Anarchy in the Magic Kingdom

Biopics about musicians seem to be all the rage lately. Last year ‘Rocketman’ about Elton John and ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ about Queen were released. ‘Respect’ about Aretha Franklin is due out this year, while Elvis, Whitney Houston, The Bee Gees, Boy George and Bob Dylan will be the subjects of several rumored upcoming biopics. Streaming services […]

The Eye of the Beholder

This comes as no shock to folks who have read previous articles, but when I was a kid, I collected lots of Star Wars toys and other merchandise, including trading cards and comics. Even less surprising, I never ‘outgrew’ those things – I still read the comics and look at the cards. And sometimes play […]

Hear Ye, Hear Ye

Kanye West is an interesting cat. He continuously makes headlines for his high-profile marriage, and now divorce, with Kim Kardashian, interrupting awards shows to voice his disagreement with the declared winners, running for President, and his stream of consciousness tweets. His unorthodox behavior sometimes detracts from his remarkable success. West is one of the world’s […]

Whose Team Are You On?

Like most Wisconsinites, I’m excited about the Brewers’ lead in the NL Central and hope they can make another long playoff run.

Remember, though they’ll always be our kids, we don’t […]

But after Germany sank several American merchant ships, killing their passengers and crew, Wilson asked Congress for “a war to end all wars” that would “make the world safe for […]

Show Me the Money!

I am a huge fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which, so far, is comprised of 23 films. The standalone movies all reference one another, yet they tie together to tell a grand over-arching story. In addition to the movies, the Disney+ streaming service currently has three TV shows that are woven into the MCU […]

Where’s the Beans?

While I love the smell of coffee, I hate the way it tastes. Just a little sip leaves a horrible, bitter taste in my mouth. Apparently, people who drink Folgers are feeling the same way. Folgers is at the center of several class action lawsuits filed by coffee drinkers that believe they were shortchanged. Most […]

When Patients Need a Lift

It’s a sad fact that sometimes basic transportation needs get in patients’ way of accessing health care, and no health care provider wants to see their patients go without care just because they can’t get rides to the clinic. While it may seem like paying for a patient’s Uber ride, cab fare, or bus ticket […]
