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.

Bill Kennedy: What’s the cost of honor?

"Sir, are you listening to the radio?"

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."
