The Patriot



Amazon has been producing some TV shows -- I hope Whit Stillman's show is still in the works. Although The Patriot thankfully doesn't seem to suffer from unrealistic diversity in casting, as an "offbeat" comedy disguised as a thriller (if that is what it really is) it doesn't seem to serve much purpose. Is this the sort of entertainment Uhmericans really need?

“This is our time of witness”: Abp Chaput on how American Catholics remain “strangers in a strange land” By Carl E. Olson

“It’s a time not for sadness but gratitude—and courage,” says the archbishop of Philadelphia in a discussion of his latest book on “Living the Catholic Faith in a Post-Christian World.”



Perhaps they are strangers in a strange land because they never fully assimilated and integrated with the natives...

A Lot of Star Power



But I can't relate to the characters at the moment... perhaps it would be good commentary about contemporary artists/musicians and their private lives.
