    Went to see THE POST last night and saw the trailers for the above. Not my cup of tea. Though the IMAGERY was certainly well done.

    (The POST was GREAT by the way).

    Here's some interesting trivia. The Black Panther character was created the same year that the Black Panther political party was formed, 1966. But he was actually created a few months before the party formed. They actually changed his name to Black Leopard to avoid association with them but that didn't last very long.

    He's not a hero at all. He has heroic qualities. He'd run into a burning building to save people. But he is way too ruthless and cynical to be considered a hero.

    Don't recall the punisher having any super powers.

    Just a really bad attitude....

    Sounds like these type of movies are pretty exciting. I was never into super heroes. Maybe I should have put aside my Archie and Jughead comics and checked them out.

As I stood there I caught a movement out of the corner of my eye. When I looked I saw a Black Panther walking away from me at about 100 feet to my right. I held my breath and prayed he didn't come after me. He never looked back. Being that I wore a prosthetic leg, I would have had no chance of getting away if he attacked. I'll never forget it. I've been scared before. Hell, I fought in Vietnam but I've never been that shaken before or since.

    I remember his tail dragging on the pavement behind him and his shoulders as they rose and fell when he walked. We put the house up for sale the next day. We had just moved in after a seven month wait as it was being built. I'd heard of brown panthers in Florida, they're quite common but I couldn't believe what I was seeing.

    Before we finally sold we saw Bobcats on our doorstep at night and we regularly saw eastern diamondback rattlesnakes crossing our street. Couple that with the lake that was in our back yard and the massive Gators we'd see every day and it was quite an experience.

    We now live in a developed area near the beach but we still see Bobcats quite often.
    Damn, we get gators and foxes and even deer around here (though rarer and rarer). Never seen a Florida panther. Went to back out of the garage one day to go to work and luckily popped the garage door BEFORE I got in the car. There was the biggest f'g turtle I've ever seen in person sitting on the driveway behind the car. Not anything I could have lifted. Watched him for a minute or 2 trying to decide what to do. Was about to call the security gate to see if one of the guards would come help me move him and he just crawled away.
