An Oscar for Your Thoughts

It’s almost time for the Academy Awards. Theaters are showing their best movies and someone I know wants to go. I used to pay 15 cents to see Roy Rogers in black and white cowboy up on Trigger. Today with popcorn, candy and a drink it costs 20 bucks almost, just for me, to see violence in brilliant color. Six teens laugh a row ahead of me. Donal Mahoney
