I come to you two days after watching the annual Oscar telecast wondering how much longer this sort of thing will be around -- this movie industry. When will it be beaten to its knees just like the music industry has been, just like we’re seeing it happen to the book and publishing industry?

It will start with the death of the movie theater.

On the surface, the affordable, 50-inch...

Every Child Has A Gift

The economic forecast for the Midwest, and Nebraska in particular, is sunny with a chance of profits. For many metro area teachers, this means more choices for a second job. For others it may provide an impetus to exit education altogether.
