    You know when you are really engaged in a project that is important to you – be it fly fishing or a theatre project—and you are totally in the weeds, totally focused on the finer points and problems of your project?

    ArticleMarvel Madam Aagahi!

    Like many graphic novel aficionados of my generation, my inner child and I hopped, skipped and jumped our way down to our favorite childhood comic book store to get our hands on the new Ms. Marvel when it debuted on February 5th, 2014.

    ArticleWhat Has It Been For?

    There is a question snaking out from the underbrush: “What has it been for?”  It slithers on the heels of the return of insurgents in Fallujah, the film Lone Survivor, and release of former Defense Secretary Robert Gates’ memoir.  Personally, and I say this respectfully, I find this to be a naïve... more...
