Bill Moyers on Creeping Creationism in our taxpayer-supported public schools

Primary_dinoiii-thumb-400x249-59334

Moyers devotes a full program to the way "intelligent design" is being used as a a Horse to smuggle religious fundamentalism into pubic schools. Included here, viewable separately, are his sessions with intellectual Susan Jacoby and with Zack Kopplin, who when he was a Louisiana high school student enlisted the support of Nobel Prize winners in his campaign to draw attention to the practice.

Here's a link to Kopplin's segment, and a full transcript on the issue.

How I am a Roman Catholic

Primary_4_roger_20altar_20boy-2-thumb-470x425-59311

On Thursday morning, February 28, I found CNN featuring a continuous shot of a helicopter. The network cut between a close-up and a distant dot. It was Benedict, flying from the Vatican City. This was extraordinary attention for an ordinary cardinal, because as Benedict told the throng awaiting him, "I am no longer Pope." I am not a scholar of Catholic history, but I believe we were witnessing the first time the Papal throne was vacant while an elected Pope was alive.

Jonathan Rosenbaum at 70: A tribute

Primary_jon-thumb-350x233-53189

Three friends make a tribute to my own good friend and inspiration, Jonathan Rosenbaum. They write:

To celebrate a legendary critic's 70th birthday, two critic-filmmakers visit his home to create this intimate video present. Directed by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky. Produced by Kevin B. Lee for Fandor Keyframe. Special thanks to Ben Sachs (unintentionally not in the end credits).

Rosenbaum's Wikipedia entry, with his provocative "Alternative Top 100.

My wife Chaz, the television personality

Primary_cha4shot_3594-thumb-500x278-59223

Note: This entry contains several high-quality embedded videos. It's necessary to give them time to load before attempting to view *any* of them.

Searching for mention of "Amour" on our 2012 PBS program "Ebert Presents at the Movies," I was pointed by Google to one of Chaz's video reports. I remembered liking her video at the time, started noodling through all of her reports, and found myself thinking of my wife's emerging role as a movie critic. For more than 20 years, she's attended virtually every film festival and press screening with me, debated the films, made friends with the people.
