'Death Wish': What this World Doesn't Need Now
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
03:19PM / Thursday, March 08, 2018
"Death Wish," essentially a reboot of its 1974 namesake starring Charles Bronson, is problematic at best. For gosh sakes, there's tons of fear, loathing and guns -- the deadly sum of which the world doesn't need, especially at this incendiary and anguishing juncture in our history.    But you can't blame MGM or director Eli Roth for the untimely release of this heir apparent to what became the standard of vigilante ethos. Considering the ceaseless conveyor belt of mass shootings bloodying our landscape, there is never a good time.   You watch and wince. The casual mention of an AR-15 when Bruce Willis' Dr. Paul Kersey makes inquiries at a gun shop

Talk to Your Spouse About Your Retirement Vision
Submitted by Edward Jones,
06:22PM / Wednesday, March 07, 2018

If you're single, your retirement goals are your own – you don't really have to consult with anybody, and you can change your plans whenever you like. However, if you're married, you and your spouse should develop a joint “vision” encompassing all the key areas of your retirement lifestyle. 

These are a few questions you may want to address first:

Where should we live? Once you retire, you may need to consider two key aspects of your living situation: the size and location of your home. Regarding size, you may look around one day and realize you have more living space than you actually need. This is especially true, of course, if you have children who
