Farewell to "24"

"24" is one of the most exciting action shows on TV and has been for the past eight years. Kiefer Sutherland stars as special agent Jack Bauer who saves the world within a 24 hour crisis. I started watching this series in 2001 and have been a fan since then.

The series began with him working for the Los Angeles based Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU), for whom he is characterized as a highly proficient agent, but one who is willing to do whatever it takes to 'do the right thing' regardless of the legality of some of his actions. Throughout the series, Bauer has to deal with multiple terrorist plots, including Presidential assassination attempts, nuclear, biological and chemical threats, and cyber attacks.

The show has won numerous awards and Kiefer has won Best Actor - Television Series Drama at the 2001 Golden Globe Awards. And I'll truly miss the show when this season ends!

Hidden in this Picture by Aaron Sorkin

Propelled by Sorkin’s signature sleek, fast-flung dialogue and acerbic humor, Hidden in this Picture pokes fun at the commercial scramble of movie-making while critically questioning artistic integrity, prompting a …

Pet Peeve of the Week

It would seem that a lot of folks were in a hurry this week to get to nowhere on the beltways, highways and in parking lots. I observed folks switching lanes without signaling, swerving because they were putting on makeup, talking or texting on the phone. Even when I was leaving a busy parking lot, this driver was so hell bent on parking so close to the entrance of the store that she blocked my view of on coming traffic which prevented me from making a left hand turn. She had no clue as she was playing with her hair until I motioned to her to move so I could see the traffic.

Another thing I observed, was folks running the red light only to end up at another red light. There really is no reason to risk the lives of others to get to nowhere.

So for all drivers who are cautious out there, remember that you save lives by driving not only for yourselves but for others as well. There really is no excuse to take your eyes off traffic. If you don't have speakerphone or blue tooth capabilit…
