Video Game Review: 'Dante's Inferno'

If ever there was a work of great literature tailor-made for adaptation into a video game, it would be Dante Alighieri's "Inferno" from "The Divine Comedy," a three-part poem. It has hell's signature foreboding and a litany of monstrous entities that any game developer needs for a good head start.

Review: "The Crazies'

"The Crazies" is a perfectly competent genre film in a genre that has exhausted its interest for me, the zombie film. It provides such a convenient storytelling device: Large numbers of mindless zombies lurch toward the camera and the hero, wreaking savage destruction, and can be quickly blown away, although not without risk and occasional loss of life. When sufficient zombies have been run through, it's time for a new dawn.

Just a proud American

As a third-generation Hispanic man, I applaud Bob Kellar for his stand on illegal immigrants and stating that if being an American and standing up for his fellow Americans makes him a racist then he is a "proud racist."

Bill Kennedy: What’s the cost of honor?

"Sir, are you listening to the radio?"

Catching me at home at 6:45 a.m. as I was preparing to leave for my job as base commander of Hickam Air Force Base, Hawaii, I knew instantly this was not an idle inquiry from my executive officer.

Condescending, not persuading

Diana Shaw's column ("Two-thirds or not two-thirds," The Signal, Jan. 19) takes on a more condescending than persuasive tone with statements like "the People of Arkansas are eminently more rational than Californians" and "Guess what? We live in a democracy."
