    In the previous edition of T.H.A.T., I only pointed out very little that was good that I had seen on television recently, and a person who read the edition found what good there was was following a lot of information about crap on television, so I thought I would start this edition of T.H.A.T. with something good, which was not officially on television recently--it was on YouTube.  I recently came across the video on YouTube called "A Retro Mr. Bubble Commercial," and the video (which was uploaded to YouTube on February 5, 2010) is a commercial for the "Mr. Bubble" bubble-bath soap from the early 1960s, which I had seen on television when I was a boy.  It is an animated piece featuring a little boy named Hubert and his grandmother.  It is fun, and it is, as I see it, something that most people involved in television production today cannot make because it is not in their nature to make nice and pleasant things since they are not good people, being communists and socialists (temporarily restrained communists) and supporters or rotten people, like Barack Obama, who has a rotten nature that is willing to hurt people (in fact, I think Barack Obama likes to hurt people, enjoying it greatly).  Most certainly, "A Retro Mr. Bubble Commercial" shows off the rottenness of many people involved in television today--it shows what people today cannot make.  Now, to teach about rotten people in the U.S. and in the U.S. television business, I provide this edition of Television History and Trivia, which may or may not show off something good beyond what I have just shown.   [Oh, the old Mr. Bubble commercial can also be found on YouTube in the video listed as "Animated Commercials Part 6: Mattel-ABC to Funny Face."]

    I have no trouble finding idiots and bad people on television in the Detroit area, especially on talk shows or news-based shows, whether produced by the local television stations or produced by other entities (such as networks).  On Sunday, January 12, 2014, I caught two rotten men on television during a portion of Real Talk (a locally produced program), which was being shown on WADL-HD, Channel 38.1; I only caught a part of the program.  When I tuned in, the host of the weekly show--Rev. Horace Sheffield III--started up an interview with Herman B. Grey, the president of the Children's Hospital of Michigan.  Early in the interview, Herman B. Grey said: "...A person's health is somethin' that you can take for granted, and, dah, having good health is, is certainly a blessing, but, dah, to maintain good health you gotta go to the doctor, you got to be able to access health care, and, dah, and African-Americans in particularly, um, have significant disparity, ah, in terms of how, ah, their health is compared to others, and a big part of that, of course, is that they don't have the same level of access to care, and so the Affordable Care Act, ah, is a very positive step in the right direction for not just, you know, Detroit and our community, of course, but for the country, allowing folks who are uninsured to finally be able to access physicians other than just showin' up in the emergency department...."  This collection of words is crap and propaganda--actually, it is shit thought from a shit-head thinker, and it teaches idiocy to the audience.  First, a person's being able to go to a doctor is not dependent on the person's having health-care insurance.  By the way, the idea of health-care insurance has been destroyed by communists and socialists and other bad people in the country--insurance is supposed to be for or cover great disasters and not to be for simple things, such as cuts and bruises, which should be cover out of pocket by a person.  Second, a person's maintaining good health has nothing to do with health-care insurance--it  is up to a person to watch over the self and work to keep the self well.  Third, for decades, the health-care industry has been open to every one in the country, and, in fact, federal law has forced doctors and hospitals to care for people in need of medical care, especially emergency medical care, so it is not as if the United States of America were people were dying because they lacked health-care insurance.  Fourth, blacks have had access to good care as much as whites and Asians and others have!  The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 is rotten for blacks--all blacks, especially the poor--and whites and Asians and all others for many reasons (as I show--partially--in my document entitled It is a Matter of Self-Defense: The Individual Against the Federal Government of the United States of America, Especially the Killer Known as Barack Obama and Other Democratic Party Politicians, which can be reached by using this Self-Defense link).  Fifth, in the past, the uninsured have been able to access doctors other than doctors in emergency rooms, and now the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 is leading to the practice of having the federal government block people from seeing doctors.  Herman B. Grey--in charge of a hospital--is a rotten man, a truly rotten man.  Rev. Horace Sheffield III followed up what Herman B. Grey said (as I showed in the quoted material) with this--"...When you say that disparity in, in African-Americans health care is primarily that--they don't have insurance so they can't do the preventive things...."  That statement was bullshit from Rev. Horace Sheffield III.  A person need not have a health-insurance plan to do preventative work on the person--preventative care is not the expensive part of health care.  For decades, people have taken part in preventive care for themselves in this country--unless they do not take care of themselves.  I report and state that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is rotten to the first degree and Rev. Horace Sheffield III and Herman B. Grey promote it, and that makes them shit people.  As a part of life, people are supposed to take care of themselves and plan head about how to care for themselves, such as by setting aside money to take care of themselves, especially for preventative care or minor problems.  The two men taught the people, especially the dumb blacks in Detroit, rottenness and ignorance on the program.

