Fly Over: ‘Jayden’s Revenge: A Story of an American Family’, and ‘Insidious 2’

Posted September 13, 2013 by Macario Mora and Jayson Burns

In print: ‘Jayden’s Revenge: A Story of an American Family’ Despite their length, I would argue that short stories are more difficult to write than full-fledged novels. Not that novels are easy (believe me …), but short stories are constrained by their general need to be self-contained, focused and, well, short. Dirk Knight’s first short…

Why do you serve?

Posted September 6, 2013 by Maj. RAYMOND CHESTER

One of the surest ways is trying to shortcut the canyon’s trails. Grand Canyon is often unforgiving of those who attempt…

Fly Over: ‘Orange Is the New Black’, and ‘Getaway’

Posted September 6, 2013 by Macario Mora and Grace Lee

On Netflix: ‘Orange Is the New Black’ One day as I was perusing Netflix for a show to watch, I saw one that stood out. It read “Orange Is the New Black: a Netflix original series.” I thought to myself, “I didn’t know Netflix made its own shows. Would it even be good?” At that…
