THE KILLOUGH CHRONICLES
by James Killough
This isn’t another review of The Avengers, but it is part of our impromptu Shoot Your Heroes Week here at PFC. While I’m not sure exactly what that means, I think it sounds rather dramatic and subversive enough to be one of our themes. Perhaps it will one of many, or perhaps this will be the first and last.
‘Shoot Your Heroes’ comes from the fact I’ve only had two heroes in my life, one of whom—a producer I admired more than any other in the business—I ended up wanting to kill after she tried unsuccessfully to fuck me over by poaching my investors on a film. The other, Captain Sir Richard Francis Burton, died in 1890, but I’m pretty sure I would have want to shoot him, too, at some point.
I 70-346 exam questions hurried Learnguidepdf into the local department store to grab1 Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test some last minute Chirsmas gifts. I looked at all the people and Learnguidepdf grumbled2 70-486 PDF to myself. I would be in here forever and I just 70-346 exam questions had so much to Testprepwell do. Chirsmas was Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test beginning to become such a drag. I kinda wished that I could just 70-486 PDF sleep through Chirsmas. But I hurried the Cisco 300-070 pdf best I could through all the Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test people to the toy department. 70-486 PDF Once again I kind of mumbled3 Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test to myself at the prices of all these toys, and 70-486 PDF wondered if the grandkids would even play whit4 them. I found myself in the doll aisle5. Out Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test of 70-346 exam questions the corner of my eye I saw Testprepwell a little boy about Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test 70-346 exam questions 5 holding a lovely doll.He kept 70-480 70-480 study guide touching6 her hair and he held Cisco 300-070 pdf her so Learnguidepdf gently. I could not seem to help myself. I just kept loking over 70-480 70-480 study guide at the little boy Testprepwell and wondered who the doll was for. I watched him turn to a woman and Cisco 300-070 pdf he called his aunt by name and said, “Are you sure I 70-346 exam questions don’t have enough 70-346 exam questions money?” She replied a bit 70-486 PDF impatiently, “You know that you don’t have enough money Testprepwell for it.” The 70-480 70-480 study guide aunt told the little boy not to go anywhere that 70-346 exam questions she had to go and get some other things and Learnguidepdf would be back in a few minutes. And then she left the aisle. The boy Testprepwell 70-480 70-480 study guide continued to hold 70-486 PDF the doll. After a bit I asked 70-346 exam questions the boy who the doll was for. He said, “It is the doll Cisco 300-070 pdf my sister wanted so badly for Chirsmas. She just knew that Santa would bring Cisco 300-070 pdf Learnguidepdf it. “I told him that maybe Santa was Learnguidepdf going Cisco 300-070 pdf to bring it . He said, “No, Santa can’t go Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test where my sister is…. I have to 70-480 70-480 study guide give Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test the doll Learnguidepdf to Testprepwell Testprepwell my Mama to take to her. “I asked Cisco 300-070 pdf Learnguidepdf him where his Learnguidepdf siter was. He looked at me Testprepwell with the saddest eyes Learnguidepdf and said, “She was gone to be with Jesus.
My Daddy says that Mamma is going to have 70-480 70-480 study guide to go be with her.” My heart nearly stopped 70-346 exam questions beating. Then the boy looked at me Cisco 300-070 pdf again and said, 70-480 70-480 study guide “I told my Daddy 70-486 PDF to tell my Mama not to go yet. I told him to tell her 70-486 PDF to wait till I got back from the store.” Then he asked me if i 70-346 exam questions wanted to see his picture. I 70-480 70-480 study guide told him I’d love to.

I love my Mama so very much and I wish she dind not have to leave 70-486 PDF me.But Daddy says she will need to be with my sister.” I saw that the little boy had lowered his head 70-480 70-480 study guide and had Cisco 300-070 pdf grown 70-346 exam questions so qiuet. While he was not looking I reached into my purse and pilled out a handful 70-480 70-480 study guide of bills. I asked the little boy, “Shall we count that miney 70-486 PDF one more time?” He grew Testprepwell excited and said, “Yes,I just know it has to be enough.” So I slipped my money in with 70-346 exam questions his and we began to count it . Of course it was plenty for the Learnguidepdf doll. He softly said, “Thank Cisco 300-070 pdf you Jesus Cisco 300-070 pdf for giving me enough money.” 70-480 70-480 study guide Then 70-486 PDF the Testprepwell boy 70-486 PDF said, “I just asked Jesus to give me enough money to buy this doll so Mama can take it with her to 70-480 70-480 study guide Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test give my Testprepwell sister. And he heard 70-346 exam questions my prayer. I wanted to ask him give for enough to buy my Mama a white rose, but I didn’t ask him, but he gave me enough to buy the doll and a rose for Testprepwell my Mama. She loves white Testprepwell rose so much. 70-480 70-480 study guide “In a Cisco 300-070 pdf few minutes the aunt came back and I wheeled Testprepwell my cart 70-486 PDF away. I could not keep from thinking about the Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test little boy as Testprepwell I 70-346 exam questions finished my shoppong in a ttally different spirit Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test than when I had 70-346 exam questions started.

I 70-486 PDF could 70-480 70-480 study guide not forget the little boy 70-480 70-480 study guide and just kept wondering if the two Cisco 300-070 pdf were somehow connected. Later 70-486 PDF that day, I could not help Learnguidepdf myself and I went out Cisco 300-070 pdf and bought aome white roses and took them to the funeral home where the yough woman was .And there she Learnguidepdf was holding a lovely white rose, the beautiful doll, and the picture of the little boy in the store. I left there in tears, thier life changed forever. The love that little boy had for his little sisiter and his mother was overwhel. And in a split8 second a drunk driver had ripped9 the life of that little boy to pieces.
THE WEEK FROM MY VIEW | REVIEW
by Eric J Baker
So I’m sitting there for the first hour of The Avengers thinking, “Where the fuck is Patrick Macnee?” Then the Incredible Hulk showed up and I was like, “Ah… it’s those Avengers.” I ought to pay closer attention to the marketing for these things.
Director Joss Whedon’s all-star, $220-million superhero mash-up opened this weekend to surprisingly good reviews for a summer popcorn movie, and has shattered all records with a $200-million-plus opening weekend to bring its global cume to close to $650 million in only twelve days. In other words, it’ll be profitable, but never officially—Disney’s previous bomb John Carter will see to that.
