My Favorite War Movies

Although war in general is obviously a horrible experience for everyone involved in it, the subject has spawned some of the best and most memorable movies ever made. While many films have taken a direct, almost documentary approach and were quite gritty in tone, other movies have used war as a backdrop to another plot, and still others have used the usually serious subject of war in a way to depict a comical story; some have even combined all of these.

Some of the government’s own efforts at filmmaking worked against them; for example, two of John Huston’s Army films, The Battle of San Pietro, which was filmed during the battle and showed soldiers actually being shot and killed in action, and Let There Be Light, which show…

Do black lives REALLY matter?

  I believe in judging a person by the “content of their character, not by the color of their skin.” I could care less if you are black, white, lavender or a frigging green Martian. If you are a good person who is nice to me and others, you’re OK in my book.   I have be…

Learning that no one in America even had health care before the 1920's,and people did pretty well without it, was interesting.  Doctors took care of people because they cared for them.  Many doctors and veterinarians had barter systems, where those they took care of paid them in food, or s…
