Churchill’s “Iron Curtain” at 65

It was a speech that rocked the world and changed history. By then, Churchill was no longer British prime minister. He and his conservatives had been replaced by Clement Attlee and the Labour Party, which busily nationalized everything under the sun, from car companies to healthcare, pursued Keynesian economic policies with reckless abandon, exploded the public sector, and piled debts that buried Britain for a generation.

Churchill was out, and Britain’s giant lunge leftward was in, enabled by an electorate that voted for “change.” Churchill and his work, however, were hardly finished. Worse, the West, complacent and tired of war, had no clue of the threat; it could not see the wolf at the door. So, at little Westminster College, on March 5, 1946, at the invitation of President Harry Truman, Churchill cut loose:

It takes a bright light, good eyes and a steady hand—or a clever device such as the Combination 3D Square from M-Powered Tools. It has a large saddle square built right in. The 3D Square also has a short, folding bevel gauge and an attachment for drawing lines parallel to an edge. The square’s main blade is 9" long and is set at precisely 90° (within 1/100° over 9", according to M-Power). You can reset the blade if you happen to drop the square and knock it out of alignment.

Signing you up! If you enjoyed this post... August 2010. By Steve Crum When I think of The Other Guys, like virtually any Will Ferrell movie, I think of Olympia Beer.

Except instead of the slogan, “It’s the water,” the Ferrell motto is, “It’s the writing.” This is more a negative than a compliment, since The Other Guys suffers from a premise that pays off in the first 10 minutes of the story. Up to that point, the writing is fun, fast, and full of broad parody. The remainder of the film has spurts of laughs, but is laden with a Will Ferrell central character purposely lackluster and dull. Writers Adam McKay (who also directed) and Chris Henchy deserve a little praise and a bunch of grief over their treatment. And that opening sequence, without ruining its gag, features Samuel L. The story kicks off with NYC police detectives Christopher Danson and P.K. Inevitably, the two get their chance on the street. Ferrell’s forte, in fact, is the overextended joke or shtick.
