Like most moviegoers after Inception, I left the theatre with a lot of questions about the movie. Last week, we were presented with yet another. Inception's soundtrack is comprised of two elements: composer Hans Zimmer's largely ambient, stringy score, and “Non, je ne regrette rien' – the classic chanson sung by Edith Piaf, which Leo and his crew use to communicate with their dreaming teammates.

This Sunday is the 234th birthday of the United States of America, and across the nation people will be watching baseball, illegally shooting off fireworks, eating apple pie, and generally swelling with patriotic pride. And on radio stations across the land, Studio 360 will modestly proffer a new national anthem ...

Sometimes we cling tightly to things we deem 'traditional' without realizing they're not as deeply entrenched in our history as we thought. Take Uncle Sam: he hasn't changed much since J. M. Flagg's iconic World War I recruitment poster, in which he appeared as an older white man wearing a snazzy ...
