Rather tough choice to see Indiana Jones pitted against Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

Normally, I would prefer real heroes over imaginary ones.

But there are tens of thousands of heroic Christian martyrs. And this is supposed to be a contest of great mythological heroes.

There is only one Indiana Jones.... And Harrison Ford is a real-life "man's man," if you know anything of his life story.

I was pleasantly surprised at how all of the matchups worked out in this round (in A & B) outside of Indy vs Bonhy and Samwise vs Beowulf. I thought those two matchups were sort of the outliers. I'm glad that at least someone finds it a tough choice, even if it doesn't quite make sense!

Well if nobody has heard yet a 76 year old Harrison Ford will start filming in Indiana Jones 5 in April 2019. Spielberg confirmed.

The Pope has expressed his view repeatedly that modern society forgets about the elderly, casting them aside rather than treating them with the compassion they deserve.

Try to be a part of the solution, bub.

And remember Clint Eastwood in Grand Torino.

That was almost on topic, Del. I'm going to give that a grudging "good job!"
