Laughing through the tears

Editor’s note: The Savages opened in select cities Dec. 21, 2007. It opens in Tacoma tomorrow. The Savages seemed a curious movie to be opening four days before Christmas, but maybe not: Christmas Day itself is said to be the top movie-going day of the year, as families (a) seek something

Lonergan vs. Goings

Lonergan vs. Goings The Tacoma City Council is a bizarre group of players. All of them could easily be made into cartoon characters with accentuated personalities and plenty of goofy quirks.

Off the grid

Bobble Tiki likes to consider himself a moderately intelligent being. Bobble Tiki has no problem admitting he’s not the biggest brain to ever bobble to and fro in island-themed attire, but he does all right. Bobble Tiki’s not stupid, which in his opinion makes him smarter than most. Mrs. Tiki, however,
