Conservative Coalition Caught in Anti-Porn Ring!
Legislators vow to crack down on Internet child porn, even where it doesn't exist.
News Story  August 30, 2002, by Michael King
"...Like Justice Antonin Scalia, who snorted at the notion that Romeo and Juliet or Lolita ("A great work of art!" he sneered) might be declared illegal under the statute, the collected Texas conservatives vowed to "make sure," said Rep. Jones, "that any child pornography law protects our children from being exploited and that it is enforceable." But when pressed by reporters to describe what sort of legislation they had in mind, the House members were more than a little vague, referring only in general to San Antonio Congressman Lamar Smith's proposed "Child Obscenity and Pornography Prevention Act" as a possible model..."

Mike Tyson tells his life story in his own words in this documentary by longtime friend James Toback.
Film Review  May 29, 2009, by Marc Savlov
"...Simultaneously and bizarrely, the fighters and the fight became known, via the largesse of a byzantine network of managers, promoters, journalists, the “sweet science." But there was never anything sweet about Brooklyn-born brawler "Iron" Mike Tyson, whose ferocious fisticuffs and unmatched ability to psyche out his opponents were like some insane riff on Mandingo meets Piranha. In the ring, he was flat-out terrifying, unshakable, a thunderstorm of pain, his lightning-fast limbs corded like banyan trees, his face a lumpy, horrifying mask of endless hate..."

Boxing, that peculiar sport that engenders both brutality and balletic finesse in its athletes, has never particularly captured this critic's imagination apart from such related films as Raging Bull and...
Film Review  October 8, 1999, by Marc Savlov
"...For Harry, that entails training and grooming the upstart, fresh-faced boxer wannabes who come to him seeking not only his profound knowledge of the sport, but also his frequent, seemingly parental advice. Most of it is common sense -- stay in school, hang tough, winning isn't everything, et cetera -- but Harry, with his piercing, haunted gaze and solemn tones, is offering much more: a way out of an increasingly perilous 'hood..."
