Very Long Engagement dont wait to see it

Movie Review Don’t go to “A Very Long Engagement,” which stars Audrey Tatou, with the idea of being treated to a second “Amelie,” even though the director, star, and several cast members are the same as in that delightful little comic love story.

Mothers, daughters and Social Security

OPINION If anyone tries to tell you that young people don’t care about Social Security, don’t believe them. Being in my 30s, I no longer consider myself “young,” but I am still a long way off from retirement age.

A national crisis needs a national solution

OPINION In “Health care: beyond markets” PWW Dec. 18-24, George Silver nailed the disaster that market-driven health care has brought to our nation.

He pointed out that preventive investments are almost nonexistent.

How should we honor Martin Luther King?

OPINION I was offered the opportunity to attend the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Breakfast in Saint Petersburg, Fla., and join members of the local Democratic Party to “honor” King. The speakers at this event never discuss anything that might reflect on how our Prince of Peace would condemn this brutal imperialist war. I had to speak out. Save a life, be able to look in a mirror, and be pleased at who you are. Don’t let a day pass without some effort against this criminal war. Below is my reply to the invitation.

OPINION I live in America, the land of the free and the home of the brave, and its free, brave soldiers are everywhere on the march killing people to liberate them in Iraq, protecting hand-picked dictators while allowing narco-terrorists to flourish all across Afghanistan and Pakistan, and doing the darkest possible work imaginable in Colombia, which would be front page news if they weren’t bleeding to death in the cities and sands of Iraq by the hundreds every month. I am looking at a broken-back negative of what it means to be an American. I am an American in a tortured state.
