R.I.P. Rip

Elmore Rual “Rip” Torn Jr. (February 6, 1931 – July 9, 2019) passed away yesterday. He was 88.

Things I did not know: Rip Torn was Sissy Spacek’s cousin.
Things I just made up: Rip Torn got his nickname from his ability to fart loudly seemingly at will.

This is an open thread.

I used to get the two Rips confused with each other.

    The buzzer on his NYC apartment read Torn Page when he was married to Geraldine Page.

      Something so sick about predators of children. There are plenty of willing women who look young, but are over 18, even over 21, who would ” hang out” with the mega rich and powerful. Yes, it’s horrible that women are still perks of the wealthy and powerful, but those women are available.
      But no. These sick fucks must have children. Teens, that we know of, and possibly even younger, that we don’t. It’s intolerable.

      I caught part of Acosta’s news conference online this afternoon via Facebook. The trolls were out in force, they already have their marching orders. The talking point of the day was President Pedophile DJT. There has to be a lot of coordination going on backstage for so much outright slander of our president being broadcast already.

      ALWAYS use ddg. Every time.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        DDG has its own search app for iPads/iPhone and I assume android. It is really nice. No history to erase. If you want to return to a page you have to leave it open or bookmark.

    • John Denney says:

      I’m skeptical. I just did the google search and it showed plenty of clinton epstein photos.

      And my understanding is that DDG just anonymizes your google search so you don’t get tracked.

    My aunt’s wrist is broken as are almost all of the little bones in her hand. We will know Monday if surgery is required, or if she can heal naturally.

    Meanwhile, she got a chest-xray as a follow up to the congestive heart failure from earlier this year, and we’re waiting for results on that. I’m not too worried…she’s done really well and her O2 levels are good, but it will be nice to make that official.

    • helenk3 says:

      glad to hear good news

    • lyn says:

      How much pain is she in? Does she still have feeling in her hand (which means no nerve damage)?

      I get the CT scan for my wrist and hand today, and then my appointment with the orthopedic surgeon to review the results is Sept. 10. That’s how busy she is. The scheduler first told me I’m on the cancellation call list before she told me my appointment date.

    • lateblum says:

      Poor auntie mir. I’m sorry she’s had a tough year. I hope she won’t need surgery on that hand. But if she does, then I hope it is wildly successful.

    • blowme0bama says:

      Sorry bout your Aunt. I’ve got two Aunts who aren’t in the greatest shape either.

    • Somebody says:

      My goodness Miranda, your Aunt has had quite the run of health issues 🙁 I’m glad to hear her O2 levels are good. I hope she won’t need surgery, but if she does I hope it’s successful.

      Hand surgery is very delicate, it’s an art form almost. Should she need surgery keep that in mind.

      (OT, kind of) There is a surgeon at Mayo JAX, or at least there was a decade ago, who is one of those gifted surgeons with the delicacies of the hand. Nice man, nice looking too. He treated my father years ago. His assistant told me he was abandoned in a parking lot as a newborn in the dead of winter. He was found thankfully and adopted. That was pre Roe v Wade. While true not every unwanted child might turn out to be a gifted surgeon , musician or scientist, but some might. Hadn’t thought about him in years, but your post jogged my memory, sorry to go OT.

      Your Aunt is so blessed to have you, prayers for you both that you have good news on the horizon and your Aunt heals quickly and skates through the rest of the year!

      • Miranda says:

        Yeah, it’s been a health-issue year for us all, although Aunt is currently winning for seriousness. mr.mir had a bad tooth infection and the bronchitis, and the vitreous membrane at the back of my eye detached with no warning. Currently, we’re just trying to make it through 2019 and reset in 2020.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      Wishing for the best for the aunties. Been there, the problems seem to come in 🌊 Like tsunamis.

    Someday the story of my drive from Andorra back home will be funny. Today is not that day. I saw the Mediterranean for the first time. Nice, except that I live a bit south of Paris. Most epic wrong turn ever.

  13. SHV says:

    I read where Acosta said that ten years ago, a Florida jury might have let Epstein off the hook because the “girls” were willing participants….14, 15, 16 y/o willing?? I called bullshit on that until I looked at the Florida Sexual Battery Law:

    “If the rape victim is under the age of twelve, the prosecutor does not have to show the victim’s lack of consent; the victim’s young age presumes the lack of consent. If the rape victim is over the age of twelve, the prosecutor must show that the victim did not consent voluntarily. Under Florida state laws, the prosecutor needs to show a lack of consent, but does not need to show resistance or protest.”

    IANAL but 12 y/o?? WTF???

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      If a 12 yo can consent to an abortion why not sex?

      • elliesmom says:

        I think there should be one age of consent for everything. Call it the “age of reason” or something like it. Choose an age where a person should be old enough to make an informed decision. Then hold everyone to it. It might be 16, or it might be 30. I really don’t care what age gets picked. Just choose an age, and then hold everyone accountable for anything and everything they do from that point on. No sex, no booze, no cigarettes, no drugs, no abortions, no driving, no voting. Nothing. No privilges, no adult pleasures until you accept adult responsibility. I’d even be open to having different people have different ages, but as soon as you take on an adult behavior, you get responsibility for everything.

      • helenk3 says:

        just read today that schools in California will allow kids time off to get an abortion without notifying parents.
        I have a very large problem with that

      D.C. has presented a 9 million dollar bill to PT for the 4th. I think he should just take it out of one of those huge specials bundles of money 💰 The feds pay out each year to the city that whines more than Megan McCain and the Bitties of the view.

      GoFundMe Update 11 Posted by Andy Ngo 7 hours ago

      The original fundraising campaign that Michelle Malkin kindly started for me while I was hospitalized, is now over. Thank you all for standing by me. I will use those funds for my medical costs, therapies, security, and replacing stolen and damaged equipment. Funds not used for those purposes will go toward pursuing justice for what happened that day. This may include legal counsel and support for advice and representation for any issues that arise from the assaults. Thank you so much.
