Are hockey fans...puckers?

The Ass
On Palm Sunday, Jesus rode into Jerusalem on an ass, followed by a procession of his followers, while others laid palms and their cloaks in his path.

In Pat's church on that day, a re-enactment of Jesus' triumphant entry was held. As the procession passed Pat's pew, Sim, her husband, whispered into her ear, "Where's the ass?"

Whispering back into his ear, Pat said, "Sitting next to me."

To all you wonderful mothers out there... Schindler Sez..."Happy...

IRON MAN 3 - AT THE MOVIES WITH KASEY BUTCHER

Details Kasey Butcher - Movie Review

To begin my review of Iron Man 3, I should probably confess that Iron Man is my favorite superhero. The nerd in me appreciates Tony Stark's genius and "smarter-than-thou" attitude. The girl in me appreciates Robert Downey Jr. This latest installment in the Iron Man franchise features its hero on the brink of a new crisis, a nervous breakdown.

Iron Man 3 picks up a short while after the events of last May's The Avengers, when Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) nearly died to save the world. In the...

Details kasey butcher

I have a soft-spot for baseball movies. The crack of the bat, the sound of the ball hitting leather, green grass and legendary summer afternoons—there's something nostalgic and really beautiful about a good baseball movie. 42, the new film about Jackie Robinson, combines a love of baseball with a sharp historical narrative to produce a great sports movie.

42 tells the story of Jackie Robinson's movement from the Negro leagues to his rookie season on the Brooklyn Dodgers. The film opens on...

BLOWIN’ IN THE WIND

Details

Now that Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio has been installed as Pope Francis, I must say that I could not be happier with the papal conclave's choice. Not that the College of Cardinals would bother to ask my opinion on the matter – I'm not even Catholic – but as a student of religion, one who stumbles along trying to follow Jesus, and a lover of startling, historic moments, I am ecstatic.

All the obvious reasons for my joy come to mind. Pope Francis is the first pope from the Southern...

HUMAN, AFTER ALL

Details

It was five years ago that Grandma passed away. When we attended her graveside service, Grandpa stood alone next to the casket. His tears flowed freely then. The grove next to the First Lutheran Church where she was buried on a midsummer's day was filled to the edges with her friends and relatives. None of us understood when Grandpa walked away from the church that day. He just started walking. For an old man, with a cane, we were concerned when he headed home by himself. A nine-block long walk...
