If you’ve seen “Straw Dogs” you know about the complicated rape scene. Disturbing, I admit, but a discussion for another day.
I think it’s a brilliant movie. No doubt the remake will be uncontroversial and uninteresting. Instead of Sam Peckinpah, we get the director of “The Last Castle.” Instead of Dustin Hoffman as a mathematician, we get a unmemorable TV actor portraying a screenwriter. Instead of Cornwall, we get the South, which, one assumes, will receive the full Deliverance treatment.
Watch the live stream as Libyans topple a tyrant.
Just watched David Axelrod muddle through a series of tired platitudes and token solutions to the economic crisis. On one side we have unrealistic, often loony proposals and on the other, well, nothing. Nothing of consequence, anyway.
At the end of the day, the president needs to pivot. No more kicking the can down the road. Instead, Obama should have an adult conversation with the American people. We want a balanced approach. We need a game-changer.
Leave no political cliche behind.
WASHINGTON — Animals across the world are fleeing global warming by heading north much faster than they were less than a decade ago, a new study says.
About 2,000 species examined are moving away from the equator at an average rate of more than 15 feet per day, about a mile per year, according to new research published Thursday in the journal Science which analyzed previous studies. Species are also moving up mountains to escape the heat, but more slowly, averaging about 4 feet a year.
