Mars, Meet Venus

The Missus' activity last evening? Neighborhood book club discussion of My Sister's Keeper.

Mine? John Wayne's The Cowboys.

Just thought I'd mention it.

YIPS from Steve: There's a Uranus joke in there somewhere, I'm just too lazy and jaded to pluck it.

One of my favorite John Wayne movies EVER.

Yes, I'd forgotten how good it is. I couldn't help thinking how much fun those boys must have had making it. Also, I loved the Duke's utter contempt for Bruce Dern's psychopath, even after he starts shooting.

Yeah, that was pretty poignant. Duke's character won even if Dern killed him, because he died as something Dern would never be -- a man.
