'Hitchcock' a love story

Wednesday, January 2, 2013 by The Press in Focus

Suspense. Intrigue. Shock. Irony. Dark humor. Romance.

These themes are often the stuff of legendary director Alfred Hitchcock's films, most of which are now regarded as classics of cinema.

These themes are also the stuff of "Hitchcock," a semi-biographical film about Hitchcock (an uncanny Anthony Hopkins), his wife Alma Reville (a fine Helen Mirren) and the producing, filming and 1960 premiere of "Psycho."

Hitchcock's "Vertigo" (1958) is now regarded by movie critics and movie-goers as the greatest movie of all-time, eclipsing director Orson Welles' "Citizen Kane."

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Guns do not kill people – people kill people

Wednesday, January 2, 2013 by The Press in Opinion

To the Editor:

Murder originates straight from the heart not from a weapon. From the heart comes the inspiration to kill, maim, torture, etc. In the heart is anger, hate, jealousy, greed, coveting, and selfishness. Kind, honest and loving people don't let these things control them.

Murder can be carried out by someone using a rock, vehicle, baseball bat, water, plastic bag, poison, etc., etc. etc. There is always a weapon or method available when someone wants to hurt or kill. Guns are just one method. Murder was happening thousands of years before the invention of the gun.
