Rick Santorum: Frothy Mixture of Sophistry and Stupidity | eNewsChannels | Neotrope News Network | Scoop.it
OPINION: With a deficit of intellect and a surfeit of bile, Rick Santorum is scrambling to find enough numbskulls to bankroll another failed run for the presidential nomination of the American Taliban Party. If it weren't for the entertainment value of his snide and sniggering superciliousness, Santorum's main qualification would be that he's a killjoy., by John Scott G

Matthew Vaughn’s ‘KINGSMEN’ is bloody brilliant in the kick arse department | Ga-Ga Magazine | Neotrope News Network | Scoop.it
MOVIE REVIEW: If you’re looking for a simple-minded romantic comedy this is not the film you’re looking for. If you want director Matthew Vaughn’s trademark mix of humor, action and high production value, sit down and be a happy camper. “Kingsmen: The Secret Service” is a definitely British movie, unlike his earlier “Kick Ass,” which was geared to the American audience without question., by Christopher Simmons for Ga-Ga Magazine - go gaga!

REVIEW (by John Scott G): Stacks of facts tumble over each other in the second edition of 'What You Should Know About Politics...But Don't" (ISBN-13: 9781611454758) by Jessamyn Conrad, and it would be an incredibly valuable book if it contained an index.
