Skyline Review: Invasion of the Plot Snatchers

Wow. I haven’t been affected by so many special effects as far as I can remember. Which after the light show from the movie I just saw is not surprising due to the flash-induced memory-loss. Let’s see how many movies, novels, etc. can easily be linked to...

The Long-Forgotten Ideal

I love my country. I love knowing for what She has stood over the last 234 years. She has been a bastion of liberty and hope for mankind in the political sphere. Her beacon of freedom has shone throughout the world as a reminder of the promise of Man. With all of her...
