A rollback to racial integration


Letters to the Editor

Tamya Cox
At the American Civil Liberties Union, we aren’t sure if Sen. Rob Johnson’s attempt to end affirmative action in Oklahoma is a joke, or if he is truly naïve enough to believe that Senate Joint Resolution 15 will end discrimination and increase diversity in Oklahoma.

Terry Theise has spent much of his life singing the praises of Riesling in a language we can all appreciate.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
Terry Theise makes wine nerds gush. Jane Black, writing for The Washington Post, introduced him thus: “If you like wine and don’t mind name-dropping, here’s the name to know: Terry Theise.”

Denomination divisions

An amendment that would allow the ordination of gay clergy has some Presbyterian ministers talking schism.


News

Greg Horton
The Presbyterian Church (USA) moved closer to ordaining LGBT candidates for ministry last month. The Twin Cities Presbytery in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area became the 87th presbytery to ratify Amendment 10-A, which changed previous language that only allowed for married or celibate candidates to be considered.

Bullhead

A drama with balls about a guy with none.


Drama

Rod Lott
One of this year's Academy Award nominees for Best Foreign Language Film, the Belgian drama Bullhead does nothing to change the public perception that the category's entrants wear perpetual frowns. After all, its protagonist so clearly, so early, states his life's motto: "You're always fucked."

Amour

Brace yourself for an unflinchingly honest love story.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke isn't the obvious choice for a movie about love at its weightiest and most profound. In previous works like Funny Games, The Piano Teacher and Caché, he has crafted cinematic nipple twists that tweak audiences while examining humankind at its cruelest.

‘The good crazy’

Renewed attention for Project Nim has ensured that animal rights — and the documentaries that chronicle them — are having a reawakening.


Features

Nicole Hill
Bob Ingersoll gets emails every day. He reads each one. The senders often turn into friends. Those friends lead him to other areas of interest related to his work. But Ingersoll does not want this story to be about him.
