Source Code

Can’t save the world in eight minutes? Try, try again, posits ‘Source Code,’ a mind-bender that keeps you guessing.


Doug Bentin
In order to enjoy “Source Code” to its fullest, stay alert — not always a necessity with thrillers. This time, if you snooze, you lose.

Train kept a-rollin'

Letters to the Editor

John Smelser
From the early 1920s until the mid- 1950s, my grandmother made her home at the intersection of N.W. 11th Street and Shartel Avenue. In the mid-1950s, she bought a new home in the 400 block of N.W. 43rd. As a child, I sometimes spent the night at her homes — as a very young boy on Shartel and later on N.W. 43rd Street.

Terror on a Train

Choo-choo-choose something else.


Rod Lott
Not to be confused with the ’80s slasher Terror Train — but, oh, how I wish it were! — 1952's Terror on a Train finds Glenn Ford (Superman: The Movie's Pa Kent) as Peter Lyncort, a bomb diffuser whose home life with his spouse (French actress Anne Vernon) is currently as explosive as his work life.
