It definitely does need a face lift there, Mr. Rosenberg. I was so happy to see the mural on my way into town a few weeks ago!

Well, duh, what did she expect? Maybe next time she could just lay the purse, or even better the wallet, right on the floor so the thief could see it clearly.
I remember telling my mother forty-five years ago not to leave her purse in her cart at the grocery store, and now people are still doing it and at Walmart?posted @ Thursday, August 7, 2014 - 06:56

Summary: I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.
