Heck yeah!!!! Take a look!

In second place, George Lucas’ passion-project Red Tails, a $58 million film starring Terrence Howard and Cuba Gooding Jr. that chronicles WWII’s African-American Tuskegee airmen, took off with $19.1 million in its first three days. The strong debut came out of 2,512 theaters, which gave Red Tails a hefty $7,604 per theater average, the second-best in the Top 20. A few weeks ago, these high-flying numbers seemed unlikely. But  in the week leading up to release, the film gained momentum. – Entertainment Weekly

Here’s another one too.

Why am I so proud? Look to the right. This is a picture of my grandfather, Howard Arthur Tibbs, RIP 1986. He was 23 when this photo was taken. Isn’t he handsome? Check out this Youtube Video to learn more about my grandfather. My grandmother, Mrs. Tibbs and my Uncle Philip were interviewed by WOSU in 2008. Here is part two. Their anniversary is coming up on January 25th. They would have been married for 65 years.

Here’s a 10TV clip shot on January 20th at the Easton Towne Center premiere. You can see my Uncle Philip. Grandmother Tibbs is sitting in front of him with the board that Uncle Philip made with pictures of Grandpa toward the very end of the clip.
