  • What is the cost of doing what is right?

    “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act,” Dietrich Bonhoeffer said.

    I’m reading a biography on Bonhoeffer called “Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy” by Eric Metaxas. As the words cross the page, a remarkable man walks out of history. He’s a man who could not be silent in the face of evil.

  • Previews for Disney and Pixar’s “Brave” make the film look like a fun and exciting adventure for the entire family. Sadly, the reality is quite different.

    In “Brave,” Princess Merida wishes to rebel against tradition and find her own way in the world. But she doesn’t do this, as the previews suggest, by having a brave adventure through the Scottish highlands.

    Because Merida and her mother, Queen Elinor, cannot agree on what to do, Merida seeks the aid of a witch to change her mother. No adventure, just trickery.

    Louie Dercqu’s decision to begin playing the drums can really be traced back to two sources of inspiration — his mother and Travis Barker.

    Dercqu, 18, a recent graduate of North Hardin High School, was planning to take up the trumpet in the school band when he was in fifth grade. But since he was constantly tapping out a beat on the furniture in the house, his mother suggested he play the drums instead.

    Updating a classic can be tricky.

    Take, for example, the “enhanced” Star Wars trilogy. Never has a man gone from revered to reviled as quickly as George Lucas after the release of his remastered trilogy. It was bad enough when he made those last three prequels with Jar Jar Binks. But then he had to go and mess with the original films, adding in some special effects and tinkering with the storyline just enough to completely destroy the central morality tale of the film. I mean, really George, Greedo shooting first?
