“I Love You, Phillip Morris” is all over the place

The movie “I Love You, Phillip Morris” is a strange movie… probably made all the more strange by the fact that most of it is a true story. The fact that this film is a bit chaotic and hard to pin down at some points may be testament to the fact that real life...

My dog has an addiction, and I am her enabler

I suppose I can’t blame her. She is part pit bull, we and her vet believe. No matter how many times it’s happened in the past, I still can’t help myself — whenever I go by the clearance rack at a pet store, I pick out at least one fuzzy stuffed toy and give...
