I like this, Lance. One sentence reviews are the best, and with this as evidence, you're especially well suited to them. As you probably know, Manny and I depend upon you for movie and Netflick-TV series reviews. You've never missed the mark.
With books, too, you're on target, although I have noticed a few small preferences of yours that differ with mine, albeit not Manny's.
Thanks for my Mother's Day wish. After I saw that, I attempted (and I'm afraid failed) to send Mother's Day greetings to all the mothers among my Facebook friends. As usual, I balked in the clinch, since I can't seem to stop one app from triggering another. A flashing sign was about to tell me who hates me. I know enough of that; any more might toss me back to bed where I'd just cry for days.


Wouldn't it be more accurate to say that he saves his virginal daughter, fails to save her not-so-virginal friend, and then decides that all the other trafficked women in France can get their own dads to save them?

God, I hated that movie. There wasn't a woman in it who did anything but cry, scream, and suffer. Even Die Hard: The Evil Internets gave the girl a few good lines.
