Oil enters La. marshes – from 2theadvocate.com


The effects of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill are continuing to grow. Forget about the miles wide plumes of oil floating under the surface, choking all sea life in its wake. Forget about the oil hitting the loop current and being shipped through the Florida Keys and into the Gulf Stream in the Atlantic.

The crisis at hand now is that oil is entering Louisiana’s coastal marshes – the brackish home to most of the gulf coast’s fisheries.

What if Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang was made today?


We were driving home from a lovely Mother’s Day breakfast when our discussion turned to the movie Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang and how it really is several movies/stories all rolled into one, and if the movie was made today, it would probably be broken up into several movies, like Star Wars or Harry Potter.

We wondered what the titles of these movies would be.  Here’s some of what we came up with:

  • Chitty-Chitty-Chitty
  • Son of Chitty-Chitty
  • Return of the Chitty
  • Revenge of the Bang-Bang
  • Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang: Final Chapter
  • Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang and the Temple of Doom
  • The Chitty-Chitty Conspiracy

If it became a TV show on cable, some possible titles:

  • Chitty Goes To School (Disney)
  • iChitty (Nick)
  • It’s the Great Pumpkin Chitty Bang-Bang (ABC Family)
  • The Big Bang-Bang Theory
  • CCBB: Miami

Any other ideas?
