Many adults complain that today’s youth is dominated by video games and iPads. But no matter how advanced technology becomes, LEGO will always be there to provide the building blocks for good, old-fashion fun. Every LEGO box is a treasure chest of infinite possibilities, allowing us to construct castles, cars, and entire cities. LEGO has fueled our imaginations ever since 1949. Sixty-five years and 560 billion LEGO pieces later, we get “The LEGO Movie.”
Louie is a super affectionate and talkative red and white cat. He’s tall with long white legs and is quite handsome. He’s a bit shy or cautious with other cats — but he’d be fine with one friendly, mellow cat or even better as the king of his castle as your only cat.

A local company’s toys have won several awards this year including “Best Tech Toy” from Consumer Report but this toy isn’t something loud and battery operated — it’s a book, puzzle or wall poster.
For some in our city, domestic violence is a daily problem. Councilmembers Nowakowski, Williams, and myself teamed together to make ending domestic violence a priority. As a city we embarked on a “Paint Phoenix Purple” campaign that was very successful. The goal was to continue raising awareness for this debilitating behavior and elevate domestic violence as an important policy issue.
Phoenix is painting the city purple in October for National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
It’s pathetic that the anti-gun folks feel the need to misconstrue the facts in order to further their agendas. If indeed the Martin/Zimmerman tragedy had happened the way Ellen B. Davis stated (“Do we want to live in a state where aggressive people are free to use guns?,” AFN, July 19) Mr. Zimmerman would have been convicted. End of story. Fortunately, the justice system worked.
Gov. Jan Brewer said Tuesday that nothing in the death of Trayvon Martin or the acquittal of George Zimmerman of murder charges gives her second thoughts about signing Arizona’s own “stand your ground’’ law.

From “Snow White and the Huntsmen,” to “Mirror Mirror,” to “Hansel and Gretle: Witch Hunters,” to “Red Riding Hood,” the film industry has really been banking on adult-oriented fairytales as of late. Television has additionally gotten in on this fairytale fad with ABC’s “Once Upon a Time,” NBC’s “Grimm,” and, to a lesser extent, the CW’s “Beauty and Beast.” So what’s been causing this recent outbreak of fairytale reinterpretations aimed at grown-up audiences? Perhaps it can be attributed to the concept of nostalgia. Since fairytales are typically the first stories ever introduced to us, everybody identifies with them. By giving these timeless tales a PG-13 spin, they can appeal to our inner child while also satisfying our desire for something more mature. “Jack the Giant Slayer” comes close to working as a fun fantasy adventure for childish adults and sophisticated kids. If only the familiar story had more of a twist to it.

I am so tempted to write the words “I told you so” over and over again up to the 500-word limit allowed for a commentary in this newspaper. It would be so easy to gloat about how liberals won and conservatives lost. It would make me giddy to point out how Arizona is so out-of-touch with the rest of the Left Coast.
Through Dec. 24
