This is a positive development for Gert. Being a cynical curmudgeon, I think this means that the prosecutors did not want Wilders introducing various critical deconstructions of the Koran as evidence where they could become part of Dutch case law. By not establishing a case precedent the prosecutors are free to go after the next unfortunate person who speaks similar politically incorrect truths.

Sheesh: This list must be a troll to get us to cite our faves. :) The monster from the id in Forbidden Planet is among the best ever. Made even better by the eerie electronic soundtrack. Alien. Who can forget the slime coated jaws on the end of the tongue or the face hugger and the larval alien that exploded from John Hurt's chest. Angry Red Planet: The rat-bat-spider-crab freaked me out when I was eight. Thank you Bob Wilkins. I had nightmares about that for a month.

In 2002 I rented a car at the Toronto Airport. I walked out to the lot and found myself looking at the most butt ugly minivan ever conceived. A Pontiac Aztec. OK. It's just a rental. Like a hotel room. I was surprised at how drivable this thing was around town. More headroom than my 4Runner, seated four adults comfortably and provided amusement to all due to its homely appearance. The real driving test came the following weekend. I hopped on the freeway to go see Niagara Falls. The Aztec had excellent freeway handling. The weather on the way back was wet. Toronto weather doughnut wet and I was outside the hole. The Aztec didn't squirrel around, it tracked straight, wind buffeting was far less than I expected, the wipers worked very well. That car earned my respect, and a few months later in a another blinding rainstorm outside of Kitchener I would have preferred the Aztec to any other car I had rented up there.

I turned off the first episode of Eleventh Hour after the first five minutes. I learned enough in that short time to know the show would suck. I liked Medium. I hope they find a way to make it work. I won't miss any of the rest.
