    Movie Review: "American Hustle"

    (NEW YORK) — David O. Russell is one our best storytellers.  Period. Take the message that begins his latest film, American Hustle: “Some of This Actually Happened.” Score!  We have a film about a con that doesn’t con the audience about this being “based on a true story” or “actual events.”  How refreshing. Loosely based on the FBI’s late 1970s ABSCAM government corruption sting, a nearly unrecognizable and consistently fantastic Christian Bale plays Irving Rosenfeld.  A lifelong con man, scamming comes easy to Irving — so easy, he was able to earn enough money to start a legitimate dry-cleaning businesses.  But he can’t… Read more

    Monsignor Robert Weiss: 'I'll Always Be the Newtown Priest'

    (NEWTOWN, Conn.) — One year after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Monsignor Robert Weiss of St. Rose of Lima, the only Catholic church in Newtown, Conn., carries a shade of grief that is uniquely his own. “I think we’re going through the authentic stages of grief,” Weiss said.  “I’m encouraging people not to judge anybody.  As I say, ‘One day you could be up and the next day you’re down.’” For Weiss, the past 365 days have been filled with peaks of hope and plenty of valleys as he grapples with his own post-traumatic stress from rushing to… Read more

    Fla. Teacher Accused of Feeding Autistic Boy Hot Sauce Rehired

    (ORLANDO, Fla.) — A Florida elementary school teacher who was fired for feeding an autistic child hot sauce-soaked crayons is being reinstated on the orders of a judge who rejected the school district’s appeal to keep her out of the classroom. Lillian Gomez was fired from her job at Sunrise Elementary School in Kissimmee, Fla., in February 2012 after school officials found out that Gomez had allegedly put jumbo-sized crayons in a cup and soaked them for days in hot sauce before moving them to a bag that was labeled with the student’s name.
