Fly Over: ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’ and ‘Home Alone′

Posted December 19, 2014 by Nestor Cruz and Devante Williams

On DVD: ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’ I love Westerns, both dramatic and comedic, and I was eager to watch this movie with the tagline “From the guy who brought you ‘Ted.’” That alone should have been enough of a warning for me. “A Million Ways to Die in the West” is…

Chaplain’s Thoughts

Posted December 12, 2014 by Chaplain (Maj.) Larry Fowler
