‘Mike Wallace is Here’ Review: A Complicated Portrait of a Public Figure

One of the emerging trends in the films at this year’s True/False documentary film festival in Columbia, Missouri has been curated footage. Several of the films at this year’s festival, like Apollo 11, Amazing Grace and now director Avi Belkin’s film Mike Wallace is Here , are made up entirely of archival content, either presented in a linear way, or edited together in such a way that it creates a complete picture all on its own. In the case of Mike Wallace is Here , Belkin has assem...

Parisian of the Month: Patricia Laplante-Collins

This is a posthumous Parisian of the Month of Patricia Laplante-Collins from 2009. Sadly, Patricia suddenly passed away last month. In case you don’t know who Patricia Laplante-Collins was, she was an ex-pat social lynchpin of Paris, hosting her famous and popular Paris Soirees. Almost every Sunday night for over two decades, Patricia would open her home and make dinner for whoever wanted to come, as long as you were pleasant and open to meeting new people. (She charged a very nominal fee for...

"What's Your Name?"

by Justin Peters hen most of us think of John MacArthur we think of the precision of his preaching and the care with which he has handled God's word. We think of the courage he has displayed in interviews with Larry King and more recently Ben Shapiro as he has boldly declared unvarnished biblical truth and yet done so with love and compassion. All of these things are true.There is another aspect of John, though, that has had just as much impact upon me as has his preaching. His humility.Though I...

All We Did Was Survive: The State of the Pro-Life Movement Under President Trump

ABSTRACT: The pro-life movement in America seemed in dire straits in 2016, with losses on almost every front. Donald Trump’s surprising win appears to have stalled the abortion juggernaut. An escape, however, is not a triumph. Dunkirk was not Normandy. Abortion is here to stay as long as millions of young Christians are uninformed, unequipped, and unconcerned. We asked Scott Klusendorf, president of Life Training Institute, to give a state of the movement on the pro-life cause under t...

TV Flashback – Larry King asks Jerry Seinfeld an idiotic question

Jerry’s reaction is hilarious . . . There are certain videos I periodically rewatch because they are so good. Jerry Seinfeld going off on Larry King for asking if "Seinfeld" got cancelled is one of them. — Jimmy Traina (@JimmyTraina) December 13, 2018

How Stan Lee Went From the Voice of Marvel to Cameo King

(Welcome to Role Call, where we examine two performances from an actor – their first defining role and their most recent/last – to get a sense of who they are.) My Stan Lee story is the same as everyone else’s. I was milling around the Marriott Marquis at one of a hundred sponsored parties at Comic-Con when the Marvel legend walked up to me, struck up a conversation, and chit chatted for a few minutes before moseying along to a comfy lobby couch nearby. I don’t remember if he had a drink. I don...

Trump is crude on Saudi Arabia, but he’s simply continuing US policy | Gary Younge

US presidents have been appeasing brutal dictatorships for years. Trump merely does it with appalling and brazen clarityIn 1989 five teenagers – four black and one Hispanic – were arrested for the brutal rape and assault of Trisha Meili, a white woman attacked while jogging in Central Park in New York. Less than two weeks later, Donald Trump took out full-page advertisements in all four of the city’s newspapers calling for a return of the death penalty. In an interview later that year, he told C...

When I was around 13 years old, I was doing so poorly in school that I was told I could not return the next year to the private high school I was attending. To add insult to injury, the school told me I would be lucky to finish high school at a public high school and should consider going to a special needs school. They called my parents into a meeting where they presented them with all sorts of brochures for boarding schools for special needs kids who would never amount to much. I still remembe...

We’re still clueless about lifetime value

If an Apple upgrade breaks your phone and you switch to Android, it costs Apple more than $10,000. If you switch supermarkets because a clerk was snide with you, it removes $50,000 from the store’s ongoing revenue. If a kid has a lousy first grade teacher or is bullied throughout middle school, it might decrease his productivity for the rest of us by a million dollars. Torrents are made of drips. The short-term impact (plus or minus) of our work or our errors is dwarfed by the long-term effects....

You Do Not Need to Escape to Get the Life You Want

I love sports cars. For as long as I can remember, I have been unable to drive by an exotic car dealership without stopping, going inside, and looking at the cars. My wife hates this about me, and she generally stays in the car. In most big cities there are dealerships that sell Ferraris, Porsche’s, Lamborghinis, and so forth. Whether I have been living in Detroit, New York City, or Los Angeles, I have generally found these dealerships and have gone inside to look at the cars. When I was 27, I b...
