Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Back to the 1980s?

In the news today, Sylvester Stallone announced that he’ll make another "Rambo" movie. This, on top of the previously announced news that he’ll make another "Rocky" movie.

This might be taken as news that Hollywood has no new ideas. But look for Jay Leno to revive one of his old jokes, namely, that Stallone could do a "Rocky vs. Rambo" movie (and why not? Hollywood gave us "Alien vs. Predator"), in which Stallone would simply punch himself to death.

It also reminds me of the nickname we had for Peter Schramm out in Claremont in those days: "Schrambo."

Now back to work.

The truth is, I don’t think you have enough to do!

That is funny. I just got done watching Over the Top on HBO.

I hear the new Rocky movie is a sequel to Rocky III, and will be titled "Rocky III II."

Its amazing how nicknames can be passed down without even knowing it. Some of my friends at school call me Schrammbo as well.
