Review: "The Crazies'

"The Crazies" is a perfectly competent genre film in a genre that has exhausted its interest for me, the zombie film.

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."
