42 - AT THE MOVIES WITH KASEY BUTCHER

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

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.

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...

SCHINDLER SEZ: THE RETIREMENT & ARBOR DAY

Why is Greenland mostly ice
and Iceland mostly green?

The Retirement
The fifteenth of April,
Is National Tax Day,
What you worked so hard for,
They taketh away.
They're not even hungry,
Yet they spend it on pork,
Give it to people who hate us,
And those who won't work.
The politicians are busy,
They seldom rest,
They're working their tails off,
Feathering their nest.

The taxes collected,
The influence they hold,
Are quickly turned,
Into silver and gold,
And if they're still living,
When out they must bow,...

WALK ON

Details

In ancient Jerusalem there was a pool of water called Bethesda. The location served as an impromptu hospital ward, a collection point for the sick, blind, and paralyzed. These infirmed went to Bethesda to receive a hoped for healing – not from a physician – but from the therapeutic waters themselves.

Back then it was a common belief that an angel came from heaven at certain times and "stirred up the water" of Bethesda's pool, resulting in miraculous healing for anyone who could get in the...
