“House of Cards” vs Reality

Written by on 30 May 2017

Remember the hit television show The West Wing? It ran from 1999 to 2006 and was highly rated, winning three Golden Globe Awards and 26 Emmys. Even with its overt left-wing bias, Sorkin’s storylines gave us an idealized yet engaging glimpse into what life in the Executive branch could be like. But I stopped watching roughly […]

You Really Can’t Go Home Again

Written by on 25 May 2017

One thing that the Manhattan Institute’s Kay Hymowitz and I have in common is that we both went to Cheltenham High School in southeastern Pennsylvania, though I attended some years after she did.

Concerned citizens: “Movies and video games are so violent today.” Bluegrass musicians: “Hold my moonshine…” Political arguments come and go, but when the ideological fights du jour have faded into something new, always in season is the question, “Is there too much glorified violence in the movies and in television?” Short answer: Yes. Long answer: […]

One Trump, Well Roasted

Written by on 2 May 2017

About a month ago I went on a Groucho Marx YouTube binge, watching the videos then moving on to the recommended links. I ended up on the Friar’s Club roasts of the early Seventies. Although I was a kid at the time, my family would hurt ourselves laughing as titans of comedy mercilessly ripped each other. […]
