The Chicago Black Sox might appear to be about as American a corruption as possible. Highly recent testimony to Chicago’s immortally blackened reputation, however, is here. God bless Ann Coulter!! Furthermore, after having channel-hopped two of the United States’ greatest
How can an actress from England who doesn’t appeal to me at all in interviews as her very British self — how can she so mesmerize me as a Canadian shiksa goddess of marital perfection in the film “Barney’s Version”?
It is splendid how Norman Rockwell’s “Freedom of Speech” is not only a double-edged sword but a spear-studded cannonball for world freedom as well. The Politico-inspired loud-mouthing about Herman Cain’s apparent indiscretion – or perhaps his avuncular bonhomie toward a
This photo of Bette Davis is, I think, the most perfect ever taken of her. Why? Because it is the most boldly complete, capturing what was most beautiful about her but also what was most dangerous: the unreleased dreams boiling
Norman Rockwell’s clearly privileged and very New York “Connoisseur” is staring at what I would call A Portrait of the Progressive New World Order. Few citizens anywhere would have a living room large enough to hang this very bloody-looking billboard
The death of Russian dissident Alexander Litvinenko instantly comes to mind when seeing Mel Gibson’s ‘Edge of Darkness.’ Why? Premeditated, homicidal radioactive poisoning. Such an assassination by a personalized nuclear weapon has only one notable precedent, and that is the
The little boy sitting with a cop in a diner could have been myself sitting with my police surgeon father on a morning of “custody fights” between my “mom” and my “dad.” I wasn’t a runaway yet. I would be.
That’s my grandfather in the middle … well … my grandfather sure looked like the home base umpire in this American classic by Norman Rockwell. George Moriarty umpired five world series. After one particularly contentious game, Big George, as I
I took a week off from my Enter Stage Right memoir, The Haunted Heaven, and this series for Big Hollywood. Why? For time to ponder how some people are losing their jobs because of their free speech. More than one
This series was inspired by the a six part, video examination of Dimitri Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony. Before you go to sleep, however, or bump up another article, stay with me and this article’s title. The cited video is Michael Tilson
My recent observations on Christopher Hitchens received impressively varied responses. Most, however, or most of those I’ve read so far, acknowledge the vitally important test of a human being’s honesty: the presence or absence of hypocrisy. I attribute the vitality
The Bloomberg terms for this year’s 9/11 Memorial are not only wrong, they are spiritually, metaphysically and, even in Karl Marx’s terms, dialectically “unbalanced”. Bloomberg is courting an even worse disaster than 9/11. To bear false witness against God, of
Odd how many Americans can agree with Christopher Hitchens on many issues, i.e. his rage at Henry Kissinger. I sympathize totally with such disgust. The Hitchens contempt for the Tea Party, however, is the grandest dividing line, largely due to
Thanks to Big Hollywood’s Alfonzo Rachel, I witnessed an entertainment miracle going off in Phoenix, Arizona. This is my third time through the Katt Williams, flame-throwing, soul-burning comic meltdown! This is so far beyond having an audience in the palm
With the President’s address to a joint session of Congress on September 8, I expect a mildly new turn on an old Progressive tune: “America’s not going anywhere without Karl Marx & Friends!” America’s increasingly far Left academia has always
Will Sarah Palin become our next Ronald Reagan and more? Or will she remain a female Rush Limbaugh? I don’t think Sarah Palin has any alternative but to run in the 2012 Republican primary. Her clearly stated analysis of “Crony
Arnie Grape and I What’s Eating Gilbert Grape is one of my favorite films. Of all time! The cast is beyond perfect. Led by Johnny Depp, Juliette Lewis and Leonardo Di Caprio, the love story that is Gilbert Grape puts
I went to University of Detroit’s Jesuit High School in Northwest Detroit. Out of all my educational experiences, those formative four years were the best and the most enduring. Matched up against four years of the Ivy League at Dartmouth
The comment section of any blog or internet site is always a re-education. Not about diversity of opinion but about the human condition itself. No matter how close two people’s opinions might seem to be, eventually there will be a
This music lesson given by Wintley Phipps is at the heart of what he stands for in the eyes of the young lost, those children of prisoners that he nurtures and fills with the amazing grace of hope. Our President
Obama’s to be “pissed-off” and Mayor Bloomberg deliberately “pisses-off” Ronald Reagan’s silent majority by excluding first reponders and clergy from the 9/11 Memorial Ceremony?! It’s beyond bizarre, it’s miraculously self-destructive on Bloomberg’s part! Not even NEW YORK will endure such
Morgan Freeman wants the President to be as “pissed off” as he is. That’s an interesting comment coming from one of America’s best actors. Morgan is a craftsman’s craftsman. I believe he represents the best of classic American acting since
The Toothless Rottweiler Big Hollywood has a fairly young audience so I don’t think the pluses and minuses of old age would much interest them. However, my self-appointed assignment here as Sarah Palin’s guard dog has brought me more than
No, he doesn’t improvise in rhyming couplets but one feels he could if it might provoke a laugh at the foolish world’s expense. One doesn’t want to be at the end of his verbal rapier. He’s already skewered the Obama
