Even Donna Reed looked hotter as a spinster librarian

Watching It's A Wonderful Life last night, I wondered if I'm the only guy who finds Bedford Falls to be Wonderful_life a much more interesting town in its incarnation as Pottersville. I mean, look at all those businesses Jimmy Stewart runs past: bars, pool halls, taxi dancers, burlesque shows, strip clubs. (Oddly, there's also a little American Airlines office. Probably they had really hot stewardesses back then.) Even Martini's little joint, as Nick's, has switched over from Italian accordion music to boogie-woogie piano.

Whatever. Gotta go play with my new remote now, which enables me to tune every television in a 10-block radius to Friends reruns. Merry Christmas.
