        This is supposedly "a startlingly accurate preview of what would eventually become the 'Star Wars' prequels." Yeah, might want to double-check the meaning of "accurate" there, HuffPo. This looks like the story that was hinted at for years, until 1999 turned it all upside down.

        Reading that.... I can't help but imagine the three of them passing around a doobie.

        I am have a strong feeling that Funyuns were also involved.

        Anyone read Animal Farm? Napoleon and Squealer seemed to find "documents" that proved all kinds of things true. Amazing.
        But I am looking forward to Rinzler's next SW book.

      Good ep. I found the criminals' masks an interesting choice, a cross between Insane Clown Posse and Killer Klowns from Outer Space.

      I also did a tiny upgrade on the helmet. Years ago when I got my TE2 Stormie lid from a US 501st member, he also included a set of solid welding lens

      Pro football? AGAIN?!? Oh yeah!

      NFL draft this year seemed more ho-hum to me. Steelers got some guys, other teams got some other guys, a guy from Germany is a Viking now.
