It's Coming, Really...

The internet was down all weekend. I am so sorry, there was nothing I could do about. I am 3/4 of the way done with the post on The Hunger Games, which is anti-capitalist. It's taking Moneyball (Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill) and turning the "game" from a fruitful capitalist venture into showing a graphic account of what really happens in a capitalist society (if you wish to review some of the high points of Moneyball, please visit Moneyball & the Great American Economy). It's almost done, really!
Thank you for your patience, and I sincerely apologize!
 P.S.--Since next week is Holy Week, I will be posting on The Passion of the Christ, Cecil B. DeMill's The Ten Commandments and Melancholia (I know that last one may come as a bit of a shock, but I think it will fit in nicely), as well as a comparative analysis of various scenes depicting the Death of Jesus, especially for those of us who will be staying at church until midnight Thursday.
