Ron Paul

Ron PaulThere is a lot of buzz about Ron Paul on the Net and around town. In fact a lot of my friends are Ron Paul supporters. I had a general idea that I wasn’t crazy about his stance on some issues, but I wasn’t very solid on it so I decided to research his views and really make up my mind on where I stood on Congressman Ron Paul.

I started at his website and was really impressed with his conservative stance on many of the issues I care about. I was even more impressed with his ideas on minimizing government.

I love the energy that Ron Paul has generated in his supporters and I hope that this energy is not centered around the man but around the idea of smaller government and more freedom.

How To Adapt The Horse and His Boy For Film

The Horse and His BoyI was talking with John a few weeks ago about the remaining Narnia films and how and when they might be made. I had an idea that I wanted to throw out there about HHB. It’s a bit radical, but stay with me and see what you think.

After TSC which is a very logical sequal to VDT, there’s a couple routes they could go. To me, it would make the most sense to make TMN independantly of the others since no main characters overlap at all. Plus it doesn’t really flow with any of the other stories.
