have set an example of Christian good will and forbearance. Maybe it will be catching. Whatever good deeds the Rev. Fred Phelps of the Westboro Baptist Church left behind — he was once a civil-rights lawyer who defended blacks when no other lawyers would — will be interred with his bones.

President Obama has told a Dutch newspaper that the United States does not see the ongoing crisis in Crimea and Ukraine as a "zero-sum game" between Washington and Moscow as pro-Russian forces reportedly overran a third Ukrainian military base in the Black Sea peninsula Monday. In the interview, published in Monday´s edition of de Volkskrant, Obama said, "The United States does not view Europe as a battleground between East and West, nor do we see the situation in Ukraine as a zero-sum game. That’s the kind of thinking that should have ended with the Cold War." The president went on to say,

Fourth Anniversary of Obamacare
Brings Billions in Costs to Economy

Obamacare is adding billions in economic costs and millions of paperwork hours, according to a new report released on Monday. To mark the anniversary of Obamacare, which became law on March 23, 2010, the American Action Forum released a report finding that the law’s regulatory burdens are twice as great as its benefits. “After four years of implementation, countless delays, a website disaster, and constant litigation, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) celebrates its inauspicious birthday this week,” the report said. “From a regulatory perspective, the law has imposed more than $27.2 billion in total private sector costs, $8 billion in unfunded state

WASHINGTON - Alan Thacker wants health coverage, but he can´t get help in his home state of Georgia. Mary Moscarello Gutierrez no longer can afford insurance in New Jersey. Justin Thompson of Utah refuses to be forced into the president´s health law. Millions of people in the United States will remain uninsured despite this week´s final, frenzied push to sign them up under the health law. Their reasons are all over the map. Across the country, many of the uninsured just don´t know much about the health overhaul and its March 31 deadline for enrolling in plans that can yield big discounts,

After 4-year-old Kaelyn Kerr got stuck in an elevator in Reading, Massachusetts with her mother and baby brother on Wednesday, the only way out was up a ladder and over a wall. Needless to say, little Kaelyn panicked. My Fox Boston reports that the firefighters learned that little Kaelyn liked the Disney movie “Frozen,” and so Scott Myette began playing the movie’s theme song, “Let It Go” on his cell-phone. Myette and fellow firefighter John Keough sang along with the hit song to try calming Kaelyn down. “It worked,” Keough told My Fox Boston. “We got her to a point where she

When it comes to green gentry liberalism, think of an Americanized version of the PBS hit—where everyone knows his or her place, and our betters look best. Last week was a good week for natural gas, but a bad one for green gentry liberalism. John Podesta, a veteran of the Clinton White House who is once again a presidential adviser, tried to explain some energy facts of life to the true-believing liberal base. Still, it’s unclear if Podesta’s intended audience was listening, and that willful blindness may cost the Democrats control of the Senate. Podesta warned that opposition to natural

Putin Vs. Palin: Is Alaska

Sarah Palin has been laughing off the fact that she wasn’t included on the sanctions list issued by Russia in response to the U.S.’ sanctions list of prominent Russians. But analysts believe Vladimir Putin made a big mistake in snubbing her: you don’t want to raise the ire of Palin, who may be our biggest bulwark against an invasion of that former Russian colony, Alaska. Yes, shocking as it seems, Alaska was once owned by Russia. It was its colony from 1742 to 1867 until its purchase by the United States from cash-strapped Czar Alexander II. There are still descendants

ONCE upon a time I had a cat named Lucky, and the name fit. She turned up on our doorstep as a stray and stayed with us for 10 years, until her rather gruesome demise. (More about that later.) I liked her because she was a free spirit, and a survivor, going out for two, three, even five days, in all seasons. She’d show up when it suited her, waiting in the dark before dawn till I came downstairs and turned on my desk lamp. Then she’d make her presence known by rising up on her hind legs and gently

In BOYERS, Pa. — The trucks full of paperwork come every day, turning off a country road north of Pittsburgh and descending through a gateway into the earth. Underground, they stop at a metal door decorated with an American flag. Behind the door, a room opens up as big as a supermarket, full of five-drawer file cabinets and people in business casual. About 230 feet below the surface, there is easy-listening music playing at somebody’s desk. This is one of the weirdest workplaces in the U.S. government — both for where it is and for what it does.

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

Former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news this week publicizing a new book about women’s rights. But, as is often the case with Carter, he drew more interest for comments he made about Israel and its supporters. When asked on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday by Andrea Mitchell why it was that Barack Obama never called upon him for advice, he made it clear that the Jewish state was the reason he has been treated like a pariah: I—that’s a hard question– for me to answer—you know, with complete candor.

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

Most Supreme Court watchers are fixated these days on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby—the important challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate scheduled for argument Tuesday. And why wouldn’t they be? With its potent mix of religion, sex, Obamacare, and prayerful corporations, it’s the blockbuster case of the term. It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts’s leadership on the Supreme Court. Just two years ago, Roberts cast the deciding vote to largely uphold the Affordable Care Act. While the country remains divided over whether he acted like a traitor or a statesman, all would have to agree

Hunter Walker, Business Insider’s politics editor, published the announcement on Monday, after teasing the news on Twitter by announcing that “something wonderful is about to happen.” The folks at Business Insider are clearly aware of the built-in entertainment value of hiring the scandalized politician, who is best known for sending an explicit photo of himself to an online mistress on Twitter -- and initially denying the photo was his.
