'Planes, Trains and Automobiles': Conveys Friendship
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
03:21PM / Thursday, November 05, 2020
I wish that I were reviewing one of the several movies about this pox upon our house that are certain to be made when the horror is deep into our rearview mirror. But until that glorious return to normality has us resuming all the simple joys of life we take for granted, like going to the movies, I'll be retro-reviewing and thereby sharing with you the films that I've come to treasure over the years, most of which can probably be retrieved from one of the movie streaming services.

Staff Reports,

Clarksburg still uses its historic ballot box.  Election Day for the Berkshires was sunny and brisk, with little to impede a steady flow of voters to the polls.    For all the concerns about disruptions — they were boarding up downtown Boston! — voting appears to have gone smoothly and efficiently even with pandemic precautions.    The primary election had provided a good template for town and city clerks to follow and the surge in early and mail-in voting may well have taken the edge off long lines in what is expected to be a record-breaking turnout.    There were no local races on the ballot since the entire Berkshire delegation was
