A day for connections....

There are some days when things just seem to connect....

Yesterday's blog on Judgment at Nuremberg failed to mention one other notable cast member: Werner Klemperer. In that movie he played a despicable Nazi prosecutor on trial for war crimes, but to most Americans he is recognizable as the infamously inept Colonel Klink on TV's Hogan's Heroes.

Coincidentally, that show was mentioned in a segment of this week's On the Media in a story about a new sitcom to be broadcast on the new Terror TV cable network. It happens that the initial reaction to Hogan's Heroes was somewhat negative given its comic rendition of Nazi POW camps, and Bob Garfield made that point when interviewing Terror TV's Rex Van Ommeran. Of special interest is a Terror Channel sitcom, Jihad to Go There, that features jihadist recruits in training to be terrorists who all go by the name of Abdul.

Not willing to drop the subject at that point, and making the connections even stronger, On the Media followed with a related story that was equally interesting....

And finally, talking about "connections," today Google announced the launch of its TiSP wifi service. Now this is something I can actually use!
