A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

Sixty nine years ago today, 100,000 U.S., British, and Allied troops landed on the beaches of Normandy and began the battle to liberate Western Europe from the Nazi occupation that had brutalized the continent since 1940. Twenty-nine years ago today, Ronald Reagan gave one of the greatest speeches of his entire career in tribute to the heroes of D-Day. To this day, no tribute to the World War II generation has reached this level of eloquence.

If only Omaha could have been as 'quiet' as Utah beach.

Great courage in an honorable cause. How often does that happen?

Thanks for the reminder, Indy. Too often, as the older generation dies off, I think we forget what they suffered.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
