Someone who makes sense

Instapundit referenced a post by The Anchoress on the Schaivo situation and I have to admit this is someone who makes a lot of sense on the issue. She also makes unkind reference to Paul Krugman which always scores points with me. Check here out here.

Horror Movies

This seems to be the year of the Horror Movie. For a genre that was deader than the proverbial doornail not long ago, it seems like there is a new one about every week. I have not seen all of them, though I probably will at some time, I did see The Ring Two this past weekend. While I did not find it particularly scary, it was a rather well made supernatural thriller. Peril grows through the film, and both the concerned caregiver and the love interest are killed but both are rather understated. The guy even died off camera, we know he's dead, but there was no real need to show the event, just the aftermath.

This is a film I would recommend. It is not gory or explicit in its violence so would work for viewers who don't appreciate blood spewing across a wall. It has a strong moral as well, TV is evil. Not one I particularly agree with but the argument could be made.

Since we are entering a period that will see the release of a number of films that I am excited to see, I will probably comment on films a fair amount in days to come.

Fox's John Gibson is a nitwit. Read this The arrogance of the man is astounding. He wants Gov. Bush to send in the cops to forcibly intervene. It is amazing how rights become less important when they belong to others.

Let them alone!

I am becoming increasingly annoyed at the ongoing interest in and coverage of the Terry Schaivo situation. It is by all accounts an incredibly tragic and personally devestating situation for that entire family. The fact that they seem to be at odds with one another over how to handle it makes it even more difficult. For the media to latch on like vultures is disgusting. For Tom DeLay and the Republicans in Congress and President Bush to exploit this tragedy for political gain is immoral. They should all truly be ashamed of themselves.

There are personal and private tragedies in this world. Exploiting them, for ratings or power is beyond reprehensible.

I have been a Republican for all of my life and stuff like this is driving me out of the party. They need to show some repect for the people, or all they will receive from the people is contempt.

I have been thinking about starting a blog for a while and have finally gotten around to it. I plan to use this as a forum to express my thoughts. Perhaps only to myself, but sometimes writing something, really helps me clarify my thinking on a subject. I imagine my topics will vary significantly over time. What impresses or annoys me will be the subject of my commentaries. More to come.
