Not a garden-variety makeover
BBC America show creates paradise in student’s yard
One student’s home was selected for a makeover by a garden transformation show.

The surprise of a lifetime was waiting for Lori Wardrup when she stepped into her backyard.

Her husband James Wardrup lured her there by saying there was something the children wanted her to see.

The entire cast and crew of BBC America’s garden transformation show, “Ground Force,” was hiding around the corner.

Movie, violence overshadows gospels

I am afraid of “The Passion of the Christ.” I’m afraid people are going to watch the film (which is apparently the most violent movie film critic Roger Ebert has ever seen) and stop reading the gospels and appreciating them for their wonderful variety, narrative richness and even the oftentimes complicated historical and narrative inter-textuality in favor of a story that focuses on ultra-violent details that the gospels simply lack.
