Re: The Final Witness

I would say that being banned from Twitter is not evidence of saying racist things or being racist, only that she had consistently run afoul of critical race theory or intersectionality.

Re: The Final Witness

Most of those quotes look to me like she’s being acerbic or speaking in hyperbole to get noticed among the chatter that is social media or more specifically Twitter, and not exclusively statements that would come from a place of dislike of different races just because of their race. That being said...

I don’t know where you got 45 mil from. That would have been week 1. Obviously it had a lot more to go. I feel very confident that it would have crossed the 100 mil mark, and that’s not counting the world wide. By any standard I would say that’s a hit. $45 million USD was the movie's budget: ($42 m...

A lot of people have mentioned Mile High and Lone Star but has anyone used NewKadia?

Re: BAD IDEA

From what I remember, Ales Kot had a pitch for a Valiant book, but Warren wasn't sure whether he'd be a good fit for Valiant, so he let him write a mini (which one can easily ignore, or pretend is not in continuity) to see if he had a good handle on Valiant's characters.
