The Constitutionality of the Affordable Health Care Law Upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court!

This is a great day for all Americans. Earlier this week the Supreme Court struck down the illegal  parts of Arizona’s unconstitutional immigration law.  Today they ruled on the constitutionality of the Affordable Health Care Bill.   I believe that during the implementation of the Affordable Health Care Law over the next two years, those Americans […]

Jerome Kern ~ One of the Great Ones! And His Great Masterpiece!

SHOWBOAT Music by Jerome Kern Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II The musical “Showboat,” first performed in 1927, is based on Edna Ferber’s novel of the same title.  One of the great things about the American Musical Theater is that difficult or controversial  issues are not ignored or censored, but become the primary themes of the the work.  This marvelous […]

The album has just been re-mastered and re-released in May 2012. […]

What is All This About Lincoln and Vampires!?

This is a review I wrote last September of 2011.  The movie based on Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter is coming out this month on June 22, 2012.  I doubt whether I’ll see the movie in a theater because it is much to violent for me.  I’ll catch it on AMC sometime in the future.  I […]
