Film Review: Only Arnold impresses in latest 'Terminator' film

The titular villain in James Cameron’s original “Terminator” wasn’t kidding when he said, “I’ll be back.” Shot, smashed, incinerated, he kept coming back (even when he didn’t promise to).

They bully everybody and then leave when their target doesn’t show up. One of the customers goes to the boxer’s apartment to warn him, but the latter is tired of running. We never learn what misstep he made in the past. End of story.

Letter: Bill raises concern about training

Re: “Bill envisions expanding health services,” Op-ed, July 1. The op-ed writer Lilia Babakhan, a second-year optometry student, supports SB 622 allowing her the potential to perform “minor procedures.” However, those procedures are anything but “minor” — they are eye surgeries with real potential complications, including, for example, the spread of cancer.
