OUT ORIGINALLY IN 1956
My interest in Temujin/Genghis Khan and Mongols as well as nomads ( no idea of Conan then ) in general goes back to this time. I turned 10 years old in Sept. of that year and saw this movie with Bobby Louf , a local boy and classmate in downtown Salem ,MA our hometown. We would have been in fifth grade that Fall of 1956. Parents just assume the movies were clean and okay for general audience.Heck John Wayne was in it. What could happen. (more of this and other reviews at the link).

This is a good read on oil ... and congress. A lot of thinking people see an end to the oil bubble soon - mainly because of the high prices -- which in a free economy always causes (guess what?) lower prices. The replies to this article are also instructive.

The front of a tanker ship falls off at sea and the escaping crude oil burns off. This news exchange is amazingly funny and reminiscent of "whose on first". The video is a spoof of an interview with a senator. The event actually happened in the 90's.