    At 11:00 a.m., on Sunday, January 12, 2014, WADL-HD, Channel 38.1, aired an episode of a locally produced program entitled Transforming Detroit, which was not produced by the station, and the program was hosted by Dr. Princess-O'Dilia, and, this time, her guest was Diallo Smith.  My first reaction to the host was that she came off as at least a black socialist.  Dr. Princess-O'Dilia called herself a "life coach," and she noted that she started up the "Global World Peace True Perfect Movement."  She came off a phony and shallow!  (The idea of a Third World "medicine woman" came to mind, and even the term "charlatan" came to mind.)  I later did research on the Internet, and a facebook page tied to "Princess" noted that she was a "Metaphysical Parapsychologist and Scientist of Metaphysics."  To me, she fit in the category of foolishness and pseudo-intellectual nonsense. Transforming Detroit is a weekly series, which was started up on WADL-HD late last year.

    By the way, Dr. Princess-O'Dilia has nothing on Maxine Willis, who is still hosting Keys Kids in the Detroit area (now seen on Sundays at 3:30 p.m. on WMYD-HD. Channel 20.1).

         Advertisement: In March 2009, a book called Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto, which had been written by Mark R. Levin, was published.  Through the book, Mark R. Levin talks about how tyranny has been creeping into the country, and he also talks about how the country has been changing from a representative republic, which has a constitution as a basis, to something, yet to be defined, and although Mark R. Levin says that it is the statist who is causing the change, especially those who are a part of the Democratic Party and in government jobs, I say that it is communists, socialists, would-be dictators, and Marxists, such as Barack Obama, who are making the changes, such as by discarding The U.S. Constitution.  I urge you to see and read Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto, and pass it on to others, especially teenagers and young adults (and consider listening to The Mark Levin Show, the nationally syndicated radio show, on a regular basis).

