Where I, Ron, blog on a variety of different subjects--social theoretical, historical, cultural, political, social ethical, the media, and so on (I got the Max Weber and Mark Twain in me)--in a sometimes Niebuhrian or ironic way all with an attitude. Enjoy. Disagree. Be very afraid particularly if you have a socially and culturally constructed irrational fear of anything over 140 characters.

Film Notes: Return to Me
Bonnie Hunt's (director, co-writer, co-star) Return to Me is a tale of love, love's magic, the desperation of love, and love's destiny. It is also Chicago native Hunt's love letter to her home town, particularly to Chicago's Old Town, a neighborhood of the city I remember visiting as a teen. Return to Me is wonderfully old fashioned right down to its Dino and Sinatra sound track and that, in my opinion, is all for the good. This wonderful film brought back wonderful memories to me of me and my sister sitting in front of the TV on Saturday and Sunday afternoons watching the best of Hollywood classics. Check it out.
