Just a quick post to let y’all know I’ll be appearing on CATHOLIC ANSWERS LIVE tonight at 3pm Pacific (6pm Eastern) discussing current movies, including WALL*E, which I recently caught a screening for. Does it contribute to the trend of noted in my previous post about 2008 being a better-than-average year for family films? In […]
Below is an hour-long video interview with Justice Antonin Scalia which was aired on the Charlie Rose Show. Charlie Rose comes across at numerous points not as a serious journalist as a hard leftie who thinks he’s a serious journalist and who insists on viewing every issue through an ideological lens–although in fairness to him […]
