Donna Reed was a wonderful actress
Dear Ken: Before Christmas I saw Donna Reed again in Its a Wonderful Life. She was wonderful herself in The Donna Reed Show TV series but what other movies did she make?

Reed, who was born Donna Mullenger in Denison, Iowa, and died of pancreatic cancer in 1986 at age 64, made 40 films and won a best supporting actress Oscar for her role in 1953s From Here to Eternity. Among her other movie credits were The Picture of Dorian Gray, They Were Expendable, Green Dolphin Street, Hangmans Knot, The Caddy, The Last Time I Saw Paris, The Far Horizons, The Benny Goodman Story and Ransom! The actress raised four children with the second of her three husbands.


"My Bid" by Joe Biddle

Tebow for President
So, I ask you, what does Tim Tebow do after he leads the Denver Broncos to the Super Bowl? In his rookie year, no less. Republicans are struggling to find a candidate they feel can defeat President Barack Obama. Tim Tebow is the man. Who can balance our countrys budget after so many have tried and failed? Tim Tebow, naturally.

Who can erase the national debt, which at last glance was bigger than the Grand Canyon? Tebow is the man.
