Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! (Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective!)
My wife is right, I am anal retentive...., so now I keep a can of WD-40 next to the toilet! (Sometimes I feel like I'm just a bobble-head on the highway of life!)

How to spend a lazy Saturday afternoon!
It was a rather lazy Saturday afternoon so 'The Mrs. Herself' and I decided to watch the movie 'A Time to Kill' on the Oprah network.
Now first of I have to tell you that the cast is absolutely stellar in this movie and comprises such big names as Sandra Bullock, Samuel L. Jackson, Matthew McConaughey, and Kevin Spacey, with Oliver Platt, Ashley Judd, Kiefer and Donald Sutherland, and Patrick McGoohan appearing in supporting roles.
Basically the story revolves around a black guy, (Samuel Jackson) whose ten year old daughter is raped and half killed by two drunken rednecks. Sammy, not trusting the justice system down in Mississippi to convict these guys, takes it upon himself to ambush them on their way into court and blow them away with a shotgun.
The rest of the story focuses on conditions and attitudes down in "The South!"
('The Mrs. Herself' claimed that Oprah was showing this movie to remind her fans what Donald Drumpf's supporters are like!)
Basically it centers around whether Matthew can get Samuel off on a case of 'justifiable homicide,' and while doing so he is faced with the terrible problem of whether to stick with his wife, Ashley Judd, or have an affair with Sandra Bullock.
Now that's one tough decision, folks!
