One of my guilty pleasures is the "Law and Order" shows. Just the Original and "Criminal Intent", though. There must be thousands of actors in the NYC metro area, since they've got to have gone through that many. Some actors are considered "exotic looking". Bette Davis when she was younger. Among today's performers, Penny Balfour is the tops.

In the L&W episode "Hubris", the bad guy is played by Tim Guinee, also border line exotic. Certainly smarmy this time around. During the trial portion of the episode, Guinee is self-lawyer while Balfour is jury foreman. He flirts openly with her. He gets acquitted. She pushes the jury to do so.

With a couple of minutes to go, she comes to see McCoy. Admits that she steered the jury. And that he dumped her right after the trial.
Gibbons (Balfour): "He did it, didn't he?"
Carmichael; "Yeah, he did."

The episode ends with the cops called to her apartment, with Morriston (Guinee) dead on the kitchen floor with a knife in his neck. Seems he attempted to garrot her while she was making dinner, with null effect.

Kavanaugh did it, and listening to Collins dance around the truth for an hour...

A while back, I heard something about cum laude graduations from Yale around the time Kavanaugh did. Basically, it was a Lake Wobegon sort of place. So, here's the data:

Last year [1987], 46.4 percent of all seniors graduated from Yale with general honors - 11 percent graduated summa cum laude, 11.5 percent magna cum laude and 23.9 percent cum laude. In 1986, 50.5 percent of the graduating class received honors.

How special they were.

Anyone who can watch the Kavanaugh Performance Art, a la Trump, and not immediately understand that Right Wingers are dangerous, deluded, verminous scum who care nothing for anyone outside their immediate family and tribe is blind as a bat.

Senator Collins probably gets her share of death threats from the right wing, the same would-be assassin mentality that issues death threats to the left or any opposition to the right wing.

she's full on Alzheimers.

moki, one of the hallmark's of the Right is the incredible speed in which they turn on their own, something you see almost nowhere else in humanity, though I don't necessarily actually consider them human.

Maui, your observation that "the hallmark of the Right is the incredible speed in which they turn on their own" is an observation of the wholly credible unholy phenomenon called Fascism: racist, militant nationalism (aka Trump's "patriotism policy") is the ideology supporting the #maga "Make America Great Again" banner that is twinned with #miga,  Make Israel Great Again.  As the Hawaiian here you claim to be and or support, i am baffled how it is you cannot identify more with the disenfranchisement of Palestine peoples than with Ashkenazim claims on Palestine.

The Ivy League colleges are pumping up grades. They're now 100% bullshit. They're vocational schools, as I imagine are 99% of other colleges. The so-called liberal arts colleges, including my alma mater, make a pretense of developing critical reasoning, yet they turn out conditioned robots on the Left and Right that parrot phrases from Hanity and Limbaugh and Ms. Maddow. Kavanaugh is just one more disgusting piece of garbage given the imprimatur of a prestigious university.
