I know, I know, my title may sound a bit redundant but the truth is the first time I saw How to Train Your Dragon 2 I...hated it. Not loudly or emphatically but with a quiet burning dislike.
So just how quickly after the Disney - Lucasfilm acquisition was officially announced was tonight's Phineas & Ferb: Star Wars special put into production?
I'm not going to apologize for laughing my ass off at Seth MacFarlane's A Million Ways to Die in the West.
We were never the trendiest band, but we've always been here. Even the critics that hated us back in the day, you get them drunk and they know the lyrics to all these songs.
Remember that the cross is more than a necklace, a pretty ornate object that we bow to in church, or a means of propaganda. The cross is a reminder of the darkness of human ignorance but more importantly the glory of God's victory over death.

Here are two punch lines that remind us of Lincoln's death. One worked for most, the other only for a minority. It had nothing to do with sensitivity about Lincoln's passing, rather it was the approach.
