Westworld Episode 3, The Stray

Westworld seems tailor made for the frat bros who revel in the nudity and misogynistic violence of so many other HBO shows. The original movie was definitely a fevered adolescent fantasy of getting to play an adult version of Cowboys and Indians complete with robot hookers. Then it went wrong in the same way kids in…

Maine the way it should be.

Lately Maine has been the laughingstock of the nation. Our governor just says whatever he wants into open mikes and his head is full of things that make an editor want to wake up in the morning. We also have Stephen King who has made everyone from away think that the state is full of…

Westworld More of the old Ultra-Violence

The interesting thing is that Governor Terry McAuliffe didn’t veto the…

Homeland Security: What is the Jack Bauer Syndrome?

Fifteen years ago on September 10th the FBI declared at a congressional briefing that the most imminent domestic terrorism threat was from animal-rights activists.
