Big Screen Boredom

Reports are circulating that 20th Century Fox and Walden Media have purchased the rights to produce a live action version of Bil Keane’s “Family Circus” one-panel comic. Who’s ready to see that wacky PJ crawl across the floor, eh, eh?
Result: Fail 🙁 Unless, it turns out that Billy is a homicidal maniac, there’s little possibility to find any entertainment in a “Family Circus” flick. There’s family friendly entertainment and then there’s just mind numbingly dull. Who’s willing to bet this one falls in the latter.

A Real TEA Party

Gov. Mike Beebe is asking legislators to knock another half percent off the state’s grocery tax. This will knock $15 million off the state’s anticipated general revenue fund. It’ll also save struggling families and folks some much needed pennies.
Result: Win! Beebe keeps whacking away this ludicrous tax on food. Eventually, we hope he knocks it down where it belongs — zero. Find some other revenue stream please!
