A great silence because the King is asleep. The earth trembled and is still because God has fallen asleep in the flesh and he has raised up...

    From director Sidney Lumet comes this intense military drama about life in a WW2 British "Glasshouse" - a detention camp for offending British soldiers. Life in the camps is hard, but this camp is harder than most, due to the presence of the sadistic Sgt. Williams (Ian Hendry), and the camp's disciplinary measure of choice - a towering mound of sand and rock known only as "The Hill." Trouble starts when a small group of strong-willed offenders (led by Sean Connery, in one of the best performances of his career) arrives at the camp. Will they break on the hill...

    Washington Post ^ | November 30, 2014 | Sarah Halzack
    Fewer consumers hit the stores or went online this Thanksgiving weekend, a sign that Black Fridays bloat into days and even weeks of promotions may be creating less urgency around the events that many retailers consider the kickoff to the holiday shopping season. The National Retail Federation reported that 55.1 percent of consumers shopped between Thursday and Sunday, according to a survey it conducted over the weekend. That is down from 58.7 percent the previous year. The NRF said total spending was $50.9 billion, an 11 percent decline from an estimated $57.4 billion in 2013.

Puns & Other Word Play Many see puns as cheap humor, one-liners, or groaners, despite their prevalence in our culture. They are most often seen in the names of businesses, or advertising. Others, like the writer Jonathan Swift, see them as a challenging art form, where one shapes words like a cobbler bends leather. 'Punning is an art of harmonious jingling upon words,' said Swift, 'which, passing in at the ears, excites a titillary motion in those parts; and this, being conveyed...
