Bugs Bunny – 8 Ball Bunny

For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.

An evening pause: From 1950. Film buffs will especially get a laugh out of the reference to The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948).

    In spite of all the previous great music evening pauses, THIS is so good because it combines the selfish impulse with the human resolve, and may I say the the image we all are inspired from. Parallement, I have to say that mythical and hopefully always-remembered 20th-Century should be ….. Chuck Jones + Mel Blanc + Carl Stalling = the best of 20th Cen West Civ for all.
