Review: I Feel Pretty bland

posted: 04/20/2018 1:53 a.m. Discuss

Amy Schumer is in a particularly interesting position this far into her career: The comedian, whose eponymous show on Comedy Central saw her star rise meteorically, reached a crescendo with her self-penned feature, Trainwreck, a comedy about a young woman whose life was a series of poor decisions, good parties, and a steady diet of walks of shame before finding true love. With a background in solid, challenging stand-up, TV and film success, she could seemingly go in whatever direction she wanted to. I just hope this depressing trifle isn't emblematic of her future endeavors.

COMMENTARY: Film doesn't make the left's argument

posted: 04/20/2018 1:48 a.m. Discuss

If you're a conservative and you pay attention to what is said about conservatives in the media -- two crimes of which I am guilty -- you come to recognize an evergreen tic: the desire to raise previously loathed conservative politicians to newfound heights after they have died in order to tear down whichever contemporary conservative pol has earned the ire of the press.

DEAR HELOISE: If you want telephone scammers to leave you alone, here is a good trick that works. If you have a messaging service on your phone, leave a message that says: "Hello. I am monitoring all my messages. Please leave your name and number and the purpose of your call." Scammers hang up, because the last thing they want is a recording of their voice.
