On July 4, don't forget to salute the ladies of liberty

It's July 4. That means it's time to celebrate America's independence and to remember men such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin together with so many other heroes of the Revolution. We owe so much to these brave patriots, but we should not forget that liberty was not won by men alone. There is an old saying that behind every strong man stands a good woman, and this was true of the cause of liberty, too.

'Ted 2'is an entertaining yet fresh second helping of the first movie

Yes, it's idiotic. It's imbecilic. It's totally stupid.

But, I liked it.

Unlike the stoner/potty humor of the James Franco/Seth Rogan crowd, and the ignorant redneck/everyman humor of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, this movie was somewhat entertaining. It depended upon a plot and solid (although wasted) acting skills.
