Movie Review: Bombshell

Outside of pedigree and nepotism, all that is left is the lewdness associated with shameful means of success. I imagine Roger Ailes was one of the masked men in Kubrick’s last film Eyes Wide Shut — bringing women from the newsroom as a commodity to the sons and daughters of the confederacy behind Venetian masks.

Hugh Thompson, An American Hero Revised

I would venture to say that most Americans have never heard of Hugh Thompson, but on March 16th, 1968 he put his life and his reputation on the line in order to save some innocent civilians from the ravages of war. The whole event has been shoved into the dustbin of history. It’s like it never happened. Our government and ... Read More »
