Mommy, dearest, move over! This mamma’s packed with a live piranha, a man-eating Venus flytrap and her stuffed, dead husband. Oh wait, and who could forget to mention a stamp and coin collection to die for, literally. Any play that starts out with a title, let alone a script, as grotes
Another Sunday morning is here. The kids are running around the house bored out of their minds. They are throwing their basket balls against the wall, and waiting for me to finish the laundry so we can go to the park. We don?t have much of a lawn to play in. I lean against the washer, exhauste

Where is Mommy?
I remember the wind, flinging my hair back and forth like I was on a rollercoaster. All the fresh air filled my little lungs, making my eyes watery and hard to keep open. My legs were stretched out, taking up all the space in the backseat that wasn’t taken up by suitcases...
A very special day in my life occurred on Thursday, June 10, 2002. On this day I was flooded with many emotions. Somehow I was happy, scared, nervous and in a lot of pain all at once. This was the day my little blonde haired, brown eyed son was born. Becoming a mommy was something I had dreamed
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain is, not and should not, be considered a child's story. A story like this may corrupt a young child's mind. It deals with adult themes and concepts that are generally not suitable for young children. Als o, if used as a child's story it may confuse
Punks with cockscomb and full metal jackets
My personal opinion on this case is that punks should be allowed to be punks. Each generation have its own style and way to live. You can’t deny the youth to be themselves; this would result in a new generation of country-loving nutcase’s adults. Whic

A simple teddy bear separated me from my mother, yes; I understand that it’s demeaning, But quite incomprehensible. I was only four, as my uncle promised he would give me a new teddy bear if I come along with him to visit my father; I nodded with a yes. The next day I sat and waited for my uncle t

SHOULD WIZARD HIT MOMMY
John Updike’s story Should Wizard Hit Mommy’ raises a very pertinent and a profound issue. Should parents have the prerogative to always decide what is best for their children? And are children supposed to listen to and obey their parents unquestioningly?

1. An AI Primer: Two Points
Let us begin by distinguishing the Ben Kingsley-voiced bookends to AI, which I will call the outer frame, from the rest of the film, which I will call the inner narrative. The inner narrative begins circa A.D. 2125 with a speech by Professor Allen Hobby (William Hurt, r
