It's remarkable and deeply disturbing that he criticized protestors exercising their right to free speech -- not any who acted in violence or destroyed property, of course. Only hours later and likely by one of his surrogates, did the tenor of the tweets by the Twit in Charge change. Meanwhile, he has remained silent (one can infer indifferent) to the acts of terrorism and hate being carried out by the KKK and their ilk in his name. He should, of course, instead repudiate them. But such an act of leadership would be impossible for this pretender to the throne.

When Rosanne Bane, author of Around the Writer's Block, and one of my writing heroes, invited me to be a guest blogger, I jumped at the chance.

All true except for the part about turning urine into beer. It works quite the other way around.

It's been awhile since I've posted anything publicly here. Tend to forget I even have a Google+ account until a friend messages me or posts something that winds up in my email inbox. It's a new year, though, and maybe time to develop new habits, so here's a photo of my new min pin, adopted Jan. 1, 2015. Ain't she purdy? Name's Bella.

Good observations. I, too, am of the mind that both Tom and Red are masters of deception and that the story arc will eventually reveal that Red is Lizzie's father and that Tom, no matter the circumstances behind his deception, may have acquired authentic affection for her because of the time elapsed in close proximity. Whatever the outcome, it is sure to bring with it new surprises and twists.

Hiroshi stared one down and got the Vector to back away. I think it was a couple episodes ago. I still suspect an alien element to the storyline. Either the team of original scientists at the compound discovered an alien lifeform, a la John Carpenter's The Thing, and started messing with the genetic code, or one or more of them got inadvertently infected by it. It wouldn't surprise me to learn that Hiroshi and the blonde he killed (can't remember the character's name, but it's the same actress who played a borg in one of the Star Trek series) are both alien themselves wearing human "suits."

There is much to like in The Debt, an espionage thriller with Helen Mirren headlining an excellent cast. The international feel is spot-on, although some may find, like me, the jumping forward and back through time a bit disconcerting. I find no fault either with the star turns by Mirren, Tom Wilkinson and the ordinarily wooden Sam Worthington, who plays his part convincingly in this film. I could have done with more of Mirren on screen, but maybe that's because I am an especial fan. Certainly, Jessica Chastain, who plays her younger self in the movie does an excellent job. The heavy handed moral message detracts in the end, although not enough to spoil an otherwise fine film.

Fans of the books will appreciate the reboot of Conan the Barbarian. There is much to commend it if action-adventure with a high violence factor is your thang, although the villain and Conan's father could have played better. I found neither of them satisfyingly resonant in their archetypal roles, but Rose McGowan as the creepy witch more than makes up for her father's anemic villain. Jason Momoa in the title role offers a smarter, rangier barbarian. The opening scene is a shocker, and the young Conan fun to watch in action. Still, I was hoping for at least a few nods to the Conan Arnie made famous, if only for the sheer campy fun the 1982 version brought to the screen.
