Re: “Film Review: "Captain America: The Winter Soldier"

Also, I wish CITY would allow another reviewer to tackle comic book hero movies, just for a change. Especially, considering this writer has demonstrated his disdain for them, and their audience, time after time.

Based on his wrap up of both his assumptions of the intended audience for both comic books and this movie (the tired jab about 15 year old boys), he's clearly not up to date with either the movie genre or the source material and the diversity of people who enjoy both.

You ought to try enjoying something before you die. You might find it suits you.

Re: “Five local guitar makers discuss their craft

The person who took the photo is an artist as well—so it's not the worst thing in the world if you took note of his name as well as his craft.

Re: “The holy war next door

The problem is, Chi, that the pro-life sentiment seems to fade away after birth. Where is the moral outrage that children in this country die of perfectly preventable illnesses because their parents cannot afford healthcare? With many of these movements relating to the Catholic church—how pro-life is an organization that protects known child abusers? Would these same protestors stand outside a prison and protest the death penalty? In my experience, not many of them would.

These protestors aren't pro-life, they're anti-women.

What George Carlin did that Mother Teresa didn't was point out the hypocrisy of these myopic groups. When these groups spend as much time protesting poverty and the widening gap between the have and the have nots—maybe they'll have the merit to invoke Mother Teresa.

Re: “The holy war next door

I think Carlin said it best.

"Boy, these conservatives are really something, aren't they? They're all in favor of the unborn. They will do anything for the unborn. But once you're born, you're on your own. Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that, they don't want to know about you. They don't want to hear from you. No nothing. No neonatal care, no day care, no head start, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing. If you're preborn, you're fine; if you're preschool, you're f***ed. "

Re: “DINING REVIEW: Tap & Table

I went to Tap & Table a few weeks ago and was a little underwhelmed as well. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't this mind-blowing beer/food pairing experience. People had talked it up so much that maybe it just fell short of the hype.

Personally, I think this review is pretty fair and also hope that as the restaurant goes forward it grows into the accolades that have already been set upon it.
