Hillary: The film

A proposed biopic about Hillary Rodham Clinton doesn’t even have an official script yet, but that hasn’t stopped critics from lambasting NBC for even considering a movie about the possible 2016 presidential candidate.

And that’s not all. Former President Bill Clinton is said to be angry that a draft script he’s seen doesn’t include a love scene between him and swimsuit model Kate Upton.

The good German: Rochus Misch, who was Adolf Hitler’s devoted bodyguard for most of World War II, has died at age 96. To the end, Misch insisted he was proud of serving the man he affectionately called “the boss.”

Herr Misch, meet your new boss. He goes by the name of Beelzebub.

Don’t know much about history: On this day in 1963, the National Professional Football Hall of Fame was dedicated in Canton, Ohio.

The way football is headed, 20 years from now the facility will be renamed the National Professional Football Hall of Fame and Memory Care Center.