    Let me get to something, finally deciding to cover it.  On Monday, September 16, 2013, WTVS-HD, Channel 56.1, which is PBS-associated television series, began to run a half-hour weekly program called Start Up, and the program was syndicated to other stations associated PBS, and the series was designed to last thirteen weeks (the series can be called a locally produced program).  Basically, each show was designed to show off several little businesses that have been started up recently, and the businesses were basically in some big cities in the East, such as Chicago, New York, Detroit, and Washington, D.C.  [By the the way, the cities mentioned in the previous sentence are under the control of "Democrats" (a.k.a. socialists and communists) and are depressed economically and culturally.]  The host of the episode that I saw was Gary Bredow, who called himself a filmmaker and entrepreneur, and to me, he looked like a typical "liberal young yuppie."  [By the way, a "liberal" in this case is a politically ignorant person, who does not know or realize "liberalism" in the U.S. is really political ideas of enslavism, particularly communism and socialism (which is really nothing more than temporarily restrained communism), and the "liberal" is a person who is unaware of the rottenness of Barack Obama and his associates and what threat Barack Obama and his associates are to small businesses.]  I caught the program aired on Monday, December 23, 2012, and all the persons on the program seemed to be "liberals," though they were involved in "capitalism" ("capitalism" is not a political ideology), and the program had Carolyn Stromberg (who runs "Righteous Cheese," a cheese shop in Washington, D.C.), Constance Sherman (who has a business called "Hot Girls Pearls" in New York City and makes decorative necklaces that cool the neck), and Chris Burkeybyle (who has "Four Chamber Forge" in Ferndale, Michigan, and makes, for one, wood jewelry, using scavenged wood or scrap wood, like logs and tree limbs).  I decided to talk about this television series, since through coincidence, I just happened see it for the first time on December 23, 2013--which had a person--Chris Burkeybyle--who lived only blocks away from me (I do not know him).  What Chris Burkeybyle said at one point in his segment made me wonder, made me wonder whether or not he was giving viewers a wrong impression about his business.  Gary Bredow asked Chris Burkeybyle how much money was tied up in his business, and Chris Burkeybyle noted that it was about $1,000.  It seemed to me the figure was not correct.  Chris Burkeybyle mentioned his father worked with tools and had tools (not unlike my father), and it seemed to me some of the tools that Chris Burkeybyle had had been his father's, and it seemed to me Chris Burkeybyle did not take in to account the cost of tools that had, in essence, been in his family for decades or had been obtained over the years.  Some of the big tools shown looked old, and new such tools can be expensive to get today.  Drill presses, sanders, band saws, et cetera can cost a lot of money, and other tools, such as drill bits and sandpaper, are expenses, and electricity is a cost.  A person who was watching the show and who heard the "$1,000" figure might think it would not take much money to get a business like Chris Burkeybyle's going.  Another problem with the program is it seem to be designed to focus on fluff businesses, covering jewelry makers and cheese peddlers.  By the way, the next episode was expected to have, for instance, operators of a coffee shop in Detroit (which is called Astro Coffee) and a place that sells popsicles (in Washington, D.C.).  A country can only have so many makers of jewelry, and a country can only have so many popsicle stands and cupcake shops and such.  A country needs machine shops that make parts for things, and a country needs small companies that make small tools, such as drill bits, and a country needs accountant businesses, and a country needs muffler shops and auto repair shops and auto-arts stores, et cetera.  While watching the episode of Start Up on December 23, 2013, and while learning what the next episode was going to feature, I felt the series was designed to feature "dream" businesses of young adults that really do not drive an economy and provide many jobs and to not feature businesses that would drive the economy and create assets that really make and keep up the infrastructure of a community and a nation.  At one point, Constance Sherman noted that she was not one for the "corporate life," and that is fine, but I got a little impression that she was putting down "corporate life," which has to exist if such big things as jets and cars and tanks can be made--because it takes big corporations to make complex things, things beyond the simplicity of a wooden ring (made from a small block of wood).  The technical credits for the program were good, though it was only a "one-camera" show and can be called a low-budget show, and the host was pleasant enough, though he came off a little bit feminized (as many young men do today).

    The previous paragraph shows off some idiocy of some people and hints at what created or creates a good community and a health community, and here is another paragraph that shows off more failed thinking about a city, and particularly it shows off why Detroit is a dead city.  On Sunday, December 22, 2013, WXYZ-HD, Channel 7.1, aired a production called informally Detroit 2020 Persons of the Week, and it ran for an hour and was a local production hosted by Stephen Clark, Carolyn Clifford, and Dave LewAllen (and some voice-over work was done by station staffers Glenda  Lewis and JoAnne Purtan).  The program celebrated people in Detroit who, for instance, had an urban garden or were involved in giving away food or were running a diaper bank (another giveaway entity), and the program did not celebrate people starting up useful businesses, such as muffler shops, machine shops, dress shops (with, for instance, tailoring capability), et cetera, which would get people, especially young men and women, into jobs and out of the having to take handouts and would improve the infrastructure of Detroit, which would ultimately have a more "diverse" business community.  I felt the celebrated people and the people involved in making the program were all happy and giddy with the expanding help programs--those seeking money donations and donated things to give away--and with the idea that their work was the way to make Detroit better.  It was all focused on providing more socialism--taking from people who work and giving to people who do not and not making people really self-sufficient and smarter [I say that knowing the country is in bad shape, given some 47-million Americans are using "food stamps" or the like, which is the sign of a rotten country, and I note that taking from some and giving to others does not create anything good in the long run).  The program celebrated and promoted more expanding giveaway systems and wanted viewers to contact the station with the names of more people like those in the program who could be saluted.

