This is post number 714 on this blog. 714 is special to me for two reasons: July 14 is Bastille Day and Joe Friday‘s badge number on Dragnet was 714. As children, my father would not allow us to watch Dragnet since he thought it was too violent. We saw it only when visiting neighbors. We recently saw The Avengers at the movie theater. There were half a dozen previews of similar nature before the movie started, which I enjoyed. I think that they used enough ammunition and explosives in those movies for a medium-sized war.
