In The Spotlight


A Woman Scorned…

This post is about abortion. Viewer discretion is advised… When is abortion NOT controversial, so I felt it was necessary to open with the equivalent of a movie black screen MPAA warning… you’ve been warned… The right to have an abortion was decided via Roe v Wade on January 22, 1973 by a 7-2 vote […]

NFL Season Opener 2011

First game of the season… The New Orleans Saints vs. the Green Bay Packers. The last two Superbowl champions. How awesome is that for a season opener. Especially after all the BS over the player lockout. But then the game...

Netflix Logo

Netflix You!

That even sounds dirty to me… Netflix has officially become a pronoun. You’ve been Netflixed! Before I get into the rational discussion of NETFLIX, I have to note the mass amounts of outrage spewing from former Netflix ...
