  • Do we weely need Wii?

     Call me strange, but I don’t drive a Humvee armed with a 50-caliber gun turret shooting up the neighborhood.

    I don’t engage in mortal combat with 800-pound lizard-people, vaporizing them with crystal swords or energy grenades.

    I don’t fight evil hordes of Planet Zorton, protecting the planet from certain doom. And yet somehow, I manage to cope with the day-to-day existence known to normal people as “life.”

  • No more door-to-door

    This is the time of the year when cherub faced salesmen come to the door peddling everything from nuts to wrapping paper in order to raise funds for a variety of projects.

  • Espionage suspect explains strategy

    During a three hour interview Wednesday afternoon, former Los Alamos National Laboratory physicist P. Leonardo Mascheroni spoke in detail as to why he thinks the FBI seized property from his Camino Mora home Monday.

     “The FBI came to my home about 9:30 a.m. Monday and asked to come in because they wanted to talk to me about something. I let them in and they presented a search warrant,” Mascheroni said. “It’s very clear it is treason - the case the government wants to make against me - I was never a spy.”

  • A timeless story gets on the screen

    It’s amazing that the book, “Where the Wild Things Are” only needed a few sentences to become beloved by young readers for generations. It’s not just the words that resonate with people – you see the story’s illustrations everywhere – coffee cups, T-shirts, posters and stuffed animals. To make a movie after a book that every kid has read and memorized and that features illustrations that everyone recognizes seems tough. There is sure to be someone who will huff, “This is not as good as the book.”
