Great movie on tonight
if you are not one of the pioneers who have abandoned their cable. "The Pawnbroker", on Turner Classic at 9 CST. This film is not shown very often. Considered the late Rod Steiger's greatest performance, and one hell of a movie. Not suitable for younguns.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
