SCHINDLER SEZ: THE BOOT

Details

The Boot
Connolly is me Irish friend,
He's as Irish as can be.
"What happened to your O," I asked,
The O' in O'Connolly?

'Tis a long and painful story mate,
So order us a jar or two,
And we'll sit here by the fireside,
And I'll tell the tale to you."

O'Leary was a bloody bully,
Barmen trembled at his sight.
He was strong as a bull and dumb as an ox,
And he loved to drink and fight.

When I walked into O'Dwyer's pub,
Where I'm known as gentle man,
But when O'Leary remarked
about me mum,
The manure hit the...

AT THE MOVIES WITH KASEY BUTCHER: "OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL"

Details

Oz the Great and Powerful, the new prequel to the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz, had me imagining what that film would have looked like if it had been made with the rich colors and special effects of today's film industry. Oz the Great and Powerful, however, ends up being all style and little substance, delivering little wonder and failing to live up to the wonderful storytelling of its source material.

In Oz the Great and Powerful, Oz (James Franco), a small-time magician in a traveling...

SCHINDLER SEZ: ON OR OFF, THE MAD HUNTER & GO IRISH

Details

for over 7000 years.

On or Off
Pro and college football players have been accused of using a banned substance called, deer antler spray, to in enhance their performance. Now I'm just trying to figure out what performance they're trying to enhance; on field, or off? Or are they just plain horny?

The Mad Hatter
I wrote a note to my friend, Matt Kelty, telling him I was mad about the "Kelty for Mayor" hat, he gave me. I also told him my friends wished they...

HOW FAR IS HEAVEN?

Details

Jesus never described the gospel as an escape hatch, whereby we can exchange his current world for a spiritual retreat far away. Never. Rather, his gospel was: "God's kingdom is here! It is now! Heaven has come to earth!" So when Jesus invited his first disciples to "Follow me," he was inviting them to get in on the world-redeeming, evil-conquering, status-reversing, life-transforming movement of God that had invaded planet Earth.

Jesus was inviting his followers to live out (not just pray)...

AT THE MOVIES WITH KASEY BUTCHER: "A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD"

Details

I have to admit that there was something brilliant about releasing A Good Day to Die Hard on Valentine's Day. Up against the latest Nicholas Sparks movie, Die Hard offered an ironic alternative as well as a new installment in an iconic franchise. Unfortunately, the best part of A Good Day to Die Hard was the scheduling.

In the movie, John McClane (Bruce Willis) travels to Russia where his estranged son, Jack (Jai Courtney), is in prison. Jack has been working with the CIA to break political...

SCHINDLER SEZ: DEAR GOD & ROAD APPLES

Details

If the violence and fights were outlawed from hockey...there wouldn't be near as many hockey puckers around.

Dear God,
Why do you allow so much violence in our schools?
~A concerned student
Dear Student,
I'm no longer allowed in the schools.
~God

Road Apples
Recently I read an article in the paper, written by a man complaining about the road apples (aka horse droppings) on the back roads of Monroe, Indiana. He wanted some sort of a regulation, which would require the Amish to outfit their horses...
