Inglourious Bunnies, 3.5/5

bunnies

Quentin Tarantino’s latest movie presents a conundrum for this reviewer. Its title features a word that I’m not completely thrilled with typing. It’s not that it’s a “bad” word per se, but it’s not something I enjoy saying and it’s certainly not a word I’d say in my grandmother’s presence, so I don’t see much reason to type it out and save it for all posterity. You might be asking yourself how I can rationalize being prudish when it comes to speaking/typing, but have no problem seeing this and other rated R movies, movies that have much much worse language than the occasional “B word.” Well, the answer is shut up, I just can.

We Need Reform, and We Need it Now

3b8c63aa10efe-82-1There’s been a lot of talk about reform lately, and up until yesterday, I honestly haven’t been too interested. My employer takes care of me, why should I get all worked up? It’s easy to say “I’m young and (relatively) healthy… I don’t have a dog in this fight.” It wasn’t until yesterday that I realized we’re each only a breath away from being thrust headfirst into the heart of the debate. I normally ascribe to the “less is more” theory of government, but now I’m wholeheartedly behind a public option. The system we currently have is broken, and Congress needs to act for the good of our great republic. Continue reading

I’m a Horrible, Horrible Person

Photo_081909_002Why am I a horrible person? Because when I saw this woman at the post office, I stopped to take a picture before tapping her on the shoulder to  tell her of her “issue.” May God have mercy on my soul.