    Oh, on Tuesday, December 24, 2013, WXYZ-HD, Channel 7.1, aired a program informally called Detroit Gems, which was hosted by Stephen Clark, Carolyn Clifford, and Dave LewAllen, and it was a half-hour program that saluted some businesses, such as Honey Bee Market and Bucharest Grill, and I have nothing to say about the program, except--Where are the machine shops, the auto-parts stores, the hair salons, the architectural-design places, the independent-type hardware stores, et cetera?

   Announcement for the novice again: To get useful television-delivered news or Internet-delivered news, go to Fox News Channel, WorldNetDaily.com, "The Drudge Report," and CNS News (which is on the Internet and which was launched on June 16, 1998), since the entities do not blindly support Barack Obama, as do CNN, MSNBC, NBC-TV, CBS-TV, and ABC-TV (to learn about bad journalism, you might tune in to CNN, MSNBC, NBC-TV, CBS-TV, and ABC-TV from time to time to see how they differ from the Fox News Channel and those mentioned with it in presenting political stories and events, and you should discover CNN, MSNBC, NBC-TV, CBS-TV, and ABC-TV avoid covering things that make Barack Obama look bad or show his true nature, which could harm you).  If you are unclear of my intentions, I say in different words that you should boycott CNN, MSNBC, NBC-TV, CBS-TV, and ABC-TV and hope they lose more ratings and advertising revenues, since they are expendable, and it is time for you to find the guts to be mean and heartless and cancel them--since they are hurting you.

    So, it is time for some television reviews, focusing on two Detroit-area produced specials.  On Friday, January 17, 2014, the "Charity Preview" for the North American International Auto Show took place at Detroit, and two television stations ran specials about the event--WXYZ-HD, Channel 7.1, and WDIV-HD, Channel 4.1.  By the way, the two stations have covered the event annually for a while.  The special shown on Channel 7.1 was called Red Carpet Charity Preview, and it ran from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and the main hosts were Stephen Clark and Carolyn Clifford, and the special shown on Channel 4.1 was called North American International Auto Show: Celebrating 25 Years: Charity Preview, and it ran from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 pm., and the main hosts were Devin Scillian and Carmen Harlan.  Generally speaking, both shows were kind of bland for viewers.  The show on Channel 7.1 paraded a bunch of people in front of the camera--there were 20 live interviewees, and about a dozen people were interviewed for recorded segments.  I say that there were too many people shown and talked with and not enough cars shown.  However, on Saturday, January 18, 2014, Channel 7.1, would air a half-hour special focusing on cars (Cars are Stars) and not people.  In contrast, the special for Channel 4.1. had only nine live interviewees and a couple of recorded segments with interviewees.  Technically the programs were okay; however, on Saturday, January 18, 2014, the special for Channel 7.1 was shown as a repeat, and the sound was out of synchronization.  Since the shows were only a little bit about the cars really and were more about showing off people, I now talk about the people.  Channel 4.1 had style reporter Jon Jordan on the program or a few minutes, and he wore something that looked crappy, a suit thing with a fur collar.  Channel 7.1. had a fashion designer named Janna Coumoundouros on the program, and she showed off--on an ugly female model--one her creations, and the creation was crappy, and what Janna Coumoundouros wore looked crappy, and Janna Coumoundouros looked kind of ugly.  For the special on Channel 4.1, Devin Scillian looked dorky, and Carmen Harlan looked bland and even kind of crappy, mostly caused by the gown she wore.  For the special on Channel 7.1, Stephen Clark wore a white tuxedo, and he looked fat, and Carolyn Clifford wore gown that made her look sexy, and she even looked squeezable and fondleable (though she needs just little more breast size), and Glenda Lewis (who was one of six reporters on duty) wore a yellow dress, and Glenda Lewis was pleasant to look at, though Carolyn Clifford won the night (remember, to me, Carolyn Clifford's mind is rather rotten, given her support for the Democrats of today, even when under the good hair style like that which she had for the special).  And that is the review from a man.  [Note: I did not see any sexy women--stand-outs--in the background of shots during both programs.  By the way, if you want a review from a feminized guy, you have to look elsewhere.]

