October 5th came and went without me remembering...six years ago he passed. He would have been sixty-two. Still young, with plenty of time to increase his dent in the universe. Unfortunately, the light that burns twice as bright burns half as long - and Steve Jobs burned so very, very brightly.Read More
In the realm of action films and spy thrillers, American Assassin takes a page out of the Jason Bourne and Jack Reacher playbooks by eschewing the tropes of a suave James Bond, the tech-heavy Mission Impossible, and stunt-laden xXx (Xander Cage) franchises.Avoiding the glitz, gadgetry and implausible CGI-fueled stunt set pieces of the previously mentioned franchises, American Assassin manages to deliver a truly satisfying time at the movies.Read More
You stabbed the devil in the back. To him this isn’t vengeance, this is justice. If you liked John Wick, you’re going to love John Wick Chapter 2. The movie picks up shortly after the first movie. John Wick, played by Keanu Reeves, is still angry, still out for vengeance and still, hell bent on getting back his classic Mustang. He’s physically healed from the first movie but, psychological wounds run deep. Wick is still a bad, bad, man. The Boogeyman as Assassin incarnate. And he might need some professional counseling for all that inner rage.

Originally written on the day after Father's Day 2009 — Republished 2010. I hope this missive is the prodding others need to realize that it's not too late to make amends. You can't choose your family but, you can choose to make the most of the time you have with them.
Forgiveness. Yesterday was the first time I didn’t feel guilty about forgetting to put a Father’s day card into the mail. For the first time in my life I didn’t need to make that call, to hear your voice, talk to you ever so briefly, before you would hand the phone to Mom — but, I wanted to.
That's why I'm compelled to write you this letter. I don't know how the universe works but, I have faith that you'll see it.
