    More often reactionaries or neocnservatives of late, but one example of a New Deal Democrat who had a decent run was Helen Gahagan (Douglas), who served in the US House from California for three terms, but failed to beat some guy named Nixon in a less than noble Senate race.

    Meanwhile, I shall have to review the messages in this thread in search of recgnition of how the most detective-oriented films of late have featured kid detectives or criminals forced to become detectives (the latter including CRANK and SHOOT 'EM UP)...
