Good news of the day, of a different sort

Same theme, different aggressor.  As conservation has kicked into high gear over the last 30 years, the comeback in wildlife has been amazing.  Black bear have been spotted near Louisville, and have even swum the Ohio river to once again enter Indiana.  I live in a very suburban area, and the talk of the neighborhood the last few weeks is the two coyotes that have been spotted in the neighborhood.  I am sure they’ve shown up because of the deer and raccoons that are ever present.

This.  This is why government sucks most of the time.  I am going to dig up ever old paid of glasses I can find and send them to this guy.

Latest chapter.  Glad the homeowner had a gun.  Interesting that the criminal was shot 6 times and had non-life threatening injuries.  I can only assume it was a .22.

Movie review: Passengers (2016)

I managed to finally get around to watching this the other day.  Normally, this is a movie that I’d have made a point of seeing when it came out.  It is a big budget sci-fi movie and that is usually what I like.  However, I didn’t catch this one until now.  It was OK.

Just OK.  Not bad, not great, just OK.  The CGI and set designs were excellent.  The special effects were very good.  The female lead is Jennifer Lawrence, who geographic loyalty says I have to like. (She is from Louisville). She is very popular right now, but while she does a good job in this film, it isn’t great.  Its just a workman-like good job.  Chris Pratt is the male lead and he does a very good job as a character put in an impossible position who makes a choice that he regrets and doesn’t regret at the same time.  He did a very good job of conveying the emotional conflict that is the heart of the film.  At this point I’d usually talk about the plot, but in the case of this movie, you are better off not knowing, as the plot is a lot of what makes the story watchable.

I’d give this one 3 out of 5 stars.

About to be the youngest QB in playoff history.  Glad to see a U of L alum doing so well.
