Do you want to feel closer to God? Go see Le Divorce. It may be far from a spiritual experience, but it'll have you praying for it to be over within an hour. Le Divorce features Kate Hudson, Naomi Watts, and Glenn Close and is a complex "comedy" of errors. In the movie, Isabel (Hudson, Alex & Emma) arrives to visit her pregnant sister, Roxy (Watts, The Ring), in Paris just as Roxy's husband is leaving her.

LOOK AT THAT FINE CROP!

 

Reflections on Beginning a New School Year

 

Wow! School is off and running again! This year our daughter returned as a sophomore to Wayne, and our son is returning as a sophomore to Indiana U. in Bloomington. They're both growing up so fast. (And, I seem to be getting a wee bit older, too).

To The Editor,
