    Hail To The Kin - Cousins

    What is this? Some sort of fluke? How is it possible that Cousins could be the sweetest, tangiest romantic-comedy treat since Moonstruck? The film's odds for success certainly don't seem very high going in. It's a Yank remake of a popu...

    Abortion foes who are counting on the U.S. Supreme Court to make the practice illegal in Arizona may be rudely surprised. Last month, the nation's high court agreed to review a Missouri law that restricts the right to abortion. Advocat...

    Dance, Kim, Dance - Forget the pain, forget the unpaid bills, just dance

    To see Kim Sonderegger on-stage-- her elegant face covered in layers of make-up, her slender body wrapped in net and tulle--you'd never think she was just a "grunt." You might guess she used to prance around her parents' living room, dre...

    Insect Asides

    Most people who've had the misfortune of making my acquaintance are of the opinion that I am just another cynic hardened by living far too long as a city dweller. They couldn't be more wrong. Just this past week I bought my fourth farm--speci...

    MacDonald: This Shakedown Artist Didn't See the Real Profits

    Four Easy Pieces

    I'm not a Lute Olson fan. To me, any Sunday his University of Arizona team loses a basketball game on national TV is a fine one. I've nothing against the Wildcat players. Actually, they appear quite likable. They play very well, too. It...
