I can pretty much sum up this post in one question: Why’s it gotta be about gender? First of all, let me get one thing straight: I wish to see equality between the genders.

Listening to Lee Greenwood’s “Proud to be an American” gives me the shivers. The song’s lyrics and the way it is sung makes me think on all that is good in America, the sacrifices of many patriots, service personnel, and citizens. The ‘City on a Hill’ as it has been depicted in the far past and b...

With anticipation building for the upcoming ‘The Force Awakens’ Star Wars movie, I’m reminded of what made the original trilogy so great.

I’ve also found myself hoping the next movie resembles the first three movies and not the prequel trilogy, which I don’t like to acknowledge as existing.

Just what was it about Mr Mauritius that made him seem so dapper? It was difficult to pin it down. His clothes were worn. Very worn. His shirt showed through the thinning elbows of his jacket, the ends of his trousers badly frayed – enough to make any gent look unkempt. And yet he did not.
