It's OK. You can call me 'Number 2'

The Robinson Film Center, which opens May 3, is getting ready to send out its fancy-pants membership cards. RFC's Chris Jay assured me that they are going out within the next couple of weeks. (Hold your horses, members! It's opening soon enough and you'll get your cards in time.)

Being the egomaniac I like to think I am, I challenged Chris to an imaginary Rubik's Cube faceoff. I won, of course, and demanded he pony up my Dual Membership cards ($100/year) for press preview.

He unearthed these little treasures from his underground safe. The cards come in Denzel Washington, Charlie Chaplin and Marilyn Monroe forms. When Chris told me they were numbered, I of course asked him if I was getting "Number 1." Nope. I'm "Number 2." Robert Wagner be damned.

P.S.: Number 1, I know you're out there, and I will be throwing popcorn into your wineglass when the two-screen arthouse opens. Consider this my friendly, completely harmless, "Please don't arrest me for being a smartass, SPD" warning. Punk.

BE CAREFUL KENT!
CEDRIC GLOVER, CHIEF HENRY WHITEHORN, AND THE EX-CONS ON THE CITY COUNCIL WILL SOON BE CONSIDERING PASSING AN CITY ORDINANCE AGAINST WATCHING VIOLENT MOVIES. THEY WILL SAY IT WILL LEAD TO AN INCREASE IN CRIME IN SHREVEPORT. (BUT ITS OK TO SHOOT SOMEONE AT KOKOPELLIS, BECAUSE THAT'S JUST A PERCEPTION OF CRIME)

ALONG WITH SAGGY PANTS, TENNIS SHOES HANGING ON POWERLINES, AND CARS BEING PARKED "ILLEGALLY" ON PRIVATE PROPERTY, THE CITY COUNCIL HAS ITS PRIORITIES IN ORDER AND IS BEING PROACTIVE AGAINST "SERIOUS" CRIME.

NOTE: SHREVEPORT'S MURDER RATE IS UP 45% THIS YEAR, THANKS TO OPERATION TBONE, AND THE ZERO TOLERANCE TOWARD SAGGIN' PANTS, PARKED CARS ON PRIVATE PROPERTY, AND TENNIS SHOES ON POWERLINES.

I CAN'T WAIT FOR OPERATIONS PORKCHOP, RIBS,AND WATERMELON!

Number 2 is cooler. No. 6 would be the coolest. Go watch the The Prisoner.
