    Richard Anderson, the Emmy-nominated actor who played Oscar Goldman in both hit 1970s series “The Six Million Dollar Man” and “The Bionic Woman,” died August 31. He was 91. Anderson’s credits spanned more than 180 film and TV roles over six decades after starting his Hollywood career as a messenger at MGM. But he will be best remembered for playing Goldman, the handler of the bionic duo played by Lee Majors and Lyndsay Wagner. Combined, the series ran for 150 episodes and several TV movies — two of which Anderson produced.

    The Right Scoop ^ | 03/31/2014 | Caleb Howe
    At the Washington Post, Jennifer Rubin this weekend highlighted a video of Rand Paul speaking in 2012 about sanctions on Iran. In it, Paul disparages the notion of use of force, and for some reason claims the United States was partly to blame for World War II! “There are times when sanctions have made it worse. I mean, there are times .. leading up to World War II we cut off trade with Japan. That probably caused Japan to react angrily. We also had a blockade on Germany after World War I, which may have encouraged them … some of...

    The Senate's top Democrats sought to reassure supporters on Thursday that a key immigration bill wasn't dead this year. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said they would move later in December to pass a version of the DREAM Act that had been passed by the House on Wednesday night, ending speculation that lawmakers wouldn't act to pass the immigration bill at all this year. "[T]he Senate will move to the House-passed version of the bill later this month," the pair said Thursday in a statement. "In the meantime, we will work with House...

    (Kyodo) _ While China made no official comment on Friday morning about concerns expressed by the United States over a recent anti- satellite weapons test, a Chinese newspaper ran a story saying that Washington was being too nervous about Chinese military development. The Global Times, a newspaper under the Chinese Communist Party's organ People's Daily, quoted a Chinese military expert as saying that the United States was "being a little bit nervous" in a story headlined, "Unreasonable thoughts by U.S. over China's anti-missile weapons." "In terms of technology, attacking a satellite in space is normal technology," the paper quoted an...

    A GREENPEACE activist was thrown overboard when a Japanese whale harpoon was launched across an inflatable boat in the Antarctic seas yesterday. The incident has forced Greenpeace to rethink their human shield style protest against Japanese scientific whaling in the Southern Ocean. The Japanese says Greenpeace is taking the risks for the sake of public relations. A harpoon from Japanese whaling vessel Yushin Maru No.2 was fired directly over the Zodiac inflatable boat, which was shadowing a minke whale in Antarctic seas. Greenpeace chief executive Steve Shallhorn said the harpoon had flown within a metre of the inflatable. "Greenpeace had...

    I am a registered Republican and I will be be voting for Bush in this election. However, I am very troubled by a couple of issues. It seems (as much as I was against it) that Klintoon's nominal tax increase on the super wealthy did work. It didn't hurt the economy, it didn't hurt the wealthy's input to creating jobs, and it did help reduce the deficit. Also I wonder about President Bush's intentions for going into Iraq. I tend to believe he was backing a PNAC plan and would have gone there regardless of whether or not 9/11 occurred....

    Associated Press | December 24, 2003
    PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - George E. Elliott Jr., whose unheeded warning about aircraft approaching Pearl Harbor was depicted in history books and movies like "Tora, Tora, Tora," has died. He was 85. Elliot died Saturday of complications from a stroke, his family said. The former Army radar operator detected the incoming Japanese aircraft on Dec. 7, 1941; he issued a warning, which was brushed aside. Nearly an hour later, the enemy planes reached the Navy fleet in the harbor. A 50-year anniversary story by The Associated Press told how Elliott and another private, Joseph L. Lockard, had been on...

    Mixed feelings over San Pedro film event NO SHOW: Insensitivity to Japanese-Americans is cited. Vets are stunned. By Donna Littlejohn DAILY BREEZE It was going to be a night to remember. Ushers dressed in World War II military uniforms, vintage cars pulling up to the curb, Pearl Harbor survivors and a recently restored 1940s military searchlight would be on hand Dec. 7 to greet the crowds at a special anniversary showing of “Tora! Tora! Tora!” at San Pedro’s historic Warner Grand Theatre. The 1970 film — a joint American and Japanese production — is considered one of the most accurate...
