  • 13 Dec 2012: Headline: "Incentives Do Nothing for Economic Development." Texas is 5th in nation in incentives per capita. Cronyism? http://www.theatlanticcities.com/jobs-and-economy/2012/12/regardless-how-they-are-counted-incentives-do-nothing-economic-development/4140/

  • 27 Dec 2012: The Hobbit (2012): Too long, too many liberties taken with novel, failed mix of whimsy and portent. Still, a worthy prequel to LOTR. B-
  • 28 Dec 2012: Take This Waltz (2011): Stale marriage. Chance mtg with attractive stranger. Growing attraction. Complications. Fresh take on old story. B+
