Filed under Entertainment, Music, News, Weekly Columns

Tweet (Akiit.com) Who’s the Mother of the Blues? Better say Ma Rainey! 1927. It’s a steamy Chicago summer, just like the rest. Hot. Humid. Even the streets are sweating. Ma (Viola Davis) comes up from Georgia to Chi-town to make an album. Her quartet arrives before she does, practicing in a cramped recording studio rehearsal room. […]

Tweet (Akiit.com) As I write today, our nation has reached significant milestones, which in their differences are connected. We’ve experienced the loss of a QUARTER OF A MILLION Americans to COVID-19. We’ve moved toward a total infection rate of 12 million. This upswing in the disease has overburdened and threatens to break our healthcare system. Under […]

Politics; Exhale. Inhale. Roll Your Sleeves Up.

Tweet (Akiit.com) It took five days for the 2020 election to be called for former Vice President Joe Biden. Five days with me peeled to the television and the internet. Five days holding my breath. Five days, meditating and praying for strength. I could not imagine four more years of Trump. I actually started going […]

Americans; A Time to Heal?

Tweet (Akiit.com) Joe Biden spoke of it during his victory-claiming, Saturday night speech. Time Magazine has now made it their new front cover. It is, we are being told, “time to heal.” But will it be that easy? And can a party with strong, radical elements lead the way in healing? Of course, we still do not know the […]

Movie Review; The Life Ahead.

Filed under Entertainment, News, Weekly Columns

Tweet (Akiit.com) Upon hearing the premise of this film, involving an 86-year-old Jewish Holocaust survivor and a 12-year-old Senegalese immigrant, you might think you’re in for 94 minutes of sentimental drama. In some ways, maybe so. In others not. But out of an abundance of caution, keep a box of tissues handy. The origin of […]

Boy, Hillary Clinton must be seething.

Tweet (Akiit.com) As she has watched the events of the past month unfold – or, more accurately, not unfold – Hillary Clinton had to have been seething. If Big Media, Big Tech and the deep state had provided her the cover it provided Joe Biden, she would have shattered the glass ceiling in 2016 and […]

Democrat Joe Biden, the Luckiest Politician in American History.

Filed under Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (Akiit.com) Joe Biden has faced many tragedies in his personal life. But if he wins the presidency today, he will have been the luckiest politician in American history. 1972: Biden only wins his first Senate race in Delaware after Richard Nixon misguidedly convinces incumbent J. Caleb Boggs, who had announced he would be retiring, […]

Health 101; Covid Halts Women’s Workplace Progress.

Tweet (Akiit.com) Economic recovery will be a long time coming.  The Federal Reserve Bank says our corona recession will last into 2021, and perhaps even into 2022.  If a vaccine is developed, a distribution plan still needs to be worked out, and there is still so much we don’t know about COVID.  We do know […]

Film Review; Spell.

November 4, 2020 by  
Filed under Entertainment, News, Weekly Columns

Tweet (Akiit.com) Omari Hardwick’s and Loretta Devine’s performances elevate this horror/suspense/thriller in ways the script may never have imagined. Devine, especially, steals scenes and makes her venomously evil character devilish beyond redemption. Think back to the 1990 film Misery, which was based on a Stephen King novel. A famous author (James Caan) is in a car […]

Four Silver Linings To A Donald Trump Defeat.

Tweet (Akiit.com) Are you nervous about tomorrow? I know I am! If you say “no” in the comments, I’m gonna go ahead and call you out for lying right here. Only someone not cognizant of the overwhelming stakes wouldn’t have at least a few butterflies, no matter how strong your belief or even your faith. […]
