Robert Fulford at the National Post takes an amusing look at the lessons learned at the movies.

While I might quibble with a few, they’re fun. What are some lessons you have learned at the movies?

Here’s one: If two people are arguing and one says something REALLY insightful and emotional, the argument instantly ends and some serious bonding immediately follows.

About Ben Bartlett

Ben Bartlett lives in Louisville, Ky., with his wife and two terrific kids. His degree is in Political Theory and Constitutional Democracy from Michigan State University, and he has a bunch of education from a bunch of other places with nothing official to show for it. He has taught high school speech and debate, worked for a congressman in Washington DC, and worked in the health and energy industries. He is interested in how pop culture, history, politics, and theology interact with the inner and community lives of individuals... which is weird because he now works as a business analyst. Few things make him happier than reading, discussing, and recommending books.
