His career was jumpstarted with the "Evil Dead" franchise, a series of low-budget supernatural horror films that would go on to become cult classics with legions of devoted fans around the world. But although he started in Hollywood with scary movies, Raimi has si...

Farm Price Supports and FDR

ON OCTOBER 29, 1929, the stock market crashed; the beginning of the Great Depression. How did we get out of it? We elected a Democrat. When FDR ran for president, he seemed an unlikely savior: a rich dilettante with a funny accent, a withered body, and cigarettes he smoked from a holder. But Roosevelt had a message and a cause: the "forgotten man" — the broken farmer in the West, the apple vendor hawking his wares for a nickel in in Manhattan, the Chicago and St. ...

Thanksgiving Day on the National Mall

Suddenly there’s lots more to see and do in the tourist center of D.C., an easy subway ride away for me. And boy, was it ever great to be back on a subway train after all these months. It was off-peak and sparsely populated.  My visit yesterday, on a sunny Thanksgiving morning, was a total pleasure. Here are some highlights for gardeners, especially.

This Actor Played Five Separate Roles In The Wizard Of Oz

Because of the popularity of 1939's "The Wizard of Oz," a movie that was notoriously dangerous to film, modern audiences have a great deal of information about its production. Many books have been written about "The Wizard of Oz." I recommend "The Making of The Wizard of Oz: Movie Magic and Studio Power" (1977) by Aljean Harmetz for a good historical view of film production in 1939. But even for those of us who have seen the film dozens if not hundreds of times, there may be details, lyrics, nua...
