These two photos mean the world to me. Both Nolan North and Charles Martinette are incredible voice actors for some of my favorite games and were more than generous with their time. They both had fantastic stories to tell and truly encouraging words for my son who is working on his YouTube channel. Jack @therealjacksepticeye , you are also an inspiration to him, well, to us both and I wanted to say CONGRATS on 11 million subs from myself and Creeperfan12

The beauty of television is the sense that, unlike any other medium, you develop relationships of such depth and length, more so than films or even theater. You see these crewmembers that work so hard and give so much and help contribute and collaborate to make the show what it is. You see them more than your own family. So the bonds are really deep. There are a lot of people on that show that I’m going to miss a great deal. - Josh Charles.


Charles Kinsey was trying to protect Arnaldo Rios (pictured), who is autistic, when Kinsey was shot by a North Miami police officer. WPLG

“…The 90-year-old city is one of the largest in Miami-Dade County and is host to a melting pot of residents, many of whom are black and Haitian American. The city is about 59 percent black, 27 percent Hispanic and 12 percent non-Hispanic white according to U.S. Census data. The City Council includes two white members and three Haitian-American councilmen, including Mayor Smith Joseph. The city manager, city clerk and city attorney are all black.

Black Lives Matter activists held a protest at the North Miami Police Department on Thursday, July 21, 2016 in reaction to the shooting of unarmed mental healthcare worker Charles Kinsey.

…While the city’s police force has faced crime issues and its share of homicides and burglaries, it had not dealt with many police-involved incidents before an officer shot Kinsey, a black unarmed mental healthcare worker who was tending to his patient, Arnoldo Eliud Rios Soto, who wandered from a nearby mental health center. Monday’s shooting happened in a mostly quiet, suburban part of the city lined with’50s- and ’60s-style homes and smaller apartment complexes.

The mayor, who has held the position since November 2014, said the city will let the police investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the State Attorney’s Office take its course and called the incident a sad day for North Miami.

‘I assure you that we will go wherever the truth takes us and necessary decisions will be made by the proper authorities,’ Joseph said at a press conference Friday afternoon.

At a press conference Thursday afternoon, John Rivera, president of the Miami-Dade Police Benevolent Association, said that the North Miami police officer thought Kinsey was in danger, attempted to shoot Soto and missed his target.

On Friday, the police identified Kinsey’s shooter as officer Jonathan Aledda, placed him on leave, and also placed newly promoted Commander Emile Hollant on unpaid leave, saying he had misled investigators.

…Vice Mayor Alix Desulme said he supports the chief and also sent his sympathy to the Kinsey family. Kinsey left Jackson Memorial Hospital late Thursday night and is recovering at home.

‘Our hearts go out to the family, and we’re doing the best we can to come to a resolution,’ Desulme said….” Lance Dixon, Miami Herald

“The mother and sister of an autistic man who apparently was the intended target of a North Miami police officer’s bullet said they are worried about the safety of their 26-year-old family member.

Arnaldo Rios is suffering from emotional distress and has been in a hospital since Monday’s shooting of unarmed therapist Charles Kinsey, Miami attorney Matthew Dietz said Saturday at a news conference.

Dietz said Miami has inadequate facilities for people like Rios, and he said the police should have been trained to handle someone with mental illness.

‘After they knew that he had autism, what did they do? They threw him on the ground,’ Dietz said.

…Dietz said Rios viewed Kinsey as a father figure.

The North Miami Police Department identified the officer who pulled the trigger as Jonathan Aledda. The 30-year-old officer has been placed on administrative leave.

A second police officer, Cmdr. Emile Hollant, has been suspended without pay for giving conflicting statements about the circumstances surrounding the controversial shooting of Kinsey, City Manager Larry Spring said….” Peter Managing Editor

November 10th 1898: Wilmington Insurrection

On this day in 1898 the Wilmington Insurrection began in Wilmington, North Carolina. The insurrection, which lasted several days, saw a white supremacist mob of around 2,000 Democrats illegally overthrow the elected local government; this therefore makes it the only coup d'état in American history. The violence occurred against the backdrop of post-Reconstruction North Carolina politics, when Democrats sought to retake the state from Republican rule. They successfully won the state from the Republicans in the November 1868 elections through a campaign of intimidation, voter suppression and appealing to white racial prejudices. Soon after the statewide elections, the mob descended on Wilmington to remove the last vestiges of biracial Republican government. In the violence that ensued, the mob attacked African-American newspaper buildings and black citizens, eventually killing over 50 and driving hundreds more out of the town. Before the insurrection, Wilmington had a majority-black population, and a small but thriving African-American middle class; after the insurrection, Wilmington became a majority-white town. After the coup the mob’s leader Colonel Alfred Moore Waddell was elected mayor of Wilmington, and the new Democratic leadership in North Carolina swiftly enacted racial segregation laws and voting restrictions targeted at African-Americans, including a poll tax and discriminatory literacy tests. Charles Waddell Chesnutt’s 1901 novel The Marrow of Tradition featured a fictionalised account of the Wilmington insurrection which, with more accuracy than contemporary portrayals, showed the riots as having been initiated by whites against the town’s African-American population. In the 1990s, the town of Wilmington began to investigate and come to terms with this brutal chapter in its history and its devastating effect on the local African-American community.

Philippossian & Co. 1920. Charles Loupot.

35 ¼ x 50 7/8 in./89.5 x 129.2 cm

“Whereas Loupot’s first posters were drawn with the printer in mind, in this case we have testimonies of a direct relationship between the artist and the advertiser. Jean-Marie Loupout, who met Ch. Phillipossian in the Seventies, had confirmation of the meetings and friendly discussions that preceded the creation of [this poster]. Be that as it may be, the result is very felicitous …  As for the presence of the animal in the cigarette poster, it serves as a wink to the industrialist, a prominent amateur racehorse devotee” (Loupot/Zagrodzki, p. 57). Thierry DeVynk points out that “the artist put the entire figure in the top half of the sheet: this Bedouin with slender fingers, with seductive eyes reminiscent of the silent film images, and the black horse all add to the Oriental feel.” (Loupot/Lyon, N6).
