My greatest Charles Durning remembrance is from the made for tv movie "Dark Night of the Scarecrow" in which he portrays a rural postal worker involved with others in the killing and cover-up of a mentally retarded man. C.D. was also a WW2 vet I believe.

From 1981

Actually, my favourite of his was always "UFO" where the aliens' helmets were filled with some liquid that they needed to breathe.
Let's also not forget "Captain Scarlet" where the puppets "drove" their car seated in the wrong direction using mirrors.

Thanks for the link MTF,as hidious as it is.
This happend in the biggest democracy in the world.I wonder how they will treat the 6 men so far identified.I bet they don't tax the poor to get justice or make a political point or make a big media deal about the thousands that don't die from violence everyday.But from poor heath care. :roll:
What happenend to her.....I would die to stop that kind of....I don't have a word for anyone who kills anothers dream and at an age that you can't recover from.If anyone of our soldiers are proud that they left their seed in some raped girl in war...crap I'd kill 'em with love.This was on a bus with no war.Whats' up with that ?
BBP was right to bring this story to the forefront.It's the brave women like her,BBP, that may save a life some day.Because the guy's anywhere in the world can't get away with this shit nowhere anymore with the women of the world watching!

Had to get that out.Go fuck off if you don't like it.

Kirk, I really appreciate your sentiment, what happened to the two women there recently is hideous and outrageous... but in the context, you.... could've worded that better... if you see what I mean...
