The timing of the paper’s release suggests it may be part of a larger federal plot to kill AFS altogether--clearing the way for a USPS takeover. Feb 11, 2014 8:33 AM PT

'Homicide' Creator Uses Slavery to Trash Constitution, Founding Fathers

Let me first praise David Simon for his terrific book, "Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets," which spawned one of the greatest American TV series, "Homicide: Life on the Street.

Why We Love Hannibal, Tony Soprano and Walter White

'Prisoners' Squanders Theological Potential, Embraces Nihilism

I thought Crash was the worst movie Hollywood could make that bamboozled critics and audiences into thinking it was something “important”, never mind “entertaining”, and “Best Picture”.  Now comes Prisoners, a relentlessly grim, ponderous tutorial in amateur character and plot construction that is too clever by half, champions nihilism, mocks faith, and is ultimately an unredeemable exercise in despair.

'Sleepless in Hollywood' Review: Producer Chronicles Hollywood's Tech-Driven Decline

The Politics of Apocalyptic Cinema: Embracing Hope in Hopeless Scenarios

Apocalypse is derived from the Greek, meaning “revelation.” Indeed, it is within the Apocalyptic narrative that audiences are provided with a revelation as to the nature of mankind when all appears lost. It’s important to examine how they differ because these stories, perhaps more than any other, reflect the values of our culture and--since Andrew Breitbart taught us that politics is downstream from culture--how it reflects the political environment. I see are two distinct categories of Apocalyptic Popular Culture: revelatory drama that affirms our humanity, and that which leaves us in despair. Apr 15, 2013 8:38 PM PT
