The Fuss Over Actors Comments Over Dallas Buyers Club OP ED to Three Dollar Bill by Jamie Gilcig

Tonto and the Lone Ranger may have roots in Black history by Zig Misiak

Tonto and the Lone Ranger may have roots in Black history by Zig Misiak

CFN – Who doesn’t remember the Mel Brook’s 1974 movie classic ‘Blazing Saddles’? How we all connected with the towns people as they gasped in unison when they saw a ‘Black’ Sheriff ride into town.

So I Signed up for Broadcast Television After a Three Year Hiatus by Jamie Gilcig – September 23, 2013

CFN –  I did something I swore I’d never do this weekend.  I signed up for traditional TV signing with Shaw Direct instead of Bell or our local Cable company Cogeco.  (Bell didn’t answer their phone within 5 minutes and Cogeco is just wrong – a horrible company in my opinion.) It was an easy […]
