    I don’t know if any theatres were open during Hurricane Harvey’s most unwelcome sojourn in Texas, but my enthusiasm for an expedition was thoroughly dampened.

  • This Week’s Review: “Endeavour” Series

    Once again, I found myself faced with a very poor set of options at the movies. There was absolutely nothing I cared to pay to watch; therefore, I used Saturday, August 19, to get a haircut.
