Wray Herbert: Who Am I? The Heroes of Our Minds
Huffington Post - about 4 years
One of my guilty pleasures is the TV show Ice Road Truckers, which tells the stories of the heavy haulers who deliver vital supplies to remote Arctic territories of Alaska and Canada. In just two months each year, these truckers make more than 10,000 runs over hundreds of miles of frozen lakes, known as ice roads. We get to share in the treacherous drives -- and just as important, the personal travails -- of the veteran Hugh "The Polar Bear" Rowland, the brash tattooed Rick Yemm, the cold-hating rookie T.J. Wilcox, and former school bus driver and motocross champ Lisa Kelly, one of the rare women to break into this man's world. I'm not alone in this fascination. Millions of viewers have tuned into every episode of Ice Road Truckers since its premiere in 2007. And if hazardous driving is not your cup of Joe, how about Ax Men or Dance Moms, Chef School or Bikini Barbershop, Sister Wives or Biggest Loser? Reality TV dominates small-screen viewing these days. Viewers have litera ...

A New Generation Runs for Congress: Jesse Kelly (R), AZ Special Election
Big Government - almost 5 years
Meet Generation V, the young Veterans of the long war.  They return now, fully vested in the system and confident of their ability to make it better. Unlike their unfortunate young counterparts in the Occupy movement, these heroic All-American men and women, who represent the best among us, choose to make their voice heard in civil ways and in tribute to what we have accomplished as a nation.  Like Kennedy, Ford, H.W. Bush and many others of the Greatest Generation, and like the brothers in arms who followed after Korea and Vietnam, they know full well what service means and the responsibility it carries. In 1975, nearly 70% of Capitol seats were held by veterans of World War II and Korea. Today, the Congress has the fewest Veterans in its history.  Just 20% of those on Capitol Hill today have served in the military (25 in the Senate and 90 in the house), and even fewer are combat veterans. But a new generation of agents of change are on their way, determined to fix what a ...

Project X: Teen Party Movie On Steroids
Moviefone Blog - almost 5 years
What is it about other people's parties that's so endlessly fascinating? We clearly like to watch others party, get crazy, loud and wild. Just look at the inexplicable popularity of shows like Jersey Shore as evidence. Because really, what else do they do besides party? Sure, they fight sometimes, which is often amusing, but more often than not these unlikely TV stars are fist-pumpin', binge drinking and urinating in public spaces. All three of these party-related activities (yes, pumpin', drinkin' and urinatin') can be seen in this week's release Project X, which lets us watch a bunch of teenagers have the craziest night of their lives from the comfort of a plush movie theatre seat. Unlike Jersey Shore, Project X is scripted, and produced by Hangover guru Todd Phillips. (Keep your eyes peeled for the iconic blonde blowup doll that pops up in all his flicks.) Some elements of Project X are reminiscent of classic teen movies like Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Pretty in Pink, Weird S ...
