Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
CBS Films The film follows the life of struggling musician Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac), left, who in this scene is recording with Jim Berkley (Justin Timberlake). Because director John Lee Hancock's "Saving Mr. Banks" springs from Disney, and is about the legendary impresario's attempts to secure the rights to P.L. Travers's "Mary Poppins," I expected a frothy evening at the Bijou. But the barely suppressed tears that welled in my eyes as the biographical significance of her classical children's fable unfolded informed I was mistaken, and that's a good

So what is the deal with the Easy Bake Oven?   Santa brought one to my 8-year-old this Christmas. She has wanted one for three years, but the box says "8 and up," so I told her she had to wait until she was 8 to ask for one. She asked this year, Santa obliged, and now we have a big black hunk of junk on our kitchen counter.   Our first attempt to make the cookies that came with the box was trial and error, but eventually we got some very small treats that tasted OK. However, the second attempt to make pretzel sticks failed miserably. An hour after we first turned the thing on, the pretzels came out still completely raw. The oven appeared to be on, as it felt warm to the

It was a word rarely spoken in postwar Japan. Bushido, or the "Way of the Warrior," evoked too many embarrassing and shameful memories culminating in the horror of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. But times have changed.

On Dec. 26, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe did the unthinkable. Defying the Koreas, China and the U.S., he visited the Yasukuni war shrine. It is where the memories of 2.4 million Japanese dead from three wars are remembered. His 30-minute visit sparked outrage from Japan's neighbors who view the shrine as a symbol of Japan's imperial military past.

Last Tuesday, the Japanese government confirmed my thesis presented to readers six months ago. On Tuesday, it announced

Eighth-graders at Mount Greylock Regional Middle School have been debating constitutional issues for more than a dozen years. This year's topics included free speech, equal rights and the death penalty.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — It is not every day you hear Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Robert Bork quoted on the same side of a political issue.

But Mount Greylock Regional School eighth-grader Santana King managed to pair up the political odd couple on a recent Thursday morning in the school's auditorium.

King was one of the students participating in series of constitutional debates that have been conducted for about a dozen years at the school.

Students took on topics ranging from

To some of you, my homily today may seem familiar. While you haven't heard it before, you may have read it as my column in the December issue of our diocesan magazine, The Catholic Mirror. I felt that it has a message that bears repeating, and so, with your indulgence, let me offer in this way.

The first time I was ever on a farm, I was struck — overpowered even — by all the smells. There was the fresh sweet smell of new-mown hay; there was the pungent odor of the pigpen; there was the mixture of animal smells in the barn; some smells were pleasant, some decidedly not. I am reminded of that farm visit every Christmas as I think of the stable where

BOSTON – The state's unemployment rate trended slightly downward for November, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
