"Who invented clothes?" It's one of those brilliant questions that children ask, before they learn that the big things we wonder about rarely have simple answers. It's the kind of thing that archaeologists like me get put on the spot about when chatting to kids, and we love to have a crack at answering.Saturday's "Ask a grown up" section featured just that ...
Winds: From the South at 7 MPH
Written on the Wind [DVD]
Written on the Wind is by far the most sordid of director Douglas Sirk's 1950s social dramas. The debauched tale of an uberwealthy, but deeply troubled Texas oil family, it reaches near hysterical melodramatic proportions, dealing as it does with alcoholism, nymphomania, sterility, adultery, and murder. Audiences in 1956 ate it up as a lurid, but straightforward soap opera of familial ... ...
denied their motion to overturn the Salazar decision on constitutional grounds. A tactical, piecemeal circumvention of the ban has had better luck in the bureaucracy of the U.S. Forest Service. The USFS, despite the anti-mining intent of their boss President Obama, authorized a Canadian company to dig uranium six miles from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. ...

The history of crowd control reached a milestone as Boba Fett stood guard at the Sorcerer's Hat Stage. After my recent adventures in space history and space history-in-the-making, it's only fitting that I spend the third and final episode in this shameless series of work-related outings immersed in space fantasy. And seeing as how it's billed as a "trilogy," why don't I ...
They Said It
Nothing will ever completely replace playing the game I love, however I feel like I'm starting a new adventure and I'm genuinely excited about what lies ahead. I'm fortunate to have been given many opportunities throughout my career and now I feel it's my time to give back.
