What's your favorite setting to see a movie?

In a good ol' fashion theater. There's just something about watching the big screen with a bunch of strangers.
The drive-in, if there's still one around. It's more cozy.
I like to rent and watch them at home. You never know what you'll dig up at the video store.
Who pays for movies anymore? Free download, couch, cheap popcorn.

'Unwanted' seems to be label enough to justify killing

Santa Maria

By Carole A. Roadarmel

While the quality of being “wanted” or “unwanted” may be fitting criteria on which to justify terminating the life of a bothersome or unwanted insect, certainly it should not be so for a human being. Yet, on the recent 68th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, human beings are still being killed for the fatal fault of being “unwanted.” That label was sufficient reason to kill people at Auschwitz, and it still is today at Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics where people are killed at the very beginning of their lives just because they’re “unwanted.”

Perhaps at the end of our own lives, when the problems of aging make us “unwanted,” we’ll be made to join them.
