In Defense of Wooster ~ Letter To The Editor By Al Segalla

San Andreas, CA…This is regarding the calls for ouster of Planning Commissioner Kelly Wooster. Poor choice of words, for sure. He should have said “Illegal immigrants” or “Mexican Cartels”,which I think he meant. He apologised. Nuf said. Any more attacks on him is really not only an attack on Mr. Wooster’s First Amendment Rights, but […]

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Review – Return of the Franchise ~By Brett Bunge

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation Review: Spy vs. Spy ~By Brett Bunge

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation Review: Spy vs. Spy ~By Brett Bunge

Hollywood, CA…The Mission: Impossible series has always been represented by a lit fuse—first in the 1960s TV show, followed by its revival in the 80s, and continuing with the Tom Cruise film series that began in 1996. It’s a particularly apt symbol for this fifth installment, subtitled Rogue Nation, as one never knows what to […]
