“‘Tikkun Olam,
the fixing of the world,’
she whispers.  ‘I’ve been
gathering up the broken vessels
to make things whole again.'”

‘Bee Season’ Anxiety
(Leonard Klady, Movie City News):

The mixed bag of limited release preems was highlighted by an excellent response to the concert film Sarah Silverman: Jesus is Magic. The film recorded a $19,000 plus per engagement average from seven outings for a $130,000 gross. The family drama Bee Season had a comparable gross but on three times as many screens that translated into anxiety about the Richard Gere film’s expansion prospects.

A search on the related adjective “hendiadic”
leads to an insightful discussion of
religion and law
in contemporary Latin America
by Antônio Flávio Pierucci.

For other material on
Latin America and religion
from Robert Stone and
Nythamar Fernandes de Oliveira,

Yesterday’s link for Nixon’s birthday
 led to an obituary of a Marxist
writer that concluded as follows:

“In 2004, Mr. Magdoff wrote about his friendship with Che Guevara, one of his revolutionary heroes. At what proved to be their final meeting before Mr. Guevara’s death in 1967, Mr. Magdoff asked what he could do to help Cuba. ‘Keep on educating me,’ was the response.”

For the education of Latin America
I recommend the writings of
Pierucci, Stone, and Oliveira,
but not those of Magdoff.
