“The Shack” is the long-awaited film version of the 2007 novel of the same name, written by Canadian author William P. Young. If you have read the book, you will know to bring plenty of tissues to the film. This is a story of bad things happening to good people and of the Holy Trinity intervening to teach love and forgiveness. As a result, the IMDB website categorizes the film as “drama/fantasy.”

A Work Session is scheduled at 5:30 p.m. today at Pinon Elementary School. Agenda item 10 is a budget presentation and discussion.

So it’s fake news vs. alternative facts, is it?
 
Well, alternative facts are a contradiction in terms. Something is either a fact or not. Nothing is in between. There are no alternative facts.
 
We’re talking about Kellyanne Conway, counselor to the President of the United States, trying to help her boss wriggle around his still-unfounded tweet that Barack Obama tapped his phone in Trump Tower. The President’s charge of fake news as a blanket statement can’t possibly apply to every case and is at the very least carelessly imprecise.

Mr Visel, you are already the second person in town who does not seem to realize that you are supporting a threatening government that makes immigrants like me feel unsafe to show their face if they have a fact-based critical attitude about them (click this  link to read an exchange between Gerald Antos and Concerned Citizen a few weeks ago).

I find this surprising for a city like Los Alamos that most conservative people are silent about a lying and threatening government (e.g.
