      There’s a scene in an old movie, “Meet John Doe” where a Yankee Stadium full of good hearted supporters of the John Doe movement are easily, almost instantly, stampeded in to becoming a blood thirsty mob by an evil businessman named D. B. Norton, who the film has earlier made abundantly clear, is the leader of a home grown fascist. The March Calendar shown above has marked dates of important events and popular US holidays. The most important dates are marked in red. If you move mouse over a day number a small window with additional information will pop-up. This extra information includes: day of the year number; sunrise and sunset hours with respect to the location.   The timelessness of Orson Welles’ feature film Citizen Kane lies in its treatment of enduring human flaws, rendering the text worthy of ongoing critical study. By delving into the influences of an erratic persona, love and socioeconomic forces on the complex human psyche, Citizen Kane maintains its textual integrity across contexts.
