I am a Teamster and very involved in the union.  I’ve read Frank Sheeran’s account of his best friend’s demise and his involvement in the book, “I hear you paint houses”.  I can tell you this, most Teamsters I know already accept his account as the definitive answer to the question of “whatever happened to our Boss?”

Yeah I read it also.
I was given a bit of pause when he went on to claim the stuff about Kennedy.
If it was only Hoffa it's a slam dunk.
I believe him in the end though.
It's totally believable because of his association with both Hoffa and the Mob.
The Kennedy stuff I'm skeptical of.

Yeah, I felt the same way when I read the Kennedy stuff.  However, I feel it's not outside the realm of possibility that the alleged mob had played a role, i.e.-provided material goods on the hit of JFK.  But I don't believe they actually performed it.  With that being said, the absolute last person I think did it was Oswald, he was a total patsy (in my most humble of opinions, of course). 
     On a side note, a couple years ago I had the honor of being in Hoffa's office and was shown where Bobby Kennedy's window was across the road and was told how Kennedy would watch Hoffa with binoculars and how Hoffa would flip him the bird.  Also, I guess at one point Bobby K told his staff that no one was allowed to leave for the night until the lights went out in Hoffa's office, so the Boss would close the blinds, leave the lights on and go home.

On a similar note.
I didn't see this one coming.
John Travolta as John Gotti?
But it looks good in the trailer.

I guess I should be excited about this but I'm not.
James Cameron is going to be busy till 2025
IMDB shows this.
The first Avatar was OK I guess. I can think of worse things to waste a couple hours on but 5 of them?

2025 Avatar 5 (characters) (filming)
2024 Avatar 4 (characters) (filming)
2021 Avatar 3 (characters) / (written by) (filming)
2020 Avatar 2 (characters) / (screenplay) (filming)

But interestingly
2019 Untitled Terminator Reboot (characters) / (story) (pre-production)
Starring .... Linda Hamilton, Arnold Schwarzenegger

Will they ever make any new movies rather than additions to existing franchises?

Are you serious? Fuck. I mean, yeah, I saw Avatar in the theater since it was the big 3D thing. It was cool. I also paid out the ass for front row tickets to the Cirque de Soleil show based on the movie. But anytime I see four fucking sequels plotted out before the first one even hits the screens, my spider-sense goes off.

The only reason I can see is that Avatar is massively successful in India.
Avatar being a Hindu God (the blue dude)
I work with tons of Indian people and they were nuts for it when it came out.
It's almost a guaranteed payoff with the numbers.
This is also why we are seeing so many super hero things.
China and Japan are nuts over them.
