    Are you a foodie? I am. Fine wine, great food, I think about them all the time. Cannot be trusted around either of them. It's pathetic. I have no control. My willpower is powerless, every time I get on a digital scale, the little window says, "One at a...
  • Reel Critics: Houston, there's a problem with this 'Apollo' movie

    "Apollo 18" has an interesting premise — say there was a secret mission to the moon, and you were now able to view undiscovered footage showing how things went horribly awry. Good concept, boring execution. This "Blair Witch Goes to the Moon"...

    Smith: Goodbye, my sweet Cay
    Cay and I married Feb. 22, 1987. On May 29, 2010, she stopped speaking to me. At first, I thought it was a combination of job stress, a few converging life events and the distinct possibility that she was mad at me. Several days later, at the urging of...