    Sports commentary: By the way, I watched the football game between the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots on television on Sunday, January 19, 2014, and, for me, it was good that Denver won the game, since, in essence, the owner of the New England Patriots--Robert Kraft--had a rotten man as his guest in his suite at the stadium--it was Jon Bon Jovi, the featured performer for the musical group called "Bon Jovi" and a hard-line communist, who supports Barack Obama and who often can be heard or seen in rotten PSAs on radio and television promoting "communism" or "socialism" for people, and, really, since Robert Kraft associates with rotten men (such as Jon Bon Novi), it makes Robert Kraft a rotten man (in this case, it is a rotten rich man who happens to be a rotten man).

    Commentary with news: On Thursday, January 23, 2014/Friday, January 24, 2014, U.S. Representative John Boehner, who calls himself a "Republican" and is labeled a "Republican," was a guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and while on the program, John Boehner once again showed to the public why he is a bad man.  For one, John Boehner pushed the idea that "Tea Party"-type people, especially in the U.S. Congress, are bad people, though, in truth, "Tea Party"-type people are people who wish more politicians would uphold and follow the ways of The U.S. Constitution, which John Boehner has not been doing as a rule, such as by letting Barack Obama's rotten policies go unchallenged.  In addition, John Boehner pushed the idea or hinted at the idea that he would like to see Jeb Bush (the brother of former U.S. President George W. Bush and a son of former U.S. President George H.W. Bush) be a candidate for the U.S. Presidency under the umbrella of the "Republican Party," and I say that the idea is highly rotten, since no more "Bushes" should ever be a U.S. president or even be proposed to be a U.S. president, given better men or women exist in the country who would be candidates.  In essence, John Boehner was pushing--through supporting Jeb Bush--more destruction for the Republican Party--I say that enough people will not vote for another "Bush" to be a U.S. President.  Yes, John Boehner showed off more ways in which he seems to be working to empower more the "Democratic Party," which is and will forever be a political party designed to push an "enslavism" form of government, such as a one-party communistic government, on the country.  By the way, Jay Leno, during the interview, showed why again in public he is a really low-level thinker, if not an idiot, in matters related to "enslavism" and the true nature of the Democratic Party or the main leaders of the Republican Party (which has been transitioning into a rotten political party for some time).

    Incidentally, on Thursday, February 6, 2014, Jay Leno did his last hosting duty for The Tonight Show for NBC-TV.  Some of this guests were Oprah Winfrey (who has shown herself to be a black racist, as I have noted at the website for The Hologlobe Press and is a pusher of communism), Sheryl Crow (a big left-wing supporter), and Kim Kardashian (a nut). The program had on live or in recorded segments basically supporters of the Democratic Party (remember, in essence, it is a communist party), from Tyler Perry to Bob Costas to Bill Maher to Matt Damon to Jimmy Fallon.  And Barack Obama--the communist and supporter of people who like Sharia Law--was on the program.  Jay Leno showed off his political leanings clearly in the program.

