Truth and Our Brand Is Crisis both raise questions about political power and our process political. Writer/director James Vanderbilt’s Truth recounts the events of “MemoGate” which took down Dan Rather (Robert Redford) and Mary Mapes (Cate Blanchett) and changed investigative reporting, according to the film. Director David Gordon Green’s Our Brand Is Crisis sheds light on how campaign strategists spin their candidates for the ultimate goal of settling their own personal grudges. While Truth has Oscar-worthy performances and extremely high production values, Our Brand Is Crisis doesn’t live up to its potential, but still has a perspective that will hopefully make voters think twice about what they are hearing about and from candidates.

There are some universal truths that we all can adhere to on our journey. Love is better than hate, at all times. The sun will come out tomorrow, despite the forecast. The Cubs will never, ever win the World Series. Another is that we all, each and every darn one of us, have been wronged by someone at some point in our lives. Maybe it was a teacher, or a coach, or a spouse. It could have been a boss, or a friend, or our very own child. It could have been the guy who slammed your bumper in the parking lot and weaseled off into the darkness. Being wronged happens, and will continue to happen, as long as we continue to draw breath.

Citizens for Modern Transit’s (CMT)
Try & Ride program Has Doubled
Citizens for Modern Transit’s (CMT) Try & Ride program has been on a fast-track to success since it launched in mid-June of 2014. In a mere 16 months, the transit advocacy organization doubled its two-year goal of helping 1,500 area residents “test drive” MetroLink and MetroBus to experience, first-hand, how easy and advantageous the system can be for the workday commute. To date, CMT has assisted 3,000 area residents through this program and shows no signs of slowing down.
