March 10, 2010 – On traveling without travel.

I’ve never been to India. And that makes me like most Americans. I was so impressed by this film, because it gave me a powerful narrative to start to explain this part of the world. Today, I RID it in … Continue reading

November 14, 2010 – Sometimes old friends disappoint.

I love “It’s always Sunny in Philadelphia” — I find it to be the new standard bearer in inappropriate, laugh-out-loud comedy on television. I gotta give the credit to Danny Devito – I’m not sure I’ve disliked ANYTHING he’s been … Continue reading
