Favorite Childhood Movies

Movies have always been, and continue to be, among our most entertaining pastimes. The suspension of disbelief is a welcome distraction in the busy world we live in, especially during this past year of the pandemic.

Jury Finds in Favor of “Law & Order” 

In the somewhat crowded genre of television legal dramas, the original run of “Law & Order” continues to stand out years after it ended due to its memorable cast and great writing. The show ran for two decades and ended 10 years ago, but when found in syndication or on Peacock still manages to feel fresh.
