Let us save you $10 this Weekend

Don't view any further if you don't want to read a huge spoiler for the new Jodie Foster movie "Flight Plan." You have been warned.

Surf over to DebbieSchlussel.com and read her review. Seems this production has four scary looking arab passengers, complete with evil villain music and such, appearing to lay the groundwork to hijack a plane in flight. But it turns out that the real hijackers are a flight attendant and a Federal Air Marshal! The movie even ends with one of the arabs handing Jodie Foster back her purse that she had lost during the battle to save the plane. Shame on you for suspecting the arabs! You racist! You bigot! Everyone knows that flight attendants and air marshals are the epitome of evil. Go read the review - Ms. Schlussel rips hollywood a new one. (hat tip to Little Green Footballs)

UPDATE: Blackhawks win 3-2 in a shootout vs the Minnesota Wild

UPDATE II: Of course, bleeding heart liberal roger ebert gives this tripe 3 1/2 stars. What a moron this guy is. The Tribune's Michael Phillips gave it two stars.

ALLAH AKBAR!

This is nothing new to the Great Hollywood Satan. In both cinema and television, they consistently cast Caucasians as the "bad guys" who are idenitified by minority witnesses, arrested by minority authorities to be brought before minority judges.

Generally, Hollywood has an ultraliberal agenda that is in stark contrast with reality.

They are even more outrageous than the mainstream national news media in selectively perpetuating this insanity known as "political correctness".

What about all these films in which Afro-Americans are portrayed as criminals? Where is the outcry from Debbie Schlussel? She is one of the most anti-Arab, she says anti-Islamic terrorist, columnists around.

Just like the tagline from the old horror movies, just keep saying....It's only a movie...it's only a movie.

hmmmm....how can i get a female cop orgy joke in here?

Will the jag who keeps talking about this female P.O. orgy thing in D.C. cut it out. You are probably some rub sitting in front of your computer in your tightie whities pissed off at some female for giving you the cold shoulder or leaving your ass. Cut it out already, it is old. Stop fabricating the b.s. stories which we all know you would definitely not get an invite to anyway; even if they did take place.

What position?

My understanding is that Velazques is an HDO member, and Daley may be trying to distance himself and department heads from the HDO. See, e.g., this morning's stories about this week's Official A... Victor Reyes, Esq.

Last week's Official A was supposedly Blago, this week Reyes? Someone should come up with a drinking game called "Guess Official A!"

Anyway, if Daley is distancing himself from the Jackson/Meeks churches, than I'm guessing Trotter is gonna be toast. And if he sees the need to distanc himself from the HDO, than 3 or 4 remaining department heads including Velazquez may be toast.

The "Sullivan" that was indicted yesterday is supposedly a close associate of Jeremiah Joyce too.

The Feds should do a family tree for that guy and see how EVERYONE in his family, all the way out to 3rd cousins, earns a living off of taxpayers. That would itself justify 3 anti-corruption squads.

Anyway, what's this guy's new position at the OEMC?

3 number one villians in Hollywood:

1. White politicians

2. White policemen

3. White military officers

limpdickisthebest should stick to PBS and his hero Well Fed Ted Kennedy talking to the cameras from an empty Senate chamber.

Broaden your horizons boys. The thread was about political correctness in the movies and not wanting to offend minorities. It took four posts to start the department gossip.

Are you so wrapped up in your jobs that you cant talk about anything else but slamming each other and the "Job".

There is a big world out there, check it out. There is more to life than the Chicago police department.

SCC, how can you back the Hawks considering they have the tightest owner in Chicago sports, possibly in the history of Chicago sports.

He does not allow home games to be televised and those alleged "cheap seats" they bragged a few weeks back are in fact the worst seats in the house.

Finally, not that i would enter, maybe you could have a contest to take a poster to a game. Winner buys the beers of course.

Commander Sullivan detailed to Detached services (unit 543) . From there deailed to OEC to work on Homeland Security ie..evacuation plans.

Well I for one am glad if they have seriously detailed someone to worry about evacuation plans. I'm one of the regular anonymous snipers here, but I would love to see Chicago show the best evacuation readiness in the world.

