    'Video Games' just plays at seriously examining the industry

    Elaine Stritch starred in show of her life
    Throughout her career Elaine Stritch was proud to call herself a "broad," because no truer word in English exists to describe her. The planet now has one less truth-telling, ballad-belting, brass-knuckled broad to call its own. The Broadway star...