    Facts: Hey, real guys, let me talk about a gal on television who is sexy and cute.  She has nice skin and seems to have a good set of breasts.  From time to time, I happen to run across her as a co-anchor on Today, the weekday series shown by NBC-TV (which is that communistic-based television network).  The gal is Tamron Hall.  Whoops!  Although Tamron Hall is sexy and cute, she is a rotten woman.  A good man has to recognize that fact and be wary of her.  For example, on Tuesday, January 28, 2014, around 9:03 a.m. (Eastern Standard Time), Willie Geist, Al Roker, and Tamron Hall were on camera, and they were discussing how Barack Obama's hair has become grayer over the years, and at one point, Tamron Hall noted that the unemployment "... number has gone down...."  (She was talking about the the unemployment number for the county.)  For Tamron Hall to make such a statement shows that Tamron Hall could be highly ignorant, but given the fact Tamron Hall does not speak like an ignorant person, it shows she is rotten.  The unemployment rate has not been going down.  She lied!  The size of job universe has been going down--fewer people are looking for jobs and a lot of people have dropped out of the workforce--and the Barack Obama administration has been lying about the unemployment-rate figure.  Tamron Hall was helping to push the lie, and that hurts millions of persons, because millions of persons are living with false information purposely given to them by a corrupt federal-government administration headed by Barack Obama.  Yes, Tamron Hall may be sexy and cute and have a good set of breasts--and she laughs a lot or giggles a lot--but she has a rotten mind, and she is not so pleasant to look at or not so funny when you really understand what she is.

    On Tuesday, January 28, 2014, I watched the ABC-TV feed to viewers of the "State of the Union" speech by Barack Obama.  While I watched, the production from time to time showed people in the audience, and to me, I saw mostly Democrats and Socialistic-type Republicans, such as John McCain.  And to me, almost all the persons shown seemed freaky looking or odd looking or even ugly, especially one woman, whose name I do not know.  By the way, this paragraph is commentary, which is tied to a bit of fact.  And after the Barack Obama's speech was given, U.S. Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers (a Republican related to the State of Washington) presented the "response" to the "State of the Union" speech, and she was kind of pretty--but she showed herself to be an idiot and a bad choice for any higher political office, presenting mostly a show about herself and her family (probably designed to make her a possible candidate for U.S. Vice President) and teaching nothing about what bad Barack Obama has been doing and why Barack Obama is bad.  It was a bad day for watching women on television.

    On Sunday, February 2, 2014, I watched Fox TV from noon to about 10:30 p.m., seeing, for example, the broadcast of a Super Bowl game.  At one point, Coca-Cola had an advertisement in which, for one, "America the Beautiful" was sung in several languages.  It was a rotten advertisement for many reasons, one of which was the idea of pushing the song in several languages.  The United States of America is an English-language-based nation, and it is better for a nation when only one language is pushed as the language to use so that people can understand other people.  Coca-Cola seemed to think it would be good to promote numerous languages.  That was rotten!  [I could talk about other issues, such as the idea that Coca-Cola might have been pushing as good Islamic law or the Islamic experience, when the country is not an Islamic county and country based on Sharia, which is a rotten political system masquerading as a religion thing.]  Yes, this paragraph was more commentary with facts.  If you go to "Energy and Climate Change" page tied to Coca-Cola Enterprises, you will see it pushes the idea that manmade global climate change, which is a communist-pushed hoax, is fact.  In addition, you should remember, in the fall of 2011, Coca-Cola was involved in putting out a "white" can to make people aware of the plight of polar bears because of manmade-global warming, though the plight was fake and made up.  Oh, have you tried Pepsi or RC Cola or some other brand of cola?

