The Help - Go To It

"The Help" is a good movie, better than most recently. In today's hopeless desert of films, "The Help" is an oasis. It is one of those movies where a full theater just sits while the ending credits run and music plays. Then they slowly and quietly trickle out of the theater. Could they be unwilling to let go of the poignancy or are they dreading exposure to the latest "Conan the Barbarian" next door. No, it's not Schindler's List.

We Really Should Read

Here is the latest Drudge Headline:

And yet when you read the linked article:

“None of those killed in the crash is believed to have been part of the SEALs mission that killed bin Laden, but they were from the same unit as the bin Laden team.”

What is really true is anyone’s guess but we should really read the material to which we link and from which we make our headlines, even Mr. Matt. But the killed Seals were from the same unit so by some stretch the headline is somewhat true. Lame stream media may be more guilty of headline deception than anyone else so I am leaning toward forgiving Drudge for his youthful indiscretion.