I suspect its partly due to my sniping here that the Chicago Tribune ran that article two weeks ago, where Huberman (who now has nothing to do with emergency anything) was forced to stumble and mumble something like "we got a plan, a great plan, we're always updating the plan, but its a secret plan, and nobody knows about the plan but me, but its great, great I tell ya".

And I suspect that the city is beginning to realize what a gaping readiness gash this is after 9/11 (evacuating Manhattan) and Katrina (evacuating New Orleans).

As a few tips and clues, if anyone knows the commander (I'm being serious here), please let him know that a few people at the OEMC have been looking at this stuff (as much as their job will allow without running into a stupidity ceiling) for several years. If he assembles the top 30 people in the building, 3 or 4 have at least considered the issue and entertained ideas.

Unfortunately, nobody there was ever authorized or instructed to come up with an outline of procedures (as far as I know).

Also, the Commander should seek out and check with the National Guard officers in the CPD. My understanding is that some parts of the military/NATO have studied and simulated how to evacuate urban areas.

Anyway, I sincerely hope this is a real effort to put something on paper that can be at least partly simulated. This is one project and mission I will do everything I can to support.

What does all this have to do with the movie "Flightplan"?

Check out the evacuation plans from Japan in the 50's. Every week a major city was evacuated because of a new Giant Worm or Monster, RODAN - MOTHRA - etc. They used Trains, Planes, Military Trucks, Buses. Did'nt New Orleans see any of these training films. Come on, you can rent them at any Video Store. OEMC could learn from this also. I'll bet King Richie saw these movies!

Tell us the plan, Mr. Mayor.

I know this has nothing to do with the topic but I gotta vent and I figured this is the place. Ya know what really gets my goat and I wish the FOP would do or say something about this.
I just saw a piece on TV in which the City says that crime is down citywide. Now thats all fine and dandy but ya know what they contribute this to? COMMUNITY POLICING! WTF! Community Policing has NEVER prevented or solved a crime but yet these dweebs that are fearful of loosing their inside spots will give CAPS the credit for anything or everything just so long as they are able to promote this nonsense to the public. All CAPS does beside spending a ridiculous amount of money with no return, is insulate the Mayor from an irate public by forcing us to take the heat for his failed or corrupt policies. Oh yea, I forgot. It also allows the City to employ the otherwise unemployable. What about giving credit to those that are responsible for the reduction in crime, those boys and gals in blueshirts that go out everyday and toil in the trenches inspite of the fact that they are under equipped, ill prepared and not supported by those that send them there in the first place? When is the last time you heard Cline or anybody else with a gold star say that the the reason crime is down is because of the blueshirts in the Patrol Division? Can't remember can you? Neither can I and thats the sad part. FWIW, I think you guys are doing a hell of a job out there. Thanks.

If they were "serious" about disaster planning at OEMC, would they put a lunatic, drunk in charge? As far as your thought of the top 30-40 guys in the building, what he should actually do is DUMP em and bring in some real coppers! And I'm sure he really values the opinion of a bunch of weekend warriors. Get over yourself dude

To 9:23, the people who thump their chests and debate who are the "real coppers" are typically the dime-bag chasers anywhere.

If this city wanted competent real coppers to competently present a competent emergency plan, they'd go to New York City. Hiring and promotion in this city eliminate 80% of the crowd here, and the other 20% either lack leadership or morale.

I generally agree with you about the top 30 or 40 there. My thinking is that there are (or were) a few who could do this. Just like there are (or were) a few in the CPD who could do this. They were promoted by accident, but they are out there.

Don't know the 016 commander from a hole in the wall, so if he's a drunk or whatever, it just falls in line with the way the rest of this department is run and managed. Go figure.

There are a few out there, it just ain't damn likely that any of them are exempt.

When he's sober, Neil Sullivan is a posterboy for incompetent nitwits and exempt political hacks.
He'd have problems evacuating himself.

I love those old Clutch Cargo cartoons, kind of remind of the Mayor's press conferences. Kline is Spinner and Huberman is Paddlefoot.

Real nice. I hope that made you feel important, calling other coppers pieces of shit based upon where they work. Feel like a big man now? You ought to be ashamed of yourself. But probably not because people like you never are. And no, I don't work in 016, and yes, I've heard the stories. But I would nevr label a group of Police Officers in the way you have done.
Wonder why we never get any respect from the public? The above poster is the reason why. We don't even respect ourselves, why should they?
