Ohio Parole Board hearing on Kevin Keith

Columbus, OH – The Ohio Parole Board is now considering the fate of a death row inmate who many people think might be innocent. Much attention has been given to Kevin Keith, a man whose case has been taken up by the Innocence Project, a group that's been responsible for reversing convictions of some death row inmates in the past. But the state is not convinced Keith is innocent so it's pressing forward with plans to execute him next month. Ohio Public Radio's Jo Ingles has details on the controversy.

    Objectivity

    "The horror! The horror! " Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness.

    CNN describes Afghanistan's Korangal Valley as "the most dangerous place in the world." After seeing the powerful documentary Restrepo, I can understand the description, and I can admire an almost new dimension to that type of film: objectivity.

    The Switch

    Terrific male cast

    The Switch's first thirty minutes remind me of screwball comedies with repartee sharp, fast, and witty: unmarried Kassie (Jennifer Aniston) announces to her best friend, Wally (Jason Bateman), that she is going to arrange for a donor to have a baby. I know?-we've been there this year with Back-up Plan and The Kids are All Right, yet there's plenty of room for all kinds of donations.
