Me Before You Movie

Have you seen the movie or trailer for Me Before You? It looks like the cutest and most romantic movie about a beautiful girl and a man who faces a new life as a quadriplegic. Ladies, there is a castle! It couldn’t get much better than that! Right? Most people were in for a rude […]

41 Years to Go?

I wonder if 41 years from now, as I venture into old age, if today will mark the 82nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade — the supreme court decision legalizing abortion through all nine months of a woman’s pregnancy in the United States. I wonder if the many marches will continue in 2055. Will hope […]

Newt Gingrich — Life Begins at Implantation

Not really feeling GOP candidate Newt Gingrich’s position on claiming life begins at implantation: 1. Science clearly shows life begins at fertilization. 2. He is Catholic and this goes against Catholic Church teaching. This being said, he does appear to be very pro-life, despite changing positions during his career. People change, grow, and improve their character. […]
