Wild and Crazy

So I'm playing around with The Oracle of Bacon generator, and I input Bruce Lee to see how many degrees of separation there are between the late actor/martial arts legend and actor Kevin Bacon. Much to my great surprise, it turns out there is only one actor that links Bruce Lee to Kevin Bacon (at least according to this generator). Even more surprising is who that actor is: Steve Martin.

It seems that Martin had a bit role in Bruce Lee's 1972 movie, Fist of Fury (Jackie Chan had a bit role in this move as well, but was uncredited). He, Martin, played a policeman.

As for Kevin Bacon, he had an uncredited part in Martin's 2001 film, Novocaine.

Pretty interesting factoid about Steve Martin, eh? I wonder if he ever got the chance to know Bruce Lee.

34 Years of Roe v. Wade

From the standpoint of constitutional law, it was an atrocity of a ruling then, and remains so today. At the very least, the Supreme Court should never have even agreed to review the case.

From a cultural/societal standpoint, what can I say? Since January 22, 1973, the United States has seen over 40 million children slaughtered in the womb.

Pray for us Holy Mother of God and Patron Saint of the Unborn.
