1. Yes, and they've been doing it these past months

We saw the trailer for Scaramouche (an awful film!) they ran last night between Lon Chaney features, and I started laughing hysterically. "Oh, that is no accident," I said to the spouse. He didn't get it at first, and so I said, "Scaramucci?" and he began laughing too.

They were running films that had to do with immigrants during the immigration ban brouhaha, etc. It's subtle, but watch closely. There's method in the madness!

2. I'm a firm believer in the notion that there's no such thing as "coincidence"...

3. Coincidence means you haven't been paying attention

to the other half of what's going on.

(From a book I love, written in 1968 - Stand on Zanzibar.)

4. I've never heard that quote before...

 

...but I'll definitely be using it going forward.

Thanks for posting it...

5. Ben Mankiewicz is pretty funny on Twitter,

and if he had anything to say about it I doubt it is a coincidence.
