Are the red states really “red” or more “brown?” The May 1999 storm cost the town of Moore $1 billion in insured losses but unfazed Oklahomans continue to build there, the town’s population grew 34 percent between 2000 and 2011 compared with a state population growth of 9 percent. The 2013 recovery effort will cost billions of dollars, and the residents will look to the federal government for disaster relief.

Will Smith's presence, not just as co-star but as originator of the story, seems likely to carry box office receipts beyond the benchmark of Shyamalan's previous picture, the wretched "The Last Airbender," but those hoping for a franchise should navigate elsewhere.

My Mom & Dad were born in 1921, married in 1943. They grew up during the Great Depression and lived through WWII. Tonight on PBS I watched “Celebration: Stephanie Blythe Meets Kate Smith” where an opera singer sang songs made famous by Kate Smith during the 30s-40s and WWII era. I only vaguely remember Kate Smith, but apparently she was more successful than about any other star of the time, and I remember my Mom loved Kate Smith. One of her iconic songs was:
