no greatest threat is totally fake news by the very biased MMS outlets like the Independent and even worse Clinton News Network - they purposely provoke violence with their fake/biased news and staged promotions, they encouraged the war in Syria, the war in Libya, Iraq etc.

yes it cos he the most talented male player to ever play, on the female side reckon it's Hingis, sure Graf/Serena won far more, but they just didn't hit the ball like her.

It's not up to him to define what presidential means.
 
The words 'crazy' and 'low-IQ' seem appropriate.

wow what an original criticism of Trump, must've taken such analysis and thought to come up with that and how surprising, not a single post/word about Hillary, what a good example of sour grapes that TRUMP WON!!!

but in the bit I heard of that clip, his employees give him a 90% approval rating as boss - does he pay very well and so people let off the awful medical plan etc or something?

If you do a google search like Sampras is incomplete then you will be able to read the article, it is the first item listed in the google search.

wouldn't bother, the journo is obviously a total idiot and the article completely wrong, you can tell by the title, some kind of desperate, weak disparage of the most important 6 consecutive years record.

Probably not. She isn't you. And besides, she probably feels guilty about giving him throat cancer.

I don't discuss movies as much. And yes I have watched almost all the Hitchcock classics and bunch of film noir and movies from the 30s 40s, 50s and 60s and really like them. Does that count? Ever since I have had kids, I don't have the time or inclination to keep watching more and more movies. But I am listening to a whole lot of music (these days listening a lot of Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Dvorak, Bruckner, Mahler, Vivaldi etc)

I seriously doubt that. She has had kids with him and has been with him for many years now.

Didn't they separate at one time and then allegedly get back together?

Obviously, they weren't elated with one another at one point? He seems like a real prick to me.

I see. All couples who have kids are happy? Tell that to the over 50% of the couples (most with kids) who divorce.

I thought World of Apu was good, and perhaps most accessible of Apu
Trilogy for the western viewer.
 
However it's the third part of the trilogy and the first is the best,
and also most Indian...
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0048473/reference
 
But I think World of Apu goes fine as standalone as well.

IMO, you might not like it as much as "The Big City". Did you see the first part of this trilogy, "Pather Panchali" ? If you haven't watched that one, you might not get the full context of this movie.
 
I would also suggest Ray's "Charulata", if you haven't already seen it.
 
I know you are not much into Indian movies, but you could try "Bombai ka Babu". It tackles a relationship theme rarely explored (and for good reason), but does so delicately.

That's a good tactic on second viewing.
