Politics and Religion Go to See the Movies
Teenaged me was walking out of the movie theatre, happy. I'd just seen Disney's  Hercules  with one of my two families, and I'd had a darn good time. "Great movie," I said. My stepmother shot me a scowl. "You liked  that?" Uh-oh. As a kid, you know that loo...

Pain and Inhumanity at the Gas Station
"I really don't feel like talking to you right now." The young woman's voice came from somewhere behind me. I'd been flipping through late-night Twitter while a Speedway gas pump replenished my Mazda's hydrocarbon supply for the next day's field trip. My ea...
