Aroused

Porn stars are people, too.


Documentary

Rod Lott
As director Deborah Anderson states at the beginning of her documentary, Aroused is not a story about pornography, but about women. For half of its 69-minute running time (deliberate?), I believed her.

Booking it to Moore

Residents of a Texas retirement community contribute to a local book drive for Moore schoolchildren.


News

Molly Evans
Residents of a senior living community in East Texas were deeply touched by news reports of the May 20 tornado that devastated Moore. The seniors — some of them retired teachers, some grandparents and great-grandparents — were especially concerned about the young students of Plaza Towers and Briarwood, the two elementary schools demolished by that EF5 twister.
