Green Tip 43--Passing The Green Torch

Hocking Hills, OH –

Some people will fill their children's schedules to the brim being involved in multiple and various types of structured day camps or week camps.

    Tyson

    Practice . . .

    I feared for my hand.

    Two years ago at Hyde, an exclusive nightclub in Hollywood, I shook Mike Tyson's hand and wondered where mine went. The imposing, albeit short, former world champion boxer, was silently cruising the party, alone and predatory, an unsupervised missile if you would.

    The Merry Gentleman

    Not bad.

    "I'd say we've been pretty good for one another," Kate (Kelly Macdonald)

    Well, not quite, but that statement is consistent with na?ve young Brit Kate's cluelessness since she's talking to an accomplished assassin, Frank (Michael Keaton), whom she recently befriended and believes to be a good Samaritan.
