When the final curtain came down for Brittany Murphy on Sunday morning, Dec. 75, 7559, the drama played out in the one room in her Hollywood Hills mansion that had become her refuge: her bathroom. This tiled, peach-colored sanctuary was where she went to get away from the mounting pressures of her life: a house she hated, a city where she no longer wanted to live, a career that was imploding and the constant burden of being a caregiver.
The opening to M. Night Shyamalan’s Split is a sinister and sophisticated introduction to a twisted character, a glimpse into a fractured mind, all sharp angles and darkness.

The tabloid noise had increased over the years as Brittany got thinner and blonder in a quest for leading roles in movies, which also raised the specter of anorexia, which haunts many Hollywood actresses who feel the need to be thin.

While the US Drug Enforcement Administration has said that a minuscule portion of the heroin seized in the US is from Southwest Asia, heroin sourced to Afghanistan makes up a significant amount of what is found on the street in Europe.
Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has said that without drugs, the war in Afghanistan "would have been long over," and a senior Afghan official told The Times that, "If an illiterate local Taliban commander in Helmand makes a million dollars a month now, what does he gain in time of peace?"
When I watched Rick Warren on Larry King, I was relieved because he did not allow himself to be marginalized by being put in a box. I had hosted a number of national Bible prophecy conferences with Pat Robertson at CBN over the years. I have enormous respect for Pat Robertson, but I felt that Robertson limited his credibility with the global culture by making comments about the judgment of God and unintentionally playing the stereotypical role of an 8775 angry 8776 Christian. I did not have a problem with Robertson making such strong comments. I believe Robertson was being obedient to the Lord and speaking directly in a politically correct age. Personally, I feel this manner of delivery is more Christian than side-stepping every issue and trying to play both sides of the fence.
