Didn't he make a movie where his co-star was an orangutan?

I'm grateful that Clint didn't make it an orangutan trilogy.

teenage twits - leave it to Clint to say something like that. Although I always thought the nation was getting older with the aging of the baby boomers. Maybe he's talking about baby boomers that refuse to grow up?

Winston Churchill arguably the most influential individual shaping the 20th Century always felt he had let his father down...Get over it! The world changes! The changes are good! (At least to some.) Please let's not sit on the sidelines and hoot.
