    A group of celebrities created a video to urge Electoral College members to cast their votes for someone other than President-elect Donald Trump on Monday. “You have the position, the authority, and the opportunity to go down in the books as an American hero who changed the course of history,” several celebrities say in turn. Unite for America, a group formed to try to prevent Trump from becoming president, created the video published Wednesday, which features actors Martin Sheen, Debra Messing and Bob Odenkrik, among others. . . . . .Despite media coverage, chatter and protests from a handful of...

    With FX’s fairly successful “The People vs. O.J. Simpson” miniseries about to wrap up its 10-episode run and ESPN set to debut an already-hailed five-part documentary about Simpson and the murder trial that drove a nation bonkers, we’ve reached the saturation point of televised O.J. Simpson reminiscences. Or so I thought.

    “We’re all on Daniel’s terms,” Tom (Martin Sheen) says referring to his adventure- seeking son in the new film, “The Way.” Daniel (Emilio Estevez), a born explorer, spends much of his time travelling the world as the story begins. Unfortunately, that leads to a tragic accident and Daniel is killed early on while taking a pilgrimage down the Camino de Santiago (“The Way of Saint James”). Directed and written by Estevez, “The Way” finds Tom travelling overseas to pick up his son’s remains. Daniel had encouraged his father to travel with him but Tom was always too busy.

    Cardinal Roger Mahony was smiling widely Saturday as he navigated the crush of immigrant rights supporters rallying in downtown Los Angeles, enlivened by the throngs of adoring supporters who kissed his hand and asked to be blessed. "Thank you, Arizona," he said, to no one in particular. "Thank you, Arizona." For the cardinal, the thank-you was two-pronged. Mahony compared Arizona to Nazi Germany after the state passed a strict new law that allows police to check the legal status of anyone suspected of being an illegal immigrant. But Mahony said the Arizona legislation might turn out to be a net...

    When Bill Shakespeare observed that life is but a shadow strutting and fretting its hour upon the stage, he must have been imagining Crawford, Texas, circa August 2005. Indeed, recent events surrounding the war protest led by Cindy Sheehan have added a new dimension to the definition of tragicomedy. Not just tragic, not just comedic, but also ridiculous. The theater of the absurd has found pay dirt in East Texas. Of course, there's nothing amusing about war, or loss of life, or a mother's pain. But those noble human concerns become something else once the red eye of the television...

    Hollywood-Hero – Commentary on Harrison Ford Well, there they go again. Harrison Ford is the latest Hollywood star to attack the Bush Administration and the Iraq war on foreign soil. In Madrid to promote his latest release “Hollywood Homicide”, he uttered the following: ''I'm very disturbed about the direction American foreign policy is going,'' said Ford, with U.S. post-war casualties having exceeded those during the actual conflict. ''I think something needs to be done to help alleviate the conditions which have created a disenfranchised and angry faction in the Middle East.'' ''I don't think military intervention is the correct...

    HOWARD DEAN'S LETTER FROM: Martin Sheen Dear Friend, Please do something after reading this email. Do what you can, but please do something. A few days ago Howard Dean did something we haven't seen in our country in decades. He called on all of the American people to participate again in our common future. Governor Dean spoke out loud and clear against the crisis of community our current President has created at home, and against the Bush administration's abandonment of the heritage of America as the Idealistic Moral force in the world. And then he said this: "The history of...

"As a fellow Catholic peace activist I am compelled to support them and their struggle for peace and social justice and their efforts to gain a fair trial," he said after meeting...

    They came out to protest the war against Iraq. They did their utmost to demoralize, humiliate and slander everyone and everything from President Bush to the soldier in uniform for even thinking about bringing an end to Saddam Hussein and his monstrous regime. Communists, socialists, terrorists, polititians and anti-Americans from every slimey corner of the country rushed to Hollywood actors to rally their cause acrooss the country. Here are just a few of them at anti-American rallies. What do they have to say about protecting their hero Saddam and his band of hideous terrorist thugs now?

    Actor/Director Tim Robbins hates free speech. So does his long-term partner, Susan Sarandon, as well as Janeane Garafolo, Martin Sheen, The Dixie Chicks, Mike Farrell, Sean Penn, Michael Moore, Harry Belafonte, Ed Asner, Danny Glover, Chrissie Hynde, and other ''anti-war'' celebrities. They only love free speech when they are using it to bash the military, President Bush, and America, both in our own media and overseas. However, when the American consumer, offended by their blame-America first rhetoric, reacts with petitions and boycotts, the words ''blacklist,'' ''undermining free speech'' and ''suppressing dissent'' are used by these celebrities. Hollywood is scared, because...
