OK, with a title like Uncle Peckerhead, it’s fairly obvious that this is not a film that will win any Academy Awards. And, once you learn what it’s about, it’s not so much obvious as certain.

That luminous red hair. Those piercing green eyes. No wonder Maureen O’Hara was called the “Queen of Technicolor.” She was a fine actress in any format, but her feisty, fiery radiance was made for color film. And, despite eschewing bimbo/sexpot roles, she was a knockout, as much for the  int…

Unlike our childish, mean-spirited president who thrives on name-calling and social unrest, I never intend to stir up controversy with my words. And yet, last week, my column, “Cooper’s Shell Game Could Ruin Us,” did just that. Not long after YES! Weekly publisher Charles Womack posted my co…

I may not be good at very many things, but I’ve always been pretty good with words, so it is particularly frustrating to me that I can’t find just the right word to describe Sen. Richard Burr. “Congenial” comes to mind because that’s what he is whenever you meet him in person. “Humble” is an…

Last week, this publication paid tribute to “Wonder Women of the Triad,” of which there are many. In fact, our area is not only replete with female leaders of various businesses and organizations, but we also have a pretty good track record of electing women to public office. Greensboro has …
