When you look at a country spending billions of dollars in a war in Iraq, you can't help but wonder what we are thinking.  Billions of dollars to protect us from terrorists or is it insurgents?  I'm not sure; I just know lives and our hard earned money is headed FAR AWAY FROM THIS COUNTRY because mankind has not developed beyond the early days of the Bible.
We can come up with billions to kill and destroy but little to rebuild the city of New Orleans a place where American people worked and slaved to give it meaning.  Why is that?  Why is it not important to take care of this area of our country?  In America alone, we have single individuals that could afford to rebuild that whole foundation and they would not miss the money as far as lifestyle.  Yet, our rich preachers, athletes and celebrities except the exceptional ones would rather sit on money they will never spend in this life time than to be a blessing for innocent victims of a natural disaster.
Our media does not expose good on a high scale, they would rather we continue thinking the world is filled with heartless, selfish and greedy people seeking to be worshiped by others.  But this does not apply to everyone.  My heart was blessed when I read and listened to Brad Pitt share his genuine concerns in rebuilding New Orleans.  He is one soul that went there with the people's best interest at heart without looking for a pat on the back.  He didn't just come there for news coverage and tax write-offs.  This family man and well known celebrity came to assist in healing New Orleans.  For once, it was not about color but supporting humanity to become stronger and nurtured.  I just want to thank God for his spirit and his family being so willing to join him on his determined mission to do good will.

The rise and rise of Ellen Page

Ellen Page is without question the woman of the moment in Hollywood right now. With a Best Actress Oscar nomination recently stacked up alongside a list of achievements for her turn in ‘Juno’, including being named the Breakthrough Actress of the Year at the Hollywood Film Festival, she is, to coin a lovingly overused tinseltown term, ‘hot’ right now. Piping hot.

Between a Rock and a Heart Place

Screw Geoffrey Chaucer. Not for his poetry, quite honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever read any of it, but because apparently he inadvertently created Valentine’s Day. I didn’t know this until recently. I just assumed the holiday was the byproduct of greeting card company greed and lack of anything better to do in the month of February, but evidently it’s been around for quite some time.

Halle Berry burns at the box office

Buried deep within the embers of grief, a spark of friendship ignites in relationship drama 'Things We Lost in the Fire'. However, while this thoughtful, emotional film delivers some strong performances and appealing cinematography, don't expect a blaze of drama and excitement.

Girls Aloud or Girls Alone?

Despite having fame, wealth, beauty and a hugely successful pop career, the members of Girls Aloud seem to be lacking in one department - a happy and healthy love life.

Great American Dumb Ideas: Elder Blues

Fads in mental health diagnoses come and go. Something called Existential Neurosis was popular for a while, but seems to have lost some of its gloss in recent years. For a long time now, any high-energy, active child risked being diagnosed—often misdiagnosed—with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD).
