The long-gone Red Apple Rest as it was years ago
The theatre where the writer saw The Red Shoes still stands but it no longer shows movies

I don’t know why President Obama is not boasting about his not insignificant accomplishments as President. He is going about his campaigning in a businesslike manner, occasionally reciprocally attacking his opponent who is permanently locked into a nasty attack mode. Too little has been said, though, about what President Obama has achieved for the nation he serves.
Let’s start with the Affordable Health Care Act, which the Republicans have attacked from its inception, when they swore that their prime goal was to defeat Obama in 2012, regardless if what effect it had on the nation. For the first time in our history, insurance companies will not be able to say “no” to someone who needs health insurance, regardless of their medical histories. They also cannot tell an insured that their 27 year old adult child who doesn’t have health insurance can’t be included as a dependent on their policy. By themselves, these are giant steps forward for which the President deserved full credit.

Science Fiction writer Ray Bradbury, whose story "Sound of Thunder" was mentioned in the prior posting, passed away last week. He will be missed. His work will endure.
