Annie's the little red-headed girl who looks like Sideshow Bob. But this new version of Annie doesn't look anything like Sideshow Bob. That's because in this remake she is being played by Oscar-nominated actor Quvenzhan Wallis.

The men and women serving in the military is a separate issue. They didn't choose to go to the Ebola hot zone. They were ordered to go, and when they...
