  • The Bodyguard
    ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Drama. Action. Romance. Suspense. Love/Hate Relationships. Thriller. Awesome Soundtrack.

    Kevin Costner's acting has always been unmatched. He is a very good actor. Whitney Houston's acting, singing, and charming persona is astonishing as well. This was very nice for Whitney's debut acting role. I believe it  was easy for her because for the most part she was exactly playing herself. If you are a fan of Whitney Houston's music you will love this film.  The characters are memorable.  I would watch this again and enjoy it.

  • Drawing the vote : the illustrated guide to the… by Jenkins, Tommy,
    ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    What a timely nonfiction book that is avaliable in print and in digital. I read the digital version of this book, but this book is avalaible as a paper title. Drawing the Vote has content can be pretty dry, but is a book with a heartful and important message. Voting is an undeniable right as an American citizen, though there are points of American history that would mean either the repression or uplifitng for a right to vote. Graphic novels is in my opinion an easier to stomach book that just reading text. This book listed out in linear historical order American voting milestones, what is electoral collage, when and who were able to vote, just as when specific laws were enacted to supress voting and various historical periods in the United States history. This book goes up to Election of 2016.
