WARNING: political tirade contained within!

One of the reasons I started to research LVC's life and career was to answer the question some of our fellow TBn members have also raised at various times: "Why wasn't Lee Van Cleef more successful?"

As I said (and you seem to agree), there are several -- if not many -- reasons. And that's why it will take an entire book to parse that issue...

Per the Other Issue at hand:

Yep, every week -- sometimes every day: high-powered journalist and political pundit Mark Halperin was just "outed" -- another "powerful" male's abuses come to light. ("Powerful" in quotes, because Sexual Abuse and Harassment is NOT about "sex": it's about the Abuse of Power. And the fact that these men -- only very, very rarely in statistical terms, do women behave this way -- feel compelled to dominate women in this manner, shows that these jerks actually *lack* True Power: self-confidence. If these twits had that, they wouldn't "need" to push women around or worse, assault them, to prove their "power".)

End rant! Sorry 'bout that, folx ---- I'm a bit of a News Junkie, and I guess I'm feelin' pretty angry, as this topic is flooding the journalism outlets right now. ;P

Let's just hope all the Celebrity Attention (on both sides of the issue) helps effect change among the Masses, too --- that's where the *real* damage is done: not to the 1%-ers, but to the average, every-day Woman tryin' to get thru her job, or walk down the street, or just "live" her life.
