A rhetorical analysis for ending violence


Letters to the Editor

Nathaniel Batchelder
Some argue that Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot by a deranged individual and that violent political speech had nothing to do with the murders. Perhaps, but shortly after the health care reform vote, which she supported, somebody jumped a gate and smashed the front door of her office.

Gun violence is society's cancer


Letters to the Editor

Mack Paul
Grant “Jake” Goss (Letters, “Councilman misfires with gun comment,” Feb. 16, Gazette) makes an excellent point in his defense of gun ownership when he compares the efforts at gun control with efforts to criminalize drugs.

Two guys, one beer

Guess they weren't the type to share


CFN

Gazette staff
We here at Chicken-Fried News generally abide by the assumption that most people can handle someone else eating the last piece of cake or an unclaimed schnitzel that had been sitting in the fridge without resorting to a physical altercation.

Django, Kill! (If You Live Shoot!)

Viewer, watch!


Western

Rod Lott
Is there a title more intriguing yet baffling than the punctuation-heavy Django, Kill! (If You Live Shoot!)? Don't answer that. The important thing is just that the 1967 Italian cult favorite now has been unleashed uncensored on Blu-ray from Blue Underground.

Creating violence


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
In the wake of the recent Dark Knight Rises shooting spree, we should probably begin to consider the variables that lead to such tragic events.

The Day

‘Day’ for naught.


Thriller

Rod Lott
So many Republicans took the news of President Obama’s re-election to such an illogical extreme, they took to Facebook and Twitter to warn the apocalypse was nigh, and you’d better grab all the guns you can. It’s almost as if they want societal collapse to happen. If they view The Day, however, they may rethink their stance, because the movie makes post-apocalyptic life look deathly boring.

Django Unchained

The 'D' is silent; the movie is not.


Western

Rod Lott
As he did with 2009’s Inglourious Basterds, superstar filmmaker Quentin Tarantino looked to Italy for primary inspiration for his follow-up. In Django Unchained, he’s cribbed the country’s spaghetti Western genre, shoehorned the all-American slavesploitation film into its center, and rewritten another ugly chapter in world history while filtering it all through his Movies Unlimited catalog lens.
