A Wolf in Wolf's Clothing

While this blog does serve primarily to analyze film, one must be gangrene above the neck to dismiss the ongoing race riots taking place in America in this new millennium, violence that features several discernible factors common to both the Middle East and the US, including a common source of weapons manufacturers.
