Did actually see "Signs" starring Mel Gibson on DVD and "enjoyed" some of the DVD's features such as the deleted scenes.

I found out why deleted scenes are deleted. There were a total of five such scenes:

1) A badly written piece of dialouge between Mel Gibson and his brother.

2) Two Flashbacks which really didn't further the plot.

3) A scene with a burnt dead bird on the ground which was actually better explained by some dialogue in the movie.

4) A scene where Gibson remembers dislocating his brother's arm. It made sense when he was remembering his children's birth but not this.

Conclusion: Scenes are killed mostly so we don't waste six minutes of our lives watching totally irrelevent things. And if we really want to, we can wait for the DVD.

Some updates. First, I added a poem about Rep. Dennis Kucinich. In addition, I've written several baseball columns and those can be found at the baseball page.
