    I like how everyone’s talking about Colin Powell like he wasn’t a huge part of getting us stuck in a pointless 20 year war

    He was able to tidy up his reputation with a handful of borderline not-quite apologies and endorsed Obama twice and BOOM no harm no foul. Really something to behold. Oh and he had a bitchin Corvette, apparently.

    Holy shit, that’s satire right? I feel so annoyed… in any reasonable timeline, that would be an Onion article.

    I always respected Colin Powell. I thought him to be a fairly nonpartisan man of integrity who did the best he could in an area of statecraft that wouldn't exist in a more evolved society. He was a decorated vietnam vet. He was the first African American Secretary of State. He was the first Afro-Carribean, and youngest, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He was the top military man in dozens of conflicts aside from the ones that were on TV every night.
    He didn't APOLOGIZE for Iraq. He TESTIFIED that he was wrong by 04 and attempted to create new ways for the intelligence depts to share information.
    And as far as Afghanistan, I mean, yeah, you can blame him, I guess? But note that EVERY house Democrat and EVERY house Republican voted for the use of force in Afghanistan. And the vast majority of them CONTINUED to support it, for a long ass time. So, I'd assume they deserve some blame, too.

    I liked Colin Powell. I think he was a great military strategist, speaker, and author.

    Scott Bakula's statement: https://deadline.com/2021/11/dean-st...te-1234870757/

    What a career he had and what a life he led. RIP Dean; thank you for all the memories and we miss you already.

    FW De Klerk, last white South African President, the man who opened the door to ending apartheid and freed Nelson Mandela, with whom he shared a Nobel Peace Prize and a long friendship.

    He was ALSO kind of an awful bastard who benefited from some of the most draconian times of apartheid, said some fairly shocking shit about it AFTER retiring, and only apologized for it, finally, recently, when he was dying.

    I read a book about South Africa some years back; it's a fascinating ride.

    I was just getting into Quantum Leap. Stockwell helped make the show. He was perfect for that role and had a great chemistry with Bakula.

    Big Big Train vocalist/multi-instrumentalist David Longdon. Very sad at this news, he was a talented guy in a great band.
