What It's All About

Some of you know me through the years I spent teaching, while others by the articles I wrote for FILMS IN REVIEW magazine. Some might be friends from Camp Equinunk, while more might remember me from my days in London. And then there are some who....well, whoever you are and wherever we know each other from, welcome to my blog.

I think what I'd like to do on this is to talk mainly about films, theater, books and the lot. I have some pretty strong opinions and I am sure you do as well. Maybe we can compare notes. I am sure there will be some personal stuff here too, (I am about to attend a huge high school reunion after %^*^$% years, for instance, and I have a feeling there will be some comments about that!), but all in all I'll try to write this as though we were sitting across from one another in my living room. (By the way, I will try my best to stay away from the world of politics as everyone is talking about that and no one is doing anything about it. I will leave this field to wiser men than I and hopefully, one day, some sage, perhaps not yet born, will finally solve the problems of the world. I wish him or her well. (In re-reading the last I realized that I seemed a bit wimpy so let me just clarify my position re: left or right by saying that I abhor Ann Coulter and venerate Maureen Dowd. 'Nuff said.)

And that's probably enough altogether for now. If you read this and want to comment, please do.

Let me sign off by quoting the sign the sign that hung over my desk while I was teaching; "Love One Another." Until next time. Jeff

I personally find Maureen Dowd a bit over the top. Or to be more fair, her articles don't seem to catch my attention whereas I seem to have a fair bit of time for Frank Rich and Thomas Friedman. I think that is part of the problem of all this technology in the 21st century. It is too easy to turn the page and miss some good stuff. Also, I had to look up Ann Coulter, and don't like her either. Waiting for a good book review.
