2015 In Review

In the film "Citizen Kane,'' which Orson Welles made in 1941, there occurs my favorite passage of movie dialogue. Old Mr. Bernstein is talking about the  peculiarities of time.  "A fellow will remember a lot of things you wouldn't  think he'd remember,'' he says. "You take me. One day, back in 1896, I was  crossing over to Jersey on the ferry, and as we pulled out, there was  another ferry pulling in, and on it there was a girl waiting to get off.
