Sometimes things happen which both fascinate and terrify. While I heard about the horror that took place at Jonestown, it wasn’t until I listened to the heart wrenching audio recording of the tragedy did I really look into the events of November 18, 1978. In this edition of True Crime Corner – what befell the congregants of the Peoples Temple, led by the charismatic pastor Jim Jones?

Glenn Walker On Red Dawn 1984

There’s lots of buzz about this film with the new remake in theaters. The flick is close to the heart of many people. I remember the outrage of some of my friends when they heard they were remaking this movie. Confession time, I have never seen it. Let’s find out why the original Red Dawn is such a classic together, and why “Wolverines!” is such a part of our culture, after the jump.
