“22 Jump Street”



                I only laughed a little at “21 Jump Street” two years ago. It wasn’t that I didn’t like the chemistry between Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum as a pair of bumbling cops undercover at a high school; it was just that for me a lot of the jokes fell flat.

From Where I Sit



Wow! What a weekend. For you non-car people out there, all our old racing sports cars running around on Friday and Saturday and then all the exotic cars and their trailer rigs on the road Sunday probably made you wish we’d all just go away. For us “car guys” and girls, it was a great weekend. I’m talking about the […]

Ask The Editor, June Wedding Edition
