    cared for by White doctors, the hospital was forced to hire more black doctors. This may not be the most effective way to enfranchise the Black community, but Long putting in any effort, especially in the time period of the film, is remarkable for a southern politician. Even though Long wanted to help the Black community on a much larger scale with legislation and policies such as a voting rights bill, he recognized that progress is slow. Long acknowledged that if he were to go all in on programs that would cause large scale black enfranchisement he would lose all power and influence he has over governance, so conceding that he still does all he can, including starting a “scandal,” because he truly does care about the issue. Finally, Primary Colors (1998), being the film with the most scandal, controversy, and arguably the most flawed candidate out of the total four, ironically and yet naturally is the film that shows the main character, Jack Stanton, to be the most decent kind of person at times.

    At the time I was a poor college student looking for a place to stay with my friends. We found an apartment for cheap. The rent was split equally between the four of us with one person just paying sixty dollars a month.In the apartment, there were plenty of windows that should light up the apartment nicely but despite that the house was still dim. None of us would have imagined that it was haunted. Often at night, we'd hear something that sound like footsteps but thought nothing of it as might…

    In fact, as an English teacher, I would venture so far as to say that, on the rare occasion, good grammar can be, not just NOT genocidal, but actually life-saving. Good grammar is, after all, the fastest, simplest way to ensure clarity of communication.

Back when I was in elementary school, we all learned this computer…
