Gray Hats, by Samantha Bryant
In the old TV melodramas I watched as a child, it was easy to tell the good guys from the bad guys. You didn’t need to look further than the color of their hats. You’ve got the Lone Ranger in his giant white hat riding on his tall, white horse. He’s a straight shooter, both […]
The Marriage of True Minds, by Samantha Bryant
Shakespeare’s Sonnet #116 is one of my favorites. Who can forget Kate Winslet reciting it in the rain, her broken heart ravaging her face in Sense and Sensibility? She thought she and Willoughby had something eternal, but he broke her heart over mere money. In particular I love this line: “Love is not love/ Which […]

Building a Hero I Can Believe In, by Samantha Bryant
She stands atop the building, the wind blowing her cape and long, flowing hair out behind her as she scans the horizon. Her perfectly-toned, eternally twenty-three-year-old body is poised to leap (a position that apparently involves torqueing your body to accentuate both your breasts and your butt at the same time for the viewing pleasure […]
