Uh Oh … the Last Links Blog Post?

I’ve put this off as long as I could, but just so everyone knows, this is my last week at the Pocono Record. I’ve been asked to write a farewell column as my final Sunday PopRox column in the paper, so that’s where I’ll save all the mushy stuff for. I’ll post it here tomorrow, [...]

Kathryn Bigelow Agrees with Me. Or Me with Her. Or Something.

Wednesday links, because I haven’t done that in a while, sorry: I feel a good bit vindicated. After I left Zero Dark Thirty with my wife on Sunday, she was doing most of the talking because she LOVED it. After a while I said, “I think it was a pretty harsh commentary on women in [...]
