A child is born, a family is healed, and a sermon on forgiveness is delivered with sledgehammer subtlety in "Black Nativity," a bold but clumsy attempt to bring Langston Hughes' popular musical to life onscreen.

Half a century ago, Sid Davis was the first journalist to learn John Kennedy had died. Instead of breaking the biggest the biggest news story in the world, he waited because he wanted to make sure he was right. It is hard to image a journalist making the same choice nowadays amid our modern cacophony of inaccurate reporting, but perhaps Davis has something to teach us.

Advocates for Comprehensive Immigration Reform (English translation: amnesty) like to point out that immigrants in the past have flocked to America and made important contributions to our nation. That’s true, but the America of 1913 was different from 2013 in ways that greatly affect the probability that immigrants will become contributing citizens.

I believe the City of Apache Junction made a major mistake when they agreed to the erroneous street plan for Apache Trail North. Now we have portable speed limit signs flashing fifteen (15) miles per hour, much like a school zone, at the north and south entrance to a road that could have been two lanes of traffic in each direction with a center turning lane, which (in my opinion) would have been much more practicable.
Frustrated by the ease at which digital photos can be taken and doctored, some artists are kicking it old school: They've revived wet plate collodion photography, a medium invented and popular during the mid-1800s.
This photo provided by Studio Q shows "Skull Valley Massacre, 1864," an image by Quinn Jacobson that he took this month at Teepee Mountain in a valley West of Prescott, Ariz., where a group of Yavapai families were massacred by soldiers. Wet plate collodion photography, invented in 1851, has experienced a resurge in recent years as photographers turn to this antiquated method for its moody, even haunting, images and complicated, hands-on process. "The aesthetic is kind of a half-remembered dream," says Jacobson, a Denver photographer.
