By Nicholas Proch The human race is doomed. We can see the end of the Mayan calendar approaching and most of us passed through ‘judgment day’ without fretting. If this prophecy turns out to be true, I’m afraid to hear what my judgment was. In fact, most of us should be fearful of that, but […]
By Nicholas Proch There is a scene in A Charlie Brown Christmas that I consider to be a contender for the most-influential moment of my childhood.
