It's back-to-school time. This sad fact brings school supplies, new clothes, and Hollywood's last chance to hit moviegoers up with summer sequels and blockbusters. This season, summer movies' last stand included S.W.A.T., Freddy vs. Jason, and Uptown Girls.

S.W.A.T., starring Samuel L. Jackson (Basic) and Colin Farrell (Phone Booth), is the action packed story of an LAPD SWAT team made up of the freshest, best, and blacklisted members of the force. The group, including a man who sold out his...

WHY WE LABOR

Reflections On American Labor Day

I always get a kick out of reading bumper stickers and posters. They tell an awful lot about the people whose cars or trucks bear them. Some of them have Calvin and Hobbes-like little boys who are putting down another brand of truck. Some of them say, "If you get any closer, introduce yourself." One of the symbols on cars or trucks is the Greek letter alpha, in the shape of a fish, which is an ancient symbol for Jesus Christ. The word in...
