Honestly, my plan was to review a movie this week. I promise. But, we all know what God says about best laid plans. This week I won’t beat around the bush too much about the column’s contents: we’re going to discuss the State of the Union address, which is already really old news, but, I haven’t...
First off, I’ll apologize that this column is long – however, such an issue invokes the need to write, and write well, on a matter that so desperately needs to be addressed. Technically, I’m supposed to be reviewing a movie this week. But, it just so happens that we had not only a national...
You may know by now that this column is on a rotation of reviewing film one week, and then focuses on something another week. I reserved this right for myself for two reasons: first, to give myself some freedom as to what topics I write about, and second, to give me a break from spending time at...
Have you ever had that feeling where you think you’re the black sheep? I’ve had that, this week. Over the weekend my family and I saw the new “Dolittle” movie, starring Robert Downey Jr. as one of history’s most beloved fictional characters, Dr. Dolittle.

On January 8, CNN released a news article entitled, “The evolving US justification for killing Iran’s top general,” (Wolf and Stracqualursi).

Last week I mentioned that I went and saw the conclusion of the Star Wars saga, “Star Wars Episode IX – Rise of Skywalker.” I saw this movie on Saturday the 21st, early in the morning, though I was supposed to see it with my brother and a close friend the night before. It wasn’t meant to be,...
It’s another December, and that means another Star Wars movie review! I’ve said before that I’m a big fan of the Star Wars franchise, and that I very much enjoy watching those movies and finding deeper meanings through thematic elements. Star Wars is jam-packed with a lot of morality and...
Well, here we are again – two days before December 19. Two days before my birthday. I can’t really believe another year has come and gone so quickly – I barely feel 24, much less willing to give way to another year; a big year, a quarter of a century. Jeez Louise. Congratulations to me, I’ve...
It was just before 08:00 hours on Sunday, December 7, 1941 that our nation would be jarred into the events of Pearl Harbor and never be the same again. The sparkling waters of Honolulu, Hawaii, still to this day veil remains of the event that rattled the world, and would spur the United States of...
