    Two obituaries published this weekend show how little progress America has made on abortion in the last several decades. The death of actor James Garner saddened fans across the country. Born James Scott Bumgarner, the 86-year-old Rockford Files star overcame mental and physical abuse from his stepmother – who would regularly beat him with whatever was handy and force him to wear dresses as a form of emasculation – to become one of the most beloved stars of his day. In his autobiography, The Garner Files, he revealed that he had no memory of his birth mother, who died when...

    There was more to James Garner than just his acting and racing careers. The beloved actor, who died July 19 (read about his career, life and death in this related Inquisitr article) left behind a legacy of political activism. Like the vast majority of the people in the TV and movie industries, James Garner was a staunch, lifelong Democrat. That’s hardly unusual — according to this article in Suite, Hollywood gives five times more money to Democrats than to Republicans. But where many Hollywood Democrats like to talk the talk, Garner walked the walk — sometimes literally. On August 28,...

    Saint Valentine's Day being later this week motivates the appropriately titled pick for today's feature. TAOL is a dark farce about a struggling artist(Dick Van Dyke) who fakes his own death to increase interest in and sales of his own paintings. James Garner is his buddy/manager and partner in this scheme which, of course, snowballs into all kinds of trouble and comic events. Lovely actresses Angie Dickinson and Elke Sommer in their prime play the women in their lives. A fun movie that I discovered as a child on a Sunday afternoon being played by a local channel but oddly...

    Warner Bros. today will launch a service giving the public the opportunity to custom-order DVDs of films never before released via the medium. The move is seen as a response to dwindling DVD sales and also to customer demand for titles that while not totally obscure, didn't necessarily generate enough heat to merit a full-on DVD release. The Warner Archive Collection, available at, includes films dating back to the silent age and for $19.95 per disc Warners will burn, package and ship for receipt within an estimated five days. Currently there are 150 titles available with for a total...

    Excerpt - LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Actor James Garner, best known for starring in the classic television series "Maverick" and "The Rockford Files," underwent surgery this week after suffering a minor stroke, his spokeswoman said on Tuesday. Garner, 80, who built a six-decade career playing ruggedly charming, good-natured anti-heroes, suffered a stroke at home last Friday and was admitted to a Los Angeles-area hospital, publicist Jennifer Allen said. The actor underwent surgery on Sunday, and his prognosis following the operation was described as "very positive," Allen said, adding that Garner's vital signs were good and that he was conscious and...

    Arlington, VA - James Garner, Mayor of Hempstead, NY issued the following statement addressing Sen. John Kerry's record on jobs, health care and education: "From jobs to health care to education, America's mayors realize that John Kerry's rhetoric doesn't match his record on the important issues facing our cities. Kerry's economic plan would destroy jobs by raising taxes on all Americans. During his first 14 years in the Senate, Kerry sponsored just two bills related to health care and Kerry missed 36 of 38 votes on last year's Medicare prescription drug bill. Kerry's attacks on the No Child Left Behind...

    Many black Republicans running for Congress are turning away from the identity politics of race and ethnicity and, in the process, seeking to reshape the way politicians and voters think about skin color and ideology. In 2004, 10 black Republicans are running for the House and Senate; these candidates come from Georgia, Indiana, Michigan, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, Oregon and Rhode Island. Unlike many black Democrats, whose political roots go back to the civil rights battles of the 1950s and ’60s, these Republicans draw a distinction between politics and race, arguing that their worldview has little to do with...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- In an effort to break the Democratic Party's grip on the black vote, several leading black Republicans have accepted an offer from one of the nation's largest urban radio networks to deliver a weekly address targeting African Americans. Alphonso Jackson, whom President Bush chose to be secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, will present the first address on Saturday at 1:06 p.m., said Jerry Lopes, president of program operations and affiliations at Pittsburgh-based American Urban Radio Networks.

    Say L.I. mayor wants D.C. job WASHINGTON - Hempstead, L.I., Mayor James Garner has told fellow Republicans he will seek to challenge Democratic Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, GOP sources said yesterday. McCarthy, a nurse serving her fourth term in Congress, became a fervent advocate for gun control after her husband was killed and her son badly wounded in a shooting spree on the Long Island Rail Road in 1993. The Republican sources said Garner, 58, has had discussions to gather support from national leaders, including Rep. Thomas Reynolds (R-N.Y.), head of the National Republican Congressional Committee. One Republican officeholder, who...

    By DEVLIN BARRETT Associated Press Writer October 17, 2003, 12:56 PM EDT WASHINGTON -- Nearly a decade after her husband was killed and her son badly wounded in a shooting rampage on the Long Island Rail Road, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy is headed back into battle over the same piece of legislation that propelled her to Congress. McCarthy, 59, decided to run for office after her then-congressman, Republican Daniel Frisa, voted in 1995 to repeal the assault weapons ban. Running as a Democrat, she unseated him the following year. As Congress approaches the 10-year expiration of the ban, the widow advocate...