    Special commentary: Today, a lot of rotten people can be found on television programs, and here I reports on some that showed up themselves to be rotten and, at least in one case, mentally ill.  On Saturday, February 8, 2014, I was in the Detroit area, and I was flipping through the channels or "spinning the dial" (which is an old term), and I ended up on the World Channel, which WTVS-HD began to carry on 56.2 (a subchannel) recently, and the time was the first half-hour of the seven o'clock hour in the evening, and an episode of Moyers & Company was being fed to television sets in the Detroit area.  It was a program that pushed nonsense and rottenness, which at least some viewers probably thought was important and useful information.  The host was Bill Moyers, a communist and a support of the Democratic Party, and the guest was Bill McKibben.  It was the first time that I ever saw Bill McKibben, who for years has been an "environmentalist" and who received part of his education from Harvard University (which pushes out communism and idiot people out into the world).  I did not run a tape to record the show, deciding soon while watching that I could not put up with much of the crap that was being pushed out by Bill McKibben.  In addition, my judgment of his persona gave me the impress that he is a continually angry man and is mentally ill.  Add to my visual assessment of the man, I heard nonsense coming out of his mouth.  He pushed the idea--in relation to "carbon"--we have to "...get off at lightning speed...."  The man was pushing emotion and idiocy and panic.  He pushed the idea that 80 percent of the world has has had "climate disasters" recently, proving there is manmade global warming tied to using fossil fuels, and I say that the statement proves nothing about manmade global warming.  His main theme was the world--really the United States of America--has to get away from using coal and oil and making oil pipelines.  And he talked about "crazy" weather episodes, which I say that the world has had forever--storms come and bad weather happens.  By the way, when I hear some people talk about manmade global warming, they try to tie in earthquakes and more volcano eruptions to the subject, and I report that, man's using "carbon"-based fuels has no relation to erupting volcanoes or earthquakes, except that, when volcanoes erupt, they do put out, for instance, carbon dioxide and ash (in essence, dirt), and each eruption puts a lot--a lot--of carbon in some form.  I did not see the start of the next program, which began at 7:30 p.m. (Detroit time), but I returned to the channel at about 7:40 p.m., and the channel was carrying a program from "NHK World" entitled Asia This Week, and the program was into a segment about manmade global warming, and the program talked about a convention (somewhere), and it sounded like more nonsense.  The episode of "Asia This Week" did have a segment about a volcano eruption in Indonesia recently.  While I watched the program, I saw a segment about children in Japan learning about other cultures and languages, and I saw a number of shown people wearing white medical masks (when it not what you see in the United States of America), and I saw a segment about a movie called Camp 14, which is a fact-based movie about a North Korean young man who had lived in a prison camp--a slave camp--in North Korea since birth (he was born there, and because of his parents had committed so-called transgressions against the North Korean government, he was born into the slave life and was expected to stay there till he died, for simply have been born of parents to did some transgressions against the North Korean government).  North Korea is a rotten place, run by communists--"enslavists."  While I saw the segment about Camp 14, I thought about Bill McKibben, the communist, and I could see him wanting people to live in a slave society--in communes and in primitive settings.  The edition of Asia This Week came off as at least an episode that pushes socialism and nonsense, but it did present the segment on Camp 14, which was good to do. Oh, the following day, I looked up information about Bill McKibben; for example, I went to his website (billmckibben.com), and I found more evidence that Bill McKibben is rotten, given the thoughts presented on the website.  Yes, at the very least, I can say that, during the seven o'clock hour in the evening on February 8, 2014, I saw some very rotten people--Bill McKibben and Bill Moyers--on television, offered up by the World Channel and Detroit Public Television (the operators of WTVS-HD and the subchannels of it).

    Oh, did you catch at least one problem with the episode of Elementary (a series on CBS-TV) that was showed on Thursday, January 30, 2014.  During the episode, Sherlock was trying to drill a hole in to a human skull, and every time he tried to start, he was interrupted.  For the last attempt (in the presentation), he began by putting a drill bit in the drill.  Why did that happen?  A drill bit was already in the drill in the previous several attempts.  The incident did not make sense.  Why would Sherlock have taken out the drill bit in the past before finishing his drilling work?  Oops!

    Remember: The Prisoner with Patrick McGoohan was a television show that was produced across the pond and shown on CBS-TV in the late 1960s, and I urge you to find The Prisoner on DVD, maybe from a library, and watch it, and you should show it--all the episodes--to teenagers, or buy it as a present for teenagers.

Stay well!
