Song for a Snow Day

Between reading Francis Hunt and Singing Bear's blogs, I thought of one of mine and WP's favorite films, McCabe and Mrs. Miller. And what a fitting setting for what is going on weather-wise around these parts. No amount of  "summer feeling" can erase the reality of this storm. Yikes.

    In Iran and Egypt it's the governments who censor the Internet. In our glorious world of free-market capitalism, it's money and big business ...

  5. Becky - I am a huge Altman fan. I love how the film is described as an "anti-western". Perhaps why I like it. I've never been a huge fan of the genre.

    I'm so glad you're visiting and leaving comments! :-)
