"I wouldn't do that...I'd go see it in the discount theatre for $4.oo or $5.00 for the 3-D version. There's a lot of sound work that a quality sound system and the large screen enhances.
I wouldn't have said that it is…"
"I tell you what, from what I hear, the new Superman film is something of a disappointment. Of course your mileage may vary, but I think I'm convince to wait for Netflix on this one in the meantime.
But what has made me happy over the past few…"
"It was two days ago. My soon-to-be-7-year-old granddaughter was visiting for a few hours, and I wasn't feeling very well. I had a couple of comic books sitting on the love seat next to me. Without either of us saying a word, she walked over,…"

I imagine all of us leave a bigger wake than what we realise. But it's nice to, every once in a while, have somebody tell us so. I'm glad you enjoy the column.
