Took in at Riverview Theater last night True Grit – 10 Academy nominations. Must try to muster “true grit” for blogging as administrator daughter Anastasia insists.

Western reality, as I recall in a seminar setting with my students, is rather complex determining what is stereotype and what is fact.
